The quiet little municipality of Wiernsheim in the state of Baden-Württemberg has a very unusual museum: one that focuses on coffee grinders. The Museum for Coffee Grinders presents more than 1,000 examples from all over the world on three floors. Its oldest coffee mill dates back some 300 years, and the weirdest is probably the one that looks like a grotesque satanic face. Visitors will discover not only grinders designed to look like cabinets and models featuring decorative corner pillars, but also grinders presented as bridal gifts, travel grinders and specially made one-offs.
