Welcome, little spice grinder!
As soon as it arrived I tried it on some roasted cumin and coriander seed mix. The result was the coarse grind that I wanted, and the delightful aroma of fresh spice.
It is also capable of producing a very fine powder. It is handy for on the spot spice grinding, to release aromatic oils just prior to adding to the food. It is a sturdy, no frills helper.
I have been accustomed to using similar models through many years and travels. They never let me down, though I have abandoned them. Perhaps the ones I left are still being used in those distant locations.
I realise the unlikelihood of finding a spare in case the plastic lid is damaged and, therefore, exercise appropriate care. After grinding, some powder may need removing from beneath the blades. This is a known and accepted foible.
I have never used it for grinding coffee beans, but can highly recommend it as a dependable spice grinder.
