Topic: Finally got a good grinder (5 msgs / 77 lines)
1) From: Paul Jolly
Had to jump in with all the new toy talk---I figured I'd be waiting for weeks for a good price on a good grinder (having passed on the Rosito Bisani RR45).  Then last night a Mazzer Super Jolly shows up on Ebay.  Still too big for my kitchen, but the owner had replaced the tall hopper with a short one, like on the Mini, and its height is now down to 18".  Also comes with new burrs.  $285 later, it's mine!  This should be quite an improvement on the Maestro I've been using for years.  I'm looking forward to seeing just how good espresso can be on the Silvia.

I had a Super Jolly before going to the Major.  You won't be disappointed!
You are going to be spoiled!  I love the speed of the commercial grinders.
So you are now going to be Paul Jolly with a Super Jolly!  It will become
part of the family!

Congrats and welcome to MOnG , Paul!
I don't know from "too big" ... The MSJ grinder will be just right. It will
do good things to your coffee beans.
I hope the feedback on your seller is is good. The price isn't so important-
it's in the ballpark. I'm glad it found a good home.
There has been some commentary on the appearance of the grounds from these
I thought it was some kind of Joke when it was said that a fuzzy appearance
is desirable for the coffee grounds. When the fuzz is detached from the
bean, it's called FINES. That's exactly what I don't want the bloody grinder
doing to my beans!
If you don't want fines, why would you want fuzzy? The consistency of salt
isn't fuzzy.
The weather around here does the same thing once in a while- it doesn't know
whether to be a rain storm, snow, hail or sleet.
We got Door #2!
I got this bag of Ethiopian Sidamo while I was still getting variable
results from my comical grinder. Since the Mazzer, the Sidamo is fabulous,
and flavors of all the coffees have Skyrocketed. I just wasn't getting these
interesting flavors before. Now I always do.
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!
'Tain't fuzzy, McGee
