It's a coffee grinder!
This machine is called a "Quickmill," but according to its owner, Donna Shalom of Blends Coffee Roasterie in Canmore, Alberta, it's anything but quick when it comes to grinding coffee. "But it's great-looking, so I'm going to display coffee beans in it," she says. If you're ever in Canmore, which is spectacularly located near the entrance to Banff National Park, stop by Blends for the best espresso, not to mention the most interesting conversation piece, in the Canadian Rockies.
