anyone have one of these. if so what do you think??
David, If you check our host's web site you will find that they offer a wonderful collection of grinders for sale. If for some reason none of these suit your particular needs, wants, or desires, the ProLine is worthy of attention.
I do - and I have had no issues... I am not however a espresso drinker and use it for press, chemex and drip. YMMV Sean M. Cary Major USMC Tempus Fugit Memento Mori
Thanks for the imput. I realize I am opening a can of worms, and everyone has there own opinions. I know I need to upgrade my Mr. Coffee Burr grinder but I am on a limited budget. been watching ebay but not sure what to look for. What would anyone recomend for a workable grinder (espresso and french press) for not a lot of money?
I upgraded to a KA proline grinder from a Braun Burr grinder. I had a significant improvement in the quality of my French Press cup with the Kitchen Aid. The French press cup was smoother, a little more complexity or fruitiness, and cleaner. Blake

You may have missed the following notice at the top of the Sweet Maria Zassenhaus page:' "*STOCK NOTICE - PLEASE READ *- Supply problems with Zassenhaus continue... It has been at least a year now and still no mills are forthcoming. *So we have NO MILLS to sell and NO IDEA when we might see them*. Our supplier has received various re-stock dates from Zassenhaus in Germany - but nothing ever materializes. So at this point we will believe it when they show up on our doorstep. *Maria 11/10/06"* On 1/17/07, David F Iseminger wrote: <Snip>
I saw that after I posted and didn't want to post again. I see there are a few on ebay. anyone know where else you can get one? david
David, I have bought several Zassenhaus mills off eBay. I have also bought several Armin Trosser mills as well. They are excellent, comparable, and will do very very well for you. Expect to pay between $20 and $50, depending on how the auction goes... Mine were bought in the mid $20's... Zassenhaus mills are occasionally listed as Fassenhaus, because the "Z" on the handle looks similar to a scripted "F"... Look for those as well...

Ahhh! more...ebay...compitition...for....the...Zass. Must bid soon! haha! Just kidding, good luck David! On 1/17/07, Brett Mason wrote: <Snip> -- Laura Micucci www.freshroastedforyou.com
David, I just went through an unsuccessful search for one. Something else to consider: there have been concerns with quality control with the last batch of Zasses. I did find a Canadian company who may have had some, but the did not respond to an email and I understand they may not want to deal with Americans. Your best bet is ebay. You might also consider an Armen Trosser or Peugeot, which are also regarded well by some. I ended up finding a deal on a Trosser: $15 shipped, though I think I got an exceptionally good deal. They will generally be cheaper than Peugeot's. Paul p.s. One more tip: while I love the looks of my open-hopper grinder, bean fragments pop out under pressure when it's almost empty. It can get a little messy. :^) --
thanks for the tip I am now searching for hand mills on various sites
