My copper pepper mill post received some attention. I was told it was probably actually a coffee mill. So I researched it. This is what I came up with:
For centuries these hand made mills have been used to grind pepper, coffee, cinnamon and many other dry botanicals.
When you acquire an Atlas mill you are actually getting a piece of Greek history. These mills are named after the Greek gods, which were the embodiment of strength and beauty during the classical Greek period.
Manufactured in Greece in copper by Atlas, the traditional style grinds into a removable cup at the base. May be used to grind other spices.
