Lunchtime testing

Popped home yesterday to try out the new gear with some fresh beans… having been on the road a bit lately, the bean supply was getting on a bit…

good results all round, and a well buzzed afternoon… a few pics of the results:

Still not the best that i have made, but itll take a little while to get used to the new grinder…

Just as a side note, the Portafilter im using is the standard one that comes with the LaCimbali (57mm) and i have converted it to a naked filter (with a holesaw). this functions perfectly… but you do still get the cut brass edge instead of a nice chromed finish like you would if you brought a pro version…

Im also using a triple basket here… probably one of my non standard bits of kit… 

My Mazzer all finished

Having sprayed this puppy… it was fine time to reassemble and get it into my kitchen!

New Burrs arrived

Given the state of the grinder, i wouldnt really be surprised if the burrs had ever been changed.

They might not look all that bad in the photo, but you could pretty happily lick them without worrying about cutting your tongue 😉 

Anyway, new burrs in, doser back on and all ready to go home 😀

I have spent a fair while trying to get used to the new grinder. Its probably just that im used to my old one so much that its going to take some time. i cant complain too much thought, this was the third shot i pulled…

Its certainly not perfect, but i have paid good money for worse 😉

First grinder restoration, Enoch … a quick paint job…

so i picked up a Mazzer Super Jolly that was pretty well shagged… pulled it apart to find its innards in excellent condition (aside form the burrs) and decided to give it some cosmetic work…

You can see some pretty hefty chipping on the grinder, particularly around the bottom. So in some areas i had to sand it right back to the metal.
