Dear Justin and Britta

I would like to thank you for the wonderful Camano Coffee Mill. We love the grinder and enjoying our French press like never before. I especially appreciate the care that went into packaging. I bought the grinder as a present and it was already packed ready for a gift.

Your hand-made product has brought us much joy and satisfaction. We are looking forward to new products from your company.

Sincerely,
Mariya

Hi Justin and Britta,
Received our Camano Coffee Mill only two days after I ordered it. Wow! The packaging was super fun; love the burlap sack. Thanks for the "extra" added touch. We love our coffee mill. It is beautiful. Thanks so much and Blessings on both of you.

I purchased my Camano Coffee mill grinder three years ago, searching for an affordable grinder for use with my Gaggia Espresso maker. I thought for the price, I can always use it to grind for my French press if it didn’t work out.

The package arrived in a nostalgic package and packed with plenty of shredded unbleached paper, wrapped in a burlap bag (nice touch). After fiddling with the adjustment, I was able to make PERFECT espresso, and after three years of daily use (mostly for coffee), I have adjusted the grinder only one level down for perfect espresso.

Last year I was curious to see if the mill could grind fine enough to make Turkish coffee. On the lowest setting, I was able to make a passable Turkish coffee, better than my local coffee shop!

This is a fantastic product and much cheaper than the electric alternatives. Yes, it does take awhile to grind the beans, but I really find it therapeutic and definitely worth the time it takes to make an exceptional cup of coffee.

Justin and Britta,
I loved working with both of you and feel as if I know you! Justin took care of me like I was one of the family. He worked with me on pricing & shipping and was so accommodating to all my specifications! I\'ve seen plenty of \"reclaimed wood\" products out there but none match
up to the quality of the true 100+ year old barn wood that Justin uses in his pieces! Not to mention the unique antique/salvage pieces he collects to incorporate into each one of a kind piece and creates his own designs! Justin is a true artist and it\'s evident in his work! Every last detail...I\'ve had over 50 guests up at my cabin and my sled table is the biggest conversation piece! Why fill your home with production line pieces that we\'ve all seen
in every store and website? The craftsmanship and uniqueness of Justin\'s pieces are timeless
and worth every penny! Not to mention, they\'re indestructible and true family heirlooms! I\'m proud to have a genuine Red Rooster, one of a kind, sled coffee table in my cabin and will treasure it for a lifetime! ~Gina

Dear Britta & Justin,

A Bialetti Stovetop Espresso Maker, An Aerolatte and your CAMANO
coffee mill - your coffee mill made enjoying coffee in Canada possible
- finally!
I am very glad I have now a very very perfect alternative to the local
dead-mouse-coffee or Tim\'s.

YUM YUMMMM I was enjoying you coffee mill a lot this week. It\'s
perfect! The wood, the metal, the jar bottom and the second jar from
the bundle to switch ... Just WoW. Love it!
The adjustment you made for me is perfect, too - couldn\'t buy such
fine espresse (nor coffee) here. And the smell ... YUMMMM
I hope my friends will feel the same when they will get the second
mill I ordered for Christmas ... they will, I am very certain.

Have a very Merry Chritsmas and further success with your awesome products!!!

HUGGGGGGGG

Yvonne

My Thanks

Hi Britta and Justin,

Just one more time to thank you folks, since my earlier emails seem to have gone astray. I am happier than I can express at the way your Coffee Mill works, and I am even happier that my one problem with it got straightened out in a very pleasant and helpful manner.

My wife is completely hooked on black coffee grinders, on the order of your The Mabana Pepper Mill. I am not there, yet, but I am getting very close to being unable to live without at least one of those Pepper Mills hanging around my homestead.

By the way, I should mention that this is not a springtime of life occasion for me; I am enjoying my 72 years old with even more pleasure than I had for the first several decades.

Again, thank you very much. Take care. Have a good weekend. And look for me to be coming back for even more of your products.

Camano Coffee Mill

My Camano Coffee Mill was received Christmas 2010
and is used each time I grind coffee. The grind is
perfect, the glass jars (I ordered 4 + lids) make this
Coffee Mill number one. Great Product and I'm happy
you added a newsletter.


The Best Service

Jan 06, 2012 by Karen Martin

I would just like to say that the package I received today was absolutely the best ordered item I have ever received - lovely white box sealed with your company label, coffee grinder inside a burlap bag tied with twine, a personalized card with my name on it, shredded newspaper lining the bottom of the box, & very quick delivery. The coffee grinder is of the highest quality. This is a gift for my husband who just loves it. Thank you so much.

