Anyone come across this method of supplying beans?

Recommended Posts

This came on a grinder that I had to take away with my when I bought a machine. The grinder is fitted with and adapter to screw it into.

;) Seems 3 generations have passed their slow roasting method down from father to son.

 

Can's dated use by mid 2012, 2kg of beans and the grinder looks like it has not been used since. San Remo's version of a super jolly.

It’s common in commercial environments, the supplier supplies in larger cans that hold say 3 kgs, the supplier gets the free advertising from the side of the can

Yeah I've seen big tins of Illy on top of Mazzers in those traditional Italian greasy spoon cafes in London.

The can comes from the Netherlands - Algra Mocca D'Or Breda BV. Looks to be this lot

;) Biggest problem for me is the grinder. The exit from the grind chamber differs from some - more like a Robur. Might find myself cleaning it up to see if the change makes any difference,

Illy once came up with this ages ago. For the longest tume, however, their logo would sit upside down once can was locked onto grinder. Believe they changed that only a couple years back, but may be wrong... around here it's a pretty common sight. I always thought of it as very practical and ingenious logo placement - no need for extra POS material. Quite smart!

Similar to AMBULANCE spelt in reverse on the front of Ambulances so when one is behind you, viewed in your mirrors it is spelt in the correct way.

Aha, I always thought the guy that designed the front of ambulances was dyslexic...So if ones coming towards you from the front you cant read it and if it's coming from behind, then it's spelt OK. Perhaps they should have put both versions. If fact what if they renamed ambulances to Health and national Nationwide Ambulance Help...then you could have HANNAH on the front and rear. It would then always read OK wouldn't it?

So if Illy had only had the foresight to spell their name illi all that bother about reversing the print on the tin could've been avoided!

Wouldn't it still be upside down though?
