A steam mill in a window which did me surprise, A grinding of coffee to make the folks wise :- The steam powered coffee grinder seems to have been a reality. A poem (Bar540) by Joseph Hodgeson born in Rishton, Lancashire circa 1783 begins "He grinds his coffee now with steam, / To shew the world how he can scheme, / And how he buys with ready cash, / Because his credit's gone to smash."
