Close to 10 years ago I gave a friend a brand new Zassenhaus 169DG purchased at Sweet Maria's. After using it less than a month he decided it was not for him and it's been on a shelf ever since. He gave it back to me and I'm selling it here as I'm happy with my KitchenAid grinder.

Price includes priority shipping and paypal fees.

Listing Details
Asking / Suggested Price: 95
Seller Name: craig weiss
Seller Location: Philadelphia, PA
Sale Type: For Sale

While I am not interested in purchasing this myself as I already have a Zass, I do wish to add that this particular Zass 169DG model was/is considered to the the crème de la crème of their hand grinders.  I wish you well in selling it.

Best,
Len

Len, or our OP....For the benefit of CG members, is this particular grinder designed for espresso grinding, or more "general purpose"/drip style grind?

IIRC the Zass is well suited for both.

I have one of these (also purchased from Sweet Maria's).  It is my dedicated espresso grinder.  My La Pavoni is pretty sensitive to proper grind and it does a great job meeting those needs.  It is not fast grinding for espresso.  Compared to my OE Lido, it is quite a bit slower, but at espresso level settings, it produces about the same quality grind.  The Lido is faster at any setting, and does produce a more consistent grind at the French Press settings however.
