Which set of burrs to get for Super Jolly?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get a new set of burrs for my SJ and trying to decide whether to get genuine Mazzer or third party.

A bit confused when I saw the following from Espresso Shop which is close to me:

They offer 3 different options with one of them being marketed as better than the originals?

 

Any suggestion?

 

Thanks

 

Steven

Yeah, confusing! The first 2 appear to be generics. For the tiny price difference I'd go the long life version, but in reality I don't think any domestic setting would reveal a difference.

Edit: on closer inspection of the pictures, the generics both appear to have chinks in the burr edges. Maybe it's just my interpretation of the lighting effect and the edges, but it doesn't inspire me when the Mazzer brand looks so clean.

Hunt around on 'thebay' if you are not in a hurry.

 

I paid £15 inc postage, for a set of original SJ burrs.

 

Personally I'd go 'real' ones.


Expobar IV, Classic, Mazzer SJ, Cimbali Theo 64 oh and Hario Skerton

I guess if you were bulk ordering then buying off-brand ones might make some sense, but for personal use it makes no sense whatsoever.

 

Buy genuine ones.

Always get the original burrs, I have seen some horrible grinds with Generic burrs....as for little nicks in the edges..just think about those 3 very large screw holes and then don't worry about it!
