Enjoy the freshly ground flavour of coffee with highly durable ceramic mills. This is a manual grinder with a ceramic blade. Without spoiling the taste and flavour of ingredients with the smell of metal, the ceramic blade makes the aroma of whatever you are grinding much more enjoyable.
This finely carved shape of the mill fits comfortably in your hand, and the natural wood material provides a subtle warmth to any kitchen. With the removable ceramic blade, you won’t need to worry about rust and you can wash the blade to alternate grinding coffee and tea without it affecting the flavour for future use.
This manual mill is produced by Kawasaki Plastics Co., Ltd.

Tsubamesanjo, Niigata Prefecture is a town famous for its metal processing and technological evolution. With the history and traditions of such manufacturing still preserved by craftsmen in this area, new advanced industrial technology continues to develop, making Tsubamesanjo homewares ideal products for the modern home, while still living within tradition.
Tsubame and Sanjo, often referred to as “mid-prefecture,” are two cities located almost in the center of Niigata Prefecture. Tsubame-Sanjo is famous for its metal processing, but it is also a region rich in nature – thanks to the Shinano river, Japan’s longest, that runs through the region – and is known as a production center for delicious rice and fruits. Its fertile land has long contributed to a harvest of agricultural products and prosperity.
The tradition of metal fabrication in these two towns dates back over 400 years to the Edo period (1603-1867), with the manufacturing of metal nails marking a turning point in Japan’s industrial revolution. Since then, Tsubame-Sanjo has become one of the world’s leading technological zones, continuously developing new ways to improve and evolve industrial technologies to meet new challenges amid changing times. But time-honoured techniques of the past are not forgotten. Some traditional industries, such as Tsuiki copperware and forging, are still passed down in an unbroken line from generation to generation, while simultaneously embracing present-day lifestyles with contemporary metal products and tools that no modern household can do without. In this way, the manufacturing tradition of Tsubame-Sanjo continues to evolve.
