FS: Nuova Simonelli MDX - £125 (London)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is essentially the same grinder as the Eureka MCMCA - grinds pretty much on par with the Super Jolly, and functions pretty much the same as well.

 

After having used this for 2 years (pulling a doubleshot a day), I have finally gotten lazy enough to get tired of the dosered routine, and have side-graded to a doserless grinder. This has 64mm burrs, an absolutely solid burr carrier, and is built like a tank.

 

Have removed the hopper because it was stupidly big, and replaced it with a lens hood, 3D printed lid and 3D printed ring to sit in the bean chamber. This came with a tamper attached that I removed (but still have lying around), as well as a lid-thing of sorts in the doser chamber that I also removed to get access to sweep out the chute because I single dose (I modded the wiring to remove the automatic cut-off switch which nobody uses because who is going to fill up the doser with ground coffee really?).

 

Based in SE-Central London, and willing to pull you a shot if you want to come by, but can ship this if anyone wants to arrange their own courier and risk damage to the doser - I would wager the grinder itself can run the tough mudder and come out whirring and spinning no problem (but it is heavy - to the tune of 12kg or so).

 

Sorry for the sideways pictures - don't know how to reorientate them!

Just thought I should include shots of the 64mm burrs - these are still in pretty good nick. When disassembling this I realised I had forgotten how easy this was to clean - because of the way the burr carrier works the top burr is always stationary; the adjuster shifts the *bottom* burr.

Quick bump - an excellent quality grinder for anyone who needs one which is also affordable like I did!

Used to have one, excellent grinder and was only gotten rid of because of its size at the time. At least on par with a super jolly (and in some ways its actually better, notably grind adjustment and ease of cleaning).
