  1. Hi guys, For sale is my Mazzer Mini E Type A grinder, with 4 month old burrs fitted. I bought it from a user on this forum about 18 months ago, and it’s seen one or two 18g shots per day since I’ve had it, and the previous owner said they made 4-6 shots a day. It is 6 years old, and only ever used domestically. It has genuine Mazzer Super Jolly burrs, fitted 4 months ago, which are still very sharp, so the grinder can produce an excellent 18g shot in approx. 10-13 seconds, and I’ve applied SuperLube to the grind adjustment threads (as recommended by users on this forum), so the grind adjustment is silky smooth. I have both the large and small Mazzer hoppers, which will be included in the sale. Happy to provide additional photos or the serial number on request, or a video of the grinder in operation. Looking for £380 on collection from Leeds. I’d be willing to drive to meet, and I’m willing to package up for shipping, but buyer would need to arrange shipping and insurance + £5 for the packaging.
  2. Hi guys, I have a 2006 Gaggia Classic. I am looking to buy my first grinder but I’m having difficulty settling on a model. I have about £350 to spend. Ideally I’m looking for a new grinder due to warranty etc. I couldn’t fit a Mazzer etc given my current lack of kitchen space! Up until about a month ago I drank espressos - about 5 doubles a day I think. However, I have recently discovered the joys of pour over coffee so I am thinking about whether I need to be looking for an all purpose grinder rather than an espresso grinder. I do like the eureka specialita and thought I’d settled on this till I tried my first pour over. Now I think I should be looking at the Perfetto. Even though the specialita’s spec says it’ll do everything from espresso to French press I imagine that as the grind gets more coarse the quality perhaps falls back a little. Plus I’ve heard that going from espresso to a coarser grind takes a while to find. The perfetto is meant to help with this but does it’s ability to grind to espresso level suffer as a result (it has smaller burrs than the specialita). Or, should I get the best espresso grinder and maybe look at a smaller grinder for my less regular pour overs - like a hand grinder or wendelboe’s new WiFi grinder? And now, to make matters worse I’ve just learnt about the Niche grinder (though I think the eureka’s Do not retain many grounds). Any advice would be appreciated.
  3. have managed to source a small 320g hopper which will clear my kitchen units, so i'm withdrawing this for now
  4. Hey. Any advice on a good value commercial grinder that can cope with espresso AND filter at high quantities? I don't want too spend alot, but throw your suggestions at me and we can go from there. I use a Krup expert for personal use.
  5. Hi New here. Wondering whether to get a second hand grinder or a new, currently reduced, sage smart grinder Pro for £159? What's my best option? Cheers
  6. Thanks to a little bit of luck, I’ve got a new grinder incoming soon. It does mean the Mazzer Super Jolly I’ve been using needs a new home. I’ve owned it since the middle of January this year, and it’s chewed around 20 kilos of beans in that time. The burrs are spotless and have barely run in. There is however a lot of history on the grinder! It was originally rebuilt by a well known forum member ‘jimbojohn’ before moving to ‘craigsailsbury’. I bought it from this thread: https://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?42336-Mazzer-Super-Jolly&p=561653#post561653 It looks identical and hasn’t changed in the slightest! There’s lots of photos on the above thread. I have added a stainless steel grinds catching dish which will go in the price. Have a dig through that thread for all the history. I can do more photos etc, just say what you’d like and I’ll see to it. Im based in Groby, Leicester, but am regularly in the Bedford area during the week. Collection or meet up only as I really don’t have enough packaging to wrap it up safely. I’d like the original £210 for it, payment in cash or transfer or meetup is OK.
  7. Fully working with original box and spare set of burrs. Black GLOSS colour. Great grinder and reluctantly selling as I seem to be using less and less - having a declutter! £200 but fair and reasonable offers considered. I 'd like to think like minded people won't take the mickey! Collection from Rugby (CV21) or Market Harborough (LE16). Happy to meet in localities / next to M1 or M6 if someone is passing. Can arrange delivery via courier for £10. Details of the grinder can be found here but the one I am selling is GLOSS finish not MATT (saves me tying!): http://www.myespresso.co.uk/product/eureka-mignon-mk2-on-demand-grinder-with-timer-gloss-black-free-1kg-beans/
  8. Hello everyone! I have a Sage Smart Grinder (the original version, not the Pro) that I've just replaced with a Super Jolly. The Sage is a decent starter grinder, very capable for Aeropress and the like. It can also grind for espresso but isn't quite fine enough, I don't think. It was bought in late 2013 and has been used sporadically since. I'm asking £50 for the grinder and, depending on where you are, postage should be around £5-10. Comes with cleaning brush, 58mm portafilter guide and bottom tray only.
