    Santos No 4 - £150

    I am selling my Santos 4 grinder. I have bought it in late January this year for £200, cleaned it up, replaced the burrs (£67.80) and used it since then. However, I did get back to a Feldgrind. I don't drink enough coffee that hand grinding would become a problem. It must have went through less than 20kg since I replaced the burrs. I also removed the ball bearing and added some rubber to increase the friction of the adjustment dial. So it is stepless and does not shift the grind setting. I still have the ball bearing (will include it), so making it stepless again is a 5 minutes job. When I bought it, there was a dink in the back, which does not affect the grinder by any means. Also, since I cleaned it last time (around a month ago), I must have misaligned the burrs - it is still fine for brewed, but would definitely need to be readjusted for espresso. Other than that, it runs smoothly and brings decent results for both filter and espresso (that is, once realigned). It does not have a hopper, but I will include a lens hood that works as a mini hopper. Aeropress funnel works as well, but it's not included. I am selling this for £130, which I would consider a complete bargain. Glasgow, but can be delivered within a reasonable distance.

  2. So i currently have a Cusinart burr grinder... it works well with my (very cheap) Delonghi machine, but having made the mistake of joining here and reading about nice kit and nice coffee, I'm looking to upgrade. A local FB group has a Santos number 4 for sale for £120. They look to be commercial machines for grinding bags at a time, but there are a few threads on here suggesting they can be used at home and are quite capable, especially with a couple of easy mods (and the wife didnt say absolutely not when she saw the pictures). Would it be a good upgrade from the Cusinart and what should I look for when/if I go to see it?
  3. Really interested in peoples views on House Blends - the likes of Starbucks, Costa, Nero I owned 3 coffee shops in the 1990s which we roasted inhouse for and my muscles still remember lifting 60kg sacks of green beans. We sold them in 1998 so were kind of early in the coffee revolution Putting the roasting to one side -just interested in views from people who know about the makeup of the blends -clearly they are blended for maximum consumption I am assuming the basis of most house blends is Santos - If anyone wants to correct me or set me straight really pleased to hear
  4. Does anyone know where i can get a replacement burr set for a Santos 04 grinder? They are 63.5mm od and 35.5mm Id. 8.7mm thick (dimensions of old worn set) Ive seen them for £60 but hoping to get them cheap as possible. Cheers
  5. I have an old Santos No 1 grinder in storage (came from a low(ish) use canteen kitchen and I donlt thonk has ever had a proper service or clean. I'm using a Gaggia Paros which incorporates a separate Gaggia grinder (possibly an MDF grinder). I was wondering which would be better as well as specifics on maintaining them. I have two questions. 1) are there any useful threads on keeping the Gaggia grinder clean and happy 2) should I release my Santos grinder from it's storage languish and give it a new lease of life. If yes, are there any tips, mods, owner must know's that I reallly, well, must know please? I know some people have suggested the Santos isn't great for home use, as it's stepped and is geared up for grinding bags of coffee at a time (mine has the small bag holder attachment, albeit with some very perished rubber lugs). Any guides on taking it apart for cleaning would also be welcome. Thanks, in advance
  6. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122666072193?ul_noapp=true £125.
  7. Only at £41 at the moment with 2 hours to go:- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Santos-type-4-Commercial-coffee-grinder-/272264097891?hash=item3f64347063:g:Nz0AAOSwvg9XUzmJ I believe it's a 64mm flat burr machine, but don't quote me on it! Parts aren't readily available as per Mazzers but still a bargain under £100 posted I reckon..
  8. Anyone had any experience or heard anything about the santos 01 spice mill/coffee grinder. The model they use the legs off for making stubby ek43s? i think. cant find anything online. http://www.santos.fr/en/products/coffee/moulin-a-cafe-boutique/moulin-a-cafe-tiroir/01/
  9. Hey Guys, Just put some Santos grinder up for sale on eBay. I also have a La Marzocco swift for sale. I've listed it as used as it's a 2011 version but it's never been used! I also have some other items useful for commercial operations if you're interested. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/ricki/m.html

    Has anyone found a good, constant supply of Brazilian Santos in the UK from a good roaster? Thanks!
  11. So I have tentative upgrade permission from the boss.... she started it (honest) with a 'would a bigger machine be faster?' after the usual 20+ mins to make 4 single and 1 double latte with my Sage DTP. 'Yes' says I 'a dual boiler would be much faster..... but a better grinder would taste better' (we both like the workmanlike styling of our Santos 4) Hence our dilemma - the Sage Dual Boiler would be an obvious upgrade from the DTP, but longevity seems a bit suspect. The new ACS Minima looks brilliant. Or do we stick with the DTP and buy a Niche? Or will we need to upgrade both (will the Sage hold back a Niche, would the Santos hold back the ACS) We only ever drink Lattes, my wife likes them made with a single shot, I don't mind singles or doubles. Usually one each per day, sometimes two. And most Sundays I need to make drinks for 5 - we usually split 2 doubles but thats partly to save time. Let the suggestions commence (leave alone and go on holiday is an acceptable suggestion by the way....)
  12. I know there are some clever bods on here who like an engineering challenge. Is there anyone near Preston who fancies trying to make my Santos more suitable for Espresso? I know about the stepless mod (although I still haven't done it), and I've not aligned the burrs.... and I'd assume a much bigger knob would also aid adjustability, but how good would/could it be?
  13. Lovely bright sunny day up here in the North-East, and I'm starting off with an espresso from Hasbean's 2010 Premium Blend. I roasted these on Thursday, going a little bit darker than I normally would, and it seems to have suited the blend well. A subtle sweetness to the aftertaste. What's everyone else drinking?
