  1. I am selling my MC5 grinder as I do not have space for it anymore. It has had less than 6kg of coffee in it. Looking for £95 inc postage. Please call or text 07739010011
  2. I'm wondering if there's much of an improvement in the Mazzer Super Jolly over the Iberital MC5. At present I've got an MC5 but a Super Jolly has come up cheap locally. To anybody unaware of the MC5 it's 1300rpm with 60mm flat burrs and a doser but having not used a Super Jolly I'm not sure how to compare! I'm going to guess there wouldn't be much of an improvement and the best option is to wait for a better grinder to come up. Thanks!
  3. I've recently returned to the forums after a bit of time away for about a year. When I left I had a frankly pathetic Krups XP5200 coffee machine and a Krups GVX2 burr grinder... Oh dear. Then I moved onto a Gaggia Cubika with the Krups grinder before upgrading to the Iberital MC5 you see below. Finally and very recently I've upgraded to a Gaggia Classic machine and wow what a difference! As you can see it's the Gaggia Classic Gold. I've got the basic bits to go alongside it, scales, tamper and milk jug as well as my custom patented grinds catcher (a glass ashtray!) and my
  4. This is officially my first setup, I've been using a moka pot for many years and decided to make the jump in to espresso. Hopefully these will be a good starter. I have: Gaggia Classic bought from Amazon as a refurb Rancillo steam wand New none pressurised basket from Happy Donkey Second hand Fracino Model B (Cunill Brazil, MC5) I have just fitted new burrs Motta tamper and timer from Cream Supplies Couple of espresso shot glasses from Happy Donkey Couple of walled Bodum glasses from Amazon. I think the only thing I could do with now is a knock box and a bottomles
  5. Hi all, I have just recently upgraded to a Mazzer Super Jolly. Got it from a fellow forum member. So I am recommending this Iberital MC5 commercial grinder to everyone who are just about to start a coffee journey like myself. I got the Iberital MC5 from another forum member about a few weeks ago, but stumbled across a Mazzer which I could not resist. From my experience, this is a much better grinder than the Iberital MC2 which everyone would start off with. The built is sturdy, so I would really recommend it to anyone interested in a coffee journey. Of course, you can't compare it wi
  6. Got my Iberital MC5/Cunill Brasil dialed in tonight, bought it on Monday via eBay and turns out burrs were blunt, seller went halfs on a new set of burrs and I fitted tonight. Such an upgrade from my trusty Gaggia MM! Looking forward to really tweaking and learning now! May remove the doser and get my brother to fabricate a chute for me, would like to ditch the 1kg hopper in favour for a 500g item. Overall i'm chuffed. Next improvement will probably be a new steam wand for the Classic.
  7. I've been thinking about the whole freshness thing and I currently have a 1 kilo hopper for beans which it takes just over a week to go through, cos its pretty much sealed I would think the beans remain fresh but I think it would be better to have a smaller hopper and seal the bag.......any thoughts on the issue??
  8. Ok just rode 6 hours to and from London for my MC5.......i hope its worth it ....I can't belive my grinders bigger than the coffee machine!
  9. I'm thinking of getting the cuisinart dbm8u, I've read loads of reviews that rate it a great machine and wanted to know what you specialists thought of it??
