  1. I'm selling my coffee gear as follows: SOLD - Fracino Cherub - SOLD Mazzer SJ - bought second hand from this forum also in 2013. The Mazzer doser handle return spring snapped a few years ago and I've never replaced it. Collection from Lancaster but happy to deliver to reasonable distance Northwest. PRICE REDUCTION: £160 for the grinder, which is advertised elsewhere. The Fracino Cherub in the photograph is now sold
  2. This might not be the correct area, sorry if it isn't. I am struggling to find and video reviews of the Mazzer easy tamper. I'm basically wondering if it's worth the financial outlay? I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has actually owned or used one. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi, I'm only doing several shots a day and I want my grinds to be as fresh as possible. Looking at my (manual) doser, it looks as though you need to grind quite a few beans to fill up all the compartments for it to then give out a consistent dose? At any one time there will be quite a lot of ground coffee sitting there and in the grinder outlet tunnel. I realised this whilst experimenting with the grind settings. At the moment I'm grinding a bit more than I need for the tests and pulling the doser lever back and forth a few times to fill the filter which doesn't seem right? How do you all use the Mazzer doser for low volume fresh ground coffees, or do you just do away with it, extend the outlet spout etc? I also notice the grind delivery from the doser into the porta filter isn't perfect and I seem to get a bit of spillage to the sides. Thanks
  4. Just tidying up the coffee corner - and I've got four of these grinds trays - in good used condition, with usual surface scratches from use. No severe dents or anything (as many of the used ones have!). Sample photo shows one of them, below, but they're all very similar in condition. £15 + delivery each (1st Class is £1.87) Updated: TWO left now. First come, first served...
  5. Hi folks- has anyone transplanted an Anfim doser onto a Mazzer? Thinking about putting an Anfim doser on my Robur. Will it fit? Any problems encountered by those who have done it?
  6. I wonder if a cover plate from Major will fit in Mazzer Royal ? https://www.theespressoshop.co.uk/en/Mazzer-Major-Motor-Cover-OEM---SMJ0FRA02/m-4036.aspx Thanks
  7. Hello, As I’m looking at buying an espresso machine for Home in the next couple of months I wondered what opinions were prevalent re grinders currently available. I currently own two MBK handgrinders... a Feldgrind for home (used for V60 and Aeropress) and an Aergrind for work (used for Aeropress). Should I just use my Feldgrind at home and put all my money into an espresso machine or should I buy something like a Eureka Mignon or try and hobble on with the feldgrind until I can source a second hand Mazzer Mini? Any opinions on this are appreciated.
  8. Morning all I’m looking at purchasing an SJ but I’m confused about the different types as described below Available in the following versions: MANUAL: with manual switch TIMER: with timer switch AUTOMATIC: with start every 12 doses and stop when the doser is full being a newbie I have no idea what to go for. Any advice??
  9. Due to being dropped my Royal has stopped working. Initially it was fine but I noticed the fall has misaligned the motor in the case which meant some grinds were getting from the shute to inside the case. It then after about 30 mins stopped so I started dismantling to clean out and fix. Unfortunately, the labels I attached to the wires become unattached so I set about rewiring based on a schematic from a Major online as best I could. It had already had the hopper safety switch removed when I bought it on the forum. I have replaced the capacitor with a new one but it still won’t work. I thought I’d post my attempt at the wiring before I buy a new Contactor as it might be my attempt that is the problem. Hope someone can help. I’ve tagged some who know far more about these things than me! @coffeechap, @jimbojohn55, @Badgerman
  10. hello guys i am looking to swap this excellent condition SJ, for a single or double boiler espresso machine. of course I will pay the difference. the label numbers starts with 13 so I guess it’s a 2013mod but obviously had a very easy life even before I get him it looked mint and minimum used aswell. I would prefer a Rancilio Silvia or a better machine,there is something i don’t like about gaggia’s,still don’t know what and why ? I used to own a Bezzera BZ 07 so an HX machine would work even better for me as I have already temperature surfed a lot ? The Mazzer has recently fitted with new original Mazzer 33M burrs and short hopper so it won’t need anything else anytime soon. I am selling as I own a mini electronic type A aswell,which fits under my kitchen cabinet fine (the SJ unfortunately doesn’t) I’m open to offers just try me thank you
  11. Hi folks, Some have probably noticed that i was warking on some old clone of Mazzer SJ (astoria). I dont want to bother you showing all the process but wanted to share some before and after photos. Here they are: And new "hopper" with "inspection glass" Everyone knows that the hopper is the collapsible 3in1 lens cover. The lid is a jar lid from IKEA I happen to have for a long time. Upcomming works on this: 3D printed fork rest for the portafilter backplate motor cover timer relay - if I'll find something that would fit my needs. Let me have your thoughts and comments on this little project. cheers