  9. Greetings! I was wondering if anyone has any experience/views on the new Mignon Manuale? While it doesn't have all the features of the more expensive Mignons (Manuale is at £239) it does have their anti-clumping system. I tried a quick search of the forum but couldn't find anything on the Manuale. Thanks for your time Martyn
  10. As above with 54 mm ceramic burrs by Ditting, also comes with conversion kit back to steel burrs, all accessories present and unused. Only bought the grinder as new in `July and at most 2 coffees a day, can grind by weight and/or time into a hopper, also grind by time into portafiller frame. Grinder is as new been thoroughly cleaned, comes with a 1 year warranty which I am sure is transferable, any other info tech etc Baratza.com Price £620, live in Wigan area, would be willing to travel up-to 50 miles to deliver or meet half way, same price if someone wants it posting.
  11. Nothing I can add really to what you've probably already read/heard about the EK43S so I'll not ramble on. It's had a mere 6kg of coffee through it. The SSP Silver Knight burrs are amazing and offer more range in the espresso zone than the originals without losing the signature profile of the EK (as best as my basic pallet can taste). 6 Months old and had 6kg through it. Any inspection welcome. Supplied with all the original packaging. £1850 No offers thanks (collection from Sheffield). Images added shortly, but it can be viewed on eBay, where it's also listed, if you want to see them before I get chance.
  12. Hi. Sorry if this has been asked before, i did try a search. Does anyone know of a short hopper option for the Rocket Faust, i'm expecting delivery any day but i already know it's around 10mm too high for where i need it to fit! Thanks
  13. Hi guys new to the forum and loving looking around so far although i may end up spending a fortune on all the bean recommendations! Seems like a great community of knowledgeable folk with that in mind i am going to bore you all with another grinder question. I have a gaggia classic and recently got a bottomless portafilter for it, i was expecting to pull lovely looking shots like my local coffee shop - shout out little bird coffee house, Inverness, Scotland! - however as you can imagine i ended up with a disaster of multiple sprays everywhere! I presumed it was my poor tamping technique, grind size, dose size, pressure issue with the gaggia or a cheap basket but after spending a few quid and a lot of trial and error it appears to be my shoddy grinder that is the problem - if i had come here before then i maybe would have started there! I figured this out as when i go to buy fresh beans from the local roaster they always offer to grind them for me to which i usually decline but this time i said yeah and i got them ground for espresso, home loaded up the 18g VST and behold, a lovely shot! At the moment i just have a Cuisinart dbm8 grinder, so you know, you can imagine how silly i feel thinking this would make a decent espresso! So, time to upgrade. Budget £2-300 Will take new or used. Probably just be used for espresso and can use the cheap grinder for filter still? Whats the consensus? would love to jump on the niche bandwagon but a bit rich for my tastes! Thanks for your responses to the same old post, appreciate it - and if anyone has anything for sale DM me.
  14. Black. Unmarked. Spare set of burrs (still sealed). Timer and Manual modes. UK plug. Purchased June 2016 from Bella Barista; warranty until 2nd June 2019. I’ve replaced this Mignon with a Niche – otherwise I would not have considered parting with this little 5kg beastie. Used for 2 shots daily, so about 30kg in total. Smoke free home. £180. Cash on collection or PayPal or Monzo. Postage will be extra based on location and insurance requirements. No original box, but I’ve plenty of packaging materials. Collection from Hither Green (SE13) or Cannon Street / Liverpool Street / Spitalfields (London).
