    # Auction won by shapeshifter $130 #Vintage SPONG Cast Iron Grinder UK

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Auction: Vintage SPONG Cast Iron Grinder UK

    Description: An extremely generous Coffee Snobs member has donated his own collection of high Quality European vintage coffee grinders to the Flood Appeal charity Auction. This is an amazing, big hearted offer.

    The Gentleman in questions wishes to remain anonymous so I am listing the grinders on his behalf. This collection was not for show: they were serious grinders collected by a true coffee snob for actual daily use. They are tested and each one has a brief description from the owner. They will be posted to the high bidder anywhere in Australia FREE (overseas bidders are also welcome~ but will have to pay me for shipping to their country~approximately $25-45AUD).

    Owners Note:
    " No 1 Spong which is a pleasure to grind with ( I have *
    two) "

    I also own a few Spongs and can attest to their perfect grinding. The grind is adjusted by a stepless lever on the reverse and the Spong grinds very evenly and efficiently- and fine enough for espresso. The lever has a long throw. They are made of heavy duty cast iron- and will last forever- indeed they should be both flood and fire proof (within reason). They can be wall mounted or quickly clamped solidly onto a bench. Perfect grinder for the caravan or boat.

    This No 1 Spong (the smallest Spong and quite rare) is missing the little metal tray that catches the coffee. This is common- and no problem - it is easy to find a suitable small container to sit under the grinder: A Large deep lid will suffice- or similar. Otherwise the condition is PERFECT!

    QLD Premiers Disaster Relief Appeal
    http://telethon.smartservice.qld.gov.au/

    RSPCA QLD Flood Appeal

    Ends: Wednesday 26th Jan - 9pm (AEDT)
