How dark is the chocolate colour on Peugeot Paris Mills?

10th December 2018 10:12

Q "Hi. I purchased Peugeot Bistro mills from you recently - delighted with them. Am now looking at the Peugeot Paris 12cm mills on your site for a Christmas gift. I like the chocolate colour in the picture of the 18cm mill but the 12cm looks almost black. Is this just a trick of the light or are they actually different colours? Can you supply with Classic grind system or is it 'U select' only. Which is most durable? Kind rgd.

A Hi,Thanks for your enquiry. The chocolate on the Paris is pretty dark - bitter chocolate I would call it. It is the same on all the Paris though, it does not change depending on the size even though I agree there is quite a difference between the 12cms and 18cms on the website! Both are on the extreme end. If you click through the images on the Peugeot Paris chocolate bigger sets , I would say that images 2-4 are more in line with the colour in normal light.

We only have the Paris mills with a U select version. The non U select mills tend to be sold in bulk to restaurants or hotels, rather than retail. The Bistros that you have are primarily sold to restaurants, hence no U select at all.

In terms of which is better, the U select means it is quicker and easier to choose the grind consistency as you can immediately go to the marker of your choice. But personally I don't think it makes much difference. I guess the simpler the engineering the less there is to go wrong, but the Peugeot mills all have the same excellent main grinders inside. I would go with the mills you like most and not worry too much about whether they are U select or not.
