made in japan

IMG_2601 Our electric coffee mill recently went to "coffee heaven".

I have a feeling it was because I used to wrap the cord around the mill after using it, so the connection must've gotten wonky.

Anyway, I was looking around on the internet for something "made in Japan" and came upon a manual coffee mill made in...Minoo!

IMG_2602 From what I could tell from their site, they didn't have a mortar and brick store, only online.

(They do list the directions to their factory, though I'm not too sure if they want people coming directly.)

Since I had to go to Umeda for some other errands, I checked out some places that sell equipment for coffee.

IMG_2603 I found it at Tokyu Hands. If you've ever visited Japan, you'll know Tokyu Hands has almost anything you're looking for.

The handle is removable, take off the cap and put your beans in the top. Grind your beans and then open up the bottom canister.

IMG_2600 The whole thing is washable too.

The part that grinds the beans is ceramic, so don't drop it!

Love it though.

At first I thought it was the bottom part of a shaker. How cool that you were able to find a locally-made grinder.