  12. Is my planned upgrade from a Mazzer Royal to a Mythos a worthy one?
  13. Mazzer Mini (£100). I believe this is a 2011 model (based on serial number as photographed). It's been modded as photographed (I did not perform them so not sure what they are. I think there is a sweeper mod + whatever has been done to the middle.). Gaggia Classic (£100). This is one of the 'newer' ones. Pressurised basket. KNOWN FAULT: Brew thermostat is not working, so the boiler will not heat unless you switch it to steam power. I used to temp serf with it so it was not a problem and now I do not have access to the tools to deal with it. All collection only from NOTTINGHAM (near the university). I have almost 0 mobility atm as I've not got access to a car. I'm not really up for posting them given the relatively low value + lack of boxes. I'm open to reasonable offers. Photos to follow EDIT: Price Drop (again) Cherub £300 - sold Mazzer £100 Classic £100
  14. Can someone list some parts that typically need to be replaced on a Mazzer Super Jolly grinder? I live in North Africa, where I recently bought a used Mazzer SJ. It's working well, but I imagine it will need some spare parts eventually. It may have been used commercially in the past. As parts are hard to come by in my location, I'd like to buy a few spares during a trip to the U.K. in December. Thank you very much.
  15. Have Mazzer and the Spanish company Quality Espresso ever collaborated on a grinder? I have a chance to buy second-hand what appears to be a Mazzer Super Jolly Luigi grinder. What's strange, though, is that the doser has the brandname "Quality Espresso", a Spanish coffee equipment manufacturer. I'm wondering if Quality Espresso re-branded Mazzers to sell as part of their equipment. I've actually found a few photos on Spanish second-hand sites of what appears to be this same grinder with the Quality Espresso brand. Everything else seems to be a bonafide Mazzer Super Jolly grinder. The manufacturer's label, which shows electrical specs and such, calls it a "Mazzer Luigi Super Jolly Timer". Attached are the photos from the online classified ad. The hopper isn't shown, but I've seen it in a separate photo. For some reason, he's got a tamper sitting in the opening where the beans go in. The guy also sent me several videos of the machine actually grinding coffee. He seems like a straight-up dude. He's an officer in the Moroccan military. What's most important is that it seems to function fine and produces good-looking ground coffee, at least based on the videos the owner made at my request. I won't be able to see the machine until later this week. Still, I'm mystified by the mixing of marks and am hoping some aficionado out there can enlighten me. Thanks!
  16. have managed to source a small 320g hopper which will clear my kitchen units, so i'm withdrawing this for now
  17. Hi All, Got my Mazzer Super Joly a few days ago, there's no local roasters close to me that I know of so until I can order some online I got some Costa Coffee beans just to trial the grinder. At first the grinder at its finest would produce beans to course even at its finest setting, i took the top burr off, cleaned it and zeroed the burrs. This time it worked unbelievably well, so well my course grinds are now like fairy dust and once compact the Gaggia Classic cant pass water through.. so is there anything i can do with the fairy dust other than bin it?
  18. Hi, New to the forum and new to home barista coffee. I am pretty sure I will get an ECM espresso machine but I am unsure on the grinder. It seems that everyone advises to spend as much as possible. My thoughts currently are an ECM S Automatik 64 and Mazzer Mini Electronic A (preferably used as this beyond my budget). Any further advice on choices. Thanks
  19. Hi all, Apologies if this is a bit of a stupid question - I'm trying to understand the dial for adjusting the grind on my (recently acquired) Super Jolly. So it obviously does work as a relative tool, but I can't imagine that these things are built with the kind of capacity for grinding exactitude that they are without the numbers on the dials having more objective reference value. There's of course plenty of documentation on this forum and elsewhere with regard to finding the "zero point" on a grinder and every unit being a bit different, but with the SJ specifically, am I right in thinking that there isn't actually anything physical on the SJ that the '0' on the dial is supposed to line up with to define a neutral position? Apologies if I'm being dumb and there is something blindingly obvious that I have missed,
  20. I've had this grinder from new, bought in 2010. It is the type b version where you press the button to select the single or double dosing. Probably had a kilo per month through it, so roughly 200 kilos of life left in the burrs. I do have the grounds tray, just not shown in the photo. Looking for £300 and pick from location in the Oxford or Newbury area.
