Where is this made? Good solid european quality?
Mine came in a box branded "Leopold Vienna" with multi-lingual text defaulting to Dutch, followed by German, then English, then French.
Aaaand then there's a "Made in China" sticker on the bottom. That probably answers your question. The rest of this is a review.
The overall construction is pretty light. The grinder body and vessel are all fairly thin gauge spun stainless. I'd call it light construction rather than solid. (My Imusa stovetop espresso maker is solid.)
But it does grind coffee! Ever since it arrived we've been taking turns grinding coffee for my wife's Keurig reusable capsules. We've had to, since like any other hand-grinder, it takes an inordinate amount of grinding to produce a relatively dinky amount of ground coffee. People got tired, so we swapped off. (The irony here is that I don't actually drink the coffee that comes out of her Keurig. I've got a Breville Barista Express sitting right next to it. That's more my style.)
We wound up buying two grinders here on Massdrop. Once the second one arrives we'll start the side-by-side comparisons.
Thank you for posting such a thoughtful and informative review. Most helpful!!!
