    Que quiere decir "un trapiche"? La frase es: "Llego por fin al ranche y se echo de brazos sobre la rueda de un trapiche." ("A la deriva" por Horacio Quiroga)

    As said by Bocha, "trapiche" is a mill used to crush grapes or sugar cane rather than grain. Given that this is a fragment of Quiroga's "A la deriva", I'd translate it as sugar cane mill.
