Nicholas Austin, qui était un quaker et le chef des Associés qui ont colonisé le canton de Bolton, a acquis ce moulin à café en remplacement d’un moulin à grains. Propulsé par une petite roue à eau, il permit de broyer huit boisseaux de
grain en 24 heures, fournissant ainsi la farine dont les pionniers avaient grand besoin.


Nicholas Austin, who was a Quaker and the Leader of the Associates who settled Bolton Township, acquired this coffee grinder as a substitute for a grist mill. Powered by a small water wheel, it ground 8 bushels of grain in 24 hours, providing much needed flour to the pioneers.
