Arcade No. 25 coffee mill was one of the earlier glass jar mills with its name embossed on the neck beneath the jar. The original model had an air-tight glass hopper. The hopper is screwed into the neck. The metal parts are coated with black enamel. It was designed to be attached to the kitchen wall. The jar holds one pound of coffee beans. 15 1/2″ tall.
The easiest way to identify No. 25 grinder is by looking at the glass bean hopper and the metal lid. If you look at the bean jar, it is marked “Arcade 25”, and the lid is stamped “Arcade”. No. 25 mill uses a generic catch cup.