  21. Hi guys, For sale I have a Mazzer Luigi Major grinder - according to the serial number plate this is a 2014 year grinder and was the 'second' coffee machine grinder in a very quiet coffee shop... It has been used a handful of times, mostly just for grind and dose practice. I'm not massively coffee savvy however I will try and answer any questions as best I can. The burrs are very sharp and I would estimate have had less than 20kg of coffee put through them in total. It currently has a french plug as I bought it in France but can be changed very easily to a UK one! Looking for £350 cash from Plymouth (UK) Cheers
  22. I'm reading all those posts and still i'm struggling to decide which grinder i should choose. So far i can spend maximum 130 pounds. But maybe if i'll wait i can spend bit more? 200 pounds. Obviously i would like to spend as less as possible. I am using Aeropress now and French press from time to time. But in the future i will buy Gaggia or Rancillo Silvia. Only I drink coffee in our household 3 times a day maximum. So huge grinder is not for me i guess. Is it worth to buy Comandante C40 or something cheaper. Or Wilfa WGCG2 Svart, or Mazzer ? I dont know what to do
  23. For sale Timmyjj made laser cut Major / Royal Laser cut gauge kits - Cost £17.50p inc postage (UK) - update (2 now available) - sorry will not fit the Jolly Following Tims move to Oz the postage cost of his famous laser cut gauges has become prohibitive, however Tim has sent on to me the last 3 of his major / royal gauges in one parcel to save cost. To be clear I am selling these and take full responsibility for postage, delivery returns and payments in the unlikely event an issue should arise - find below full details of the kits and how to fit them, payment will be via paypal This could well be the last chance to purchase these gauges Jimbojohn55 This kit includes: 1x laser etched adjustment gauge 1x pointer holder 3x pointers of different lengths 2x spacers, one for the Royal and one for the Major 2x M4 16mm dome head hex bolts Important notes: This gauge utilises the attachment for the hopper interlock switch. You will need to bypass and remove all components, including the external metal mounting plate. You will need a 3mm gap between the adjustment collar and the case. If it is less than this you will be unable to adjust the grind fine enough when the pointer holder is installed. You will not be able to use the standard hopper with the black plastic base over the adjustment collar. The gauge will be too thick to fit. The official adjuster rod *just* clears the pointer holder where it attaches at the interlock attachment position. If you have a custom made rod, clearance may be an issue. You will need to provide your own double sided tape. Fitting: Remove all protective film. If your shiny silver gauge looks all scratched up...remove the protective film before contacting me! With the gauge placed onto the adjustment collar, check the height of your usual grind setting and match it up to a pointer length - The bottom of the pointer is level with the top of the case and top of the pointer is level (or close to it) with the top of the gauge. Remove the adjustment collar. Select the appropriate spacer. The Royal will need the 5mm spacer, while the Major uses the 3mm one. It should sit over the hole for the hopper interlock switch and is slightly smaller than the original metal piece. The pointer holder then goes on top of the spacer and the whole thing can be bolted onto the machine. There is a little movement with the bolt holes to allow finer position adjustment as needed before tightening. Check positioning and ensure there is enough clearance for the pointer to sit on the outside of the adjustment collar. You may wish to replace the adjustment collar to verify this and to also confirm pointer length before gluing. A single drop of superglue behind the pointer will affix it nicely as it is not in a visible location. Other glue such as 2 part epoxy, etc, should work fine. Be aware that superglue will melt the acrylic to create the bond and will visibly mark the acrylic, so care is needed and only a tiny amount is usually required. The etched gauge is held on with double sided tape, setting the zero point to whererver you like [ATTACH=CONFIG]30116[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]30117[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]30118[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]30119[/ATTACH]
  24. Here are a few very easy mods that I carried out to my Major which I'm really pleased with, so I thought I'd share.