Hey, I just wanted to stop by and let you know…WOW!! I ordered a coffee grinder from you only a couple days ago and already it has come. To start with, your packaging is superior. Even though this is a Christmas present for someone else, it was quite a treat for me opening up your packaging and seeing your beautiful presentation. As for the coffee grinder, it is so so beautiful! I’m not much a coffee drinker myself, I prefer tea, but I’m trying to figure out any excuse to order one for myself. I am so happy that I opened up the newest edition of Martha Stewart Living and found your products, as I will be sure to come to you for future birthdays and Christmases (and maybe spoil myself occasionally!).

Thanks so much,

Dear Britta and Justin,

Just wanted to say that I finally got my mill today {U.K.}, and that I’m very pleased with it. It’s a pleasure to use, and I’m currently enjoying the best cup of coffee I’ve had in a long time – great french press with no dust and dregs! Count me as one of your many satisfied customers.

All the best

The coffee grinder arrived today YIPPEEEE!!!!! I’m so impressed!! I love the
hand made quality and it’s just so inventive too. The detail of love that so
obviously goes into this beautiful gift is unique indeed. I love the
shredded newspaper, the burlap bag, and the card. I’m so happy to be giving
a hand made gift of such high quality, it’s just amazing! My coffee nerd is
going to love love love this!!!

Thank you very much for the coffee mill it is a beautiful piece of art and grinds perfectly. It’s nice to know you can still find quality products out there if you look for them. I collect antiques and this fits in perfectly.

Thanks again,

What a great little coffee grinder, so easy to use and adjust. The packaging with its label, custom box and burlap bag was quite an unexpected treat. Not only is the grinder most attractive but it comes suitably packaged as its own gift wrapping. Top that off with excellent communication from a vendor selling a product made in the USA, what more could one ask. Now, with a US made, stove top, stainless steel percolator we’re all set.
Thank you.

Thanks, Britta! I appreciate the extra touches. Here’s a little story for you:

Last Friday afternoon, at an outing with my department at work, the vice president gave me a cigar on the balcony and we talked for an hour about a shared affinity for things that are low-tech, nostalgic, and/or put us back in touch with simpler ways and times. Of course i had to mention Red Rooster Trading Company, and told him all about my new manual coffee grinder. Among other things, i told him that the the visceral pleasure of feeling the slight resistance of the beans as i grind away really adds a whole new dimension to the enjoyment of the coffee (which is organic and fair-trade, naturally). He was smiling the whole time i talked about it, and said he would absolutely check it out. First thing Monday morning, i sent him an e-mail reminder with the website name, as i said i would. He wrote back right away, “I already bought it!”

My new coffee grinder arrived yesterday and I’m not sure what I like the best–the coffee grinder or the cool way you packaged it!

I suppose it is funny to take such delight in some shredded newspaper, burlap and a few printed tags, but there it is: I was delighted! It was pure fun opening the package–reading a PERSONAL note from a PERSON who lives here in the US and MADE something useful, fun and pleasing to look at.

I didn’t need to grind any coffee, but I had to! And it was fun and produced perfect results. Of course, it wasn’t effortless like using my Braun grinder, but it was how things should be done. My Braun grinder will be going to Goodwill. And, my modest weight-loss goal will be helped along by a tiny bit of added manual effort.

Thanks for a great product.

Dear Britta—We received our Camano Coffee Mail today, and wanted to let you know how pleased we are with your product and your prompt service. The handwritten note was so unexpected, and such a nice touch. My husband is so impressed with the coffee mill. And that doesn’t happen very easily, so that is a huge compliment to your business. Anyway, thank you again!!!! I could have written more!!!!! We are still amazed, too, at the fast delivery in the middle of the horrible nation-wide winter weather. Wishing you the best!!!

We have had our Camano Coffee Mill now for several months and enjoy it as much as the first day it arrived. It combines rustic beauty with durable functionality in a way that makes one look forward to preparing the coffee beans for brewing, no matter the method you choose to brew. Our sense is that each time we use the mill it works better than the last. Perhaps, we are getting used to the grinding process, which in many ways is a lot of fun, or perhaps the machine itself is becoming more efficient the more we use it. Not sure, but that is our impression. This is a hand grinder that every coffee connoisseur should own, particularly those who believe, as we do, in the advantages of grinding by hand instead of by a power-assisted device. Yes, there are other hand grinders out there on the market, some cost more, a few cost less, but the Camano Coffee Mill is a very special device worthy of a place of honor in your kitchen. We certainly like the look and the feel of it, hope you do, too.

Britta, The mill just arrived! It’s beautiful, and we really appreciated the plastic-free packing and the hand-written card. I used it already tonight to make some decaf in my Aerobie AeroPress. I tightened the nut at the top all the way and got a perfect fine grind. I just ordered a French press with some Christmas money and can’t wait to see how well it works for a coarse grind. We’re so pleased with the mill and will recommend your products to all of our coffee-loving friends.

