Association of Coffee Mill Enthusiasts



The Association of Coffee Mill Enthusiasts (A.C.M.E) collectors' club is a non-profit organization dedicated to finding and preserving old coffee grinders and gathering historical information about their manufacturers.

Membership benefits include a quarterly newsletter, the Grinder Finder, which provides a wealth of the latest information about antique coffee grinders plus access to many wonderful, highly knowledgeable people who have been collecting coffee mills for decades. Annual dues are $40 (including spouse) for the continental United States. You may contact our Treasurer, John Sterneberg, opelgt69@gmail.com for membership details.

ACME members have access to replacement parts, decals for mills, castings for wheels, and many more resources provided by fellow ACME members.

The MacMillan Index of Antique Coffee Mills by Joseph Edward MacMillan

YES, ACME has it and so can you!

You may have heard about this legendary work, and now, thanks to the dedication of ACME, the much coveted and highly sought after "bible" of antique coffee mills has been republished and is available for purchase. This is a limited edition reprint but we still have some available. You do NOT have to be a member of ACME to purchase this fantastic reference book.

The MacMillan Index weighs 10 pounds and is over 1,300 pages and it is only
$125 plus $15 shipping inside the continental US. That may seem pricey, but it is worth every penny. (We waited three years to get our copy of this book.) If you ever had a question about a coffee mill, this is where you will find your answers.  If you are bitten by the antique coffee mill bug, you can't live without this book.

To purchase the MacMillan Index, please contact ACME's Treasurer, John Sternebert at opelgt69@gmail.com

Joe just passed away in 2007.  Our thoughts and highest esteem go out to his wife and family.