  15. Hello All, I would be really grateful for your advice on the following. I need a quieter, faster upgrade for my 2013 Gaggia MDF grinder. It’s been reliable but I find it very slow and noisy (especially if trying not to wake my wife when leaving early for work) Also messy - wasteful. And we both find it intrusive when we have guests in kitchen diner. In addition, because I alternate making a caffeinated cup for me and a decaf for my wife I measure the beans by volume and grind enough only for each port a filter load. Should I change to a doserless grinder? At first I thought that a Baratza 270w with quick swappable caf and decaf hoppers might be more efficient. But am put off by cost/noise and talk of unreliability. Is the Eureka Mignon a good way to go? Rancilio Rocky? Clear info on noise levels hard to come by. And of of course I hope to get a taste upgrade as well! Many thanks Keith Constraints: £375 max, under counter height 55cm General usage: 2 caffeinated and 2 decaffeinated punchy flat whites. Using Union beans. Used to use JB Johannes Bauer when I could get them 2013 Gaggia classic - seems to be the older solid build. Put on rancilio wand but I can’t use well and it’s slow so I use (dare I mention here????) Dualit frother!
  16. Fracino Heavenly SOLD To pair with this I have an Innova branded i1 grinder. This is the same as the Ascaso model of the same name, my assumption would be that Innova make products for Ascaso. Please note this is NOT the cheaper i1 mini. 54mm burrs in good condition, super fine worm gear adjustment, and on demand grinding with a timer press-switch. Super convenient. I have a knock draw which can be included too. Condition - there's a crack at the back of the grind chute, this has been there since my purchase and hasn't progressed. Otherwise all in good working order. More pictures. £250 for the Heavenly, £50 for the i1. I might consider part-ex for a decent filter grinder that doesn't take up the whole kitchen. This machine is huge so no postage. Collect just north of Oxford. I would consider local delivery I'd prefer you come to see this first.

    Grinder Commercial

    Looking for a coffee grinder to run a small coffee bar not huge volume but has to be good. Mazzer major, creado, etc What have you got?
  18. I'm currently using a sage grinder pro for my espressos. I was wanting to ask if we should be messing around with outer burr setting as I've seen a few people say we shouldn't and that they only should be changed if the burrs are starting to wear out. I messed around a bit with the settings outer burr - 3 knob adjustment - 2 and my espresso extraction time 20s achieved bean:coffee ratio 1:2.5 Somehow it just doesn't feel right for me. any tips or comments on it? but I'm also afraid to adjust outer burr more in case I cant adjust it anymore when it wears out, is that a concern at all?
  19. Good afternoon everyone, I’ve got a bit of a problem with my MC2 (non doser) the timer doesn’t work so after a chat with Scott over at happy donkey I ordered a new PCB. I have just fitted the new PCB but it keeps tripping out as soon as I press the porter filter in to grind. Has anyone got any ideas on this on? the grinder worked with the old PCB just no use of the timer.
  20. Is this for real, keep looking at it but not sure why they are so cheep. Are they any good for espresso’s and the Gaggia classic? ebay 323348698095
  21. Which is best a Doser grinder or and on-demand one?
  22. Hi I'm selling my krups GVX231 grinder as I no longer have a use for it. I purchased this for using with an aeropress (which I no longer have) and French press (which I have lost interest in using). I'm asking for £25 delivered which I think is fair. It is in Excellent condition and will come I its original box. more images can be provided if required. Thanks
  23. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/mazzer-mini-coffee-grinder/332681533683?hash=item4d755d58f3:g:PzoAAOSwomVbHRrZ Looks in good condition and pick up isn't that far from me. Thoughts?

    MBK Aergrind

    I'm interested in seeing if anyone out there is interested in selling their MBK Aergrind before I plump for a new one. I'd prefer something in warranty given the issues reported recently.
  25. What a conundrum MBK are! Do you... a) Buy an Aergrind from MBK for £90 and take your chances with delivery and warranty b) Buy an Aergrind from Machina Coffee for the new price of £120 (a £30 hike on earlier this week) and know you're getting good service and warranty c) Buy a Feld2 from MBK in the same sort of price bracket, but again take your chances I suppose I'm more leaning towards the Aergrind for ultimate portability, but it's a tricky call to make. I know prices were going to go up, but a 30% increase seems steep.