Talk about the best birthday present ever! I am so impressed with this product as well as your care in a plastic free packaging! I have been trying to watch the plastic products in my life–so this Mill fit the bill to replace the electric coffee grinder that I re-homed. So happy to have a REAL product in my hands! Did not expect the awesome care you put in to the natural shipping supplies! The personalized note included was a wonderful touch. Thank you so much.

“Order received this week. Very pleased! Great presentation; the enclosed card was a nice personal touch. Felt like I was receiving a gift not just something I ordered. Very nice quality grinder, Works perfectly.Hand-grinding coffee has turned the morning ritual into something quite special. Its not just the improved taste of the coffee, there is something earthy and visceral about the all hands-on process from grinding to pressing. Well maybe it’s my imagination, but isn’t that what good coffee is all about? Thank you and kind regards.”

“I wanted a coffee grinder that made little noise, little mess, and gave me total control. I found all this in your mill, and it’s sturdy and easy to use. Your efficient customer support just makes it that much better a product. Keep up the great work, and thanks again for such a no-fuss, quality grinder.”

“Got it yesterday! Used it this morning. Love it! I made a very coarse grind for a 5 minute soak in a french press and the coffee was wonderful. I think I’ll use this fine little grinder the rest of my life. Thank you for proving American craftsmanship is not at all dead! You should be proud of what you make, as it’s useful, tough, and beautiful.”

Antique pepper mill“The grinder you’ve made is an “old soul” though brand new! It is beautifully made: the finish is lovely. I’ve tested my coffee grinder for a couple weeks now, and I am very pleased. It is so easy to use and is perfect for my single cup of coffee in the morning. I know coffee is partly about “waking up”, and the screeching-motor-boat sound of an electric grinder might be considered an aid in the process of rousing from sleep, but I much prefer the pleasingly quiet munching sound my hand grinder makes. Thank you for a quality product that I love. ”

“I LOVE my new coffee mill! No more shattering of the morning peace with the electric grinder. I am so pleased with the consistent grind which was why I was searching for a burr grinder in the first place. Not only was I surprised to find a hand crank coffee mill, but I have a great love of fine woodwork, and your price was amazingly reasonable. Thank you.”

“Your coffee mill arrived on my doorstep today. I am at a complete loss for words – it is truly exquisite and the pictures on your website don’ t do it justice at all. I have searched for years for the right one – something functional, not just decorative, that had the appeal of an antique grinder. I am absolutely thrilled with this purchase and you are also to be commended on the timeliness of the delivery from the date it was ordered. THANK YOU.”

“The mill more than meets my expectations. I am not much of a coffee drinker. I use the mill to grind dry seasonings to cook with. One recipe called for a half cup of freshly ground pepper. It would take me forever to grind that much pepper with my previous pepper mill. Plus my arm would probably fall off, from all the twisting motion. I had the correct amount of pepper in about 30 seconds. Continued success with the mill. Thank you.”

“I have been using the Camano Coffee Mill for two weeks now, and it works great! I have a 12 cup Coffee machine and one “Full” hopper is all I need for 12 cups. It only takes about 4 minutes to grind, all the while smelling the aroma of freshly ground coffee; a very enjoyable 4 minutes! The lock on the grind adjustment works great and keeps the grind consistent. The quality and workmanship on the Camano Coffee Mill is excellent! My wife thinks the mill is cute and wants me to leave it on the counter as a decoration! And also no more warnings to my wife that I am about to grind coffee :) So far I am extremely pleased with the Camano Coffee Mill. Thank You!”

“It arrived this past weekend, and I used it for the first time today. By far, it is the absolute best cup of coffee I have ever had. It’s by far my new best friend in the afternoon (lunch coffee is the best) and I can’t wait to start getting up early to make a bit before work too!”

“Received your fine product late last week and I must say, this is truly a work of art. I adjusted the grind and began preparing my first pot when it brought back precious memories of my grandma making coffee in this manner back in Mexico in the 60’s. I really enjoy using this mill…it’s a great way to start each day. Thank you for being who you are and doing what you do.”

“I wanted to thank you for such a quality product. I eagerly awaited the arrival of my Camano Mill and was pleasantly surprised when it came. I do a lot of adventure touring with my motorcycle, and the Camano Mill is the perfect complement to my stainless steel french press. No more preground coffee!! I can sit under a tree in the midst of nature and brew a batch of coffee the way it should be done. Itʼs the perfect size for my pack and is so simple to use! The electric grinder hasnʼt been touched since. Thank you for a wonderful piece!”

“Thought I’d drop you a note acknowledging receipt of the mill, and noting my satisfaction. I was particularly favorably surprised by the ease of grinding. The ease is also an implied compliment to the blades’ sharpening, etc. I think the use of the jar as receiver for the grounds is brilliant. No other mill I’ve used, mechanical or electrical, has emptied as easily and completely. Nice work!”
