Topic: Starbucks Burr Grinder (4 msgs / 100 lines)
1) From: Larry Williams
Want to get rid of the blade grinder.  Anyone have the SB Burr grinder?  
Comments?  I know there is other grinders that are better, but the SB is 
small and I can get a discount.
Thanks
Larry

Hi Larry
I bought a SB Burr grinder 1998 or 99 and have used it ever since.  I like 
it, but do not have any other grinder experience to compare it to..... 
except the little salton whirley blade thingy my wife got for me.
The only trouble I had with the SB Burr grinder when it tried to grind a 
rock that was the exact size and color of the beans I was trying to grind. 
That was years ago and I have used it most every day since.

Every day is the right day to dump your whimpy whirley gig grinder...

Pardon my Dummheit = could be 'rong again, but the *$ burr grinders looke=
d
quite the same as the Bodum Antigua grinders. I remember some other grinder
with the same burrs
The burrs are all interchangeable with Solis Maestro, Maestro Plus from my
experience. The Solis Maestros have an added groove and split ring in the
lower OD of the upper burr. It may or may not do anything on Solis. Bodums
don't have it at all. I disremember the *$ thingies.
The burrs couldn't fit anything but a Solis or rebadged derivative matchine=
.
They're unlikely to build a whole different gearmotor to drive the same
burrs in a grinder they build for somebody else. Wouldn't be prudent.
Ford built the same basic engine in 332, 352, 361, 390, 406, 427 and 428
cubic inch displacements. Many were produced in several versions, from truc=
k
duty to Daytona- only racing trim. (My 406 was a Daytona homologation that
saw 12 hrs in a Chris- Craft speed boat before Mum got a thrill on grocery
trips in the family sedan!)
And I thought $0.43/gal for 115/145 avgas at the FBO was expensive!
"Yes, this thing flies- look at the engine. OK, OK- I'll pay the tax."
By the whey- Discarding the weed whacker coffee mills means you have no use
for a spice grinder or cracking black pepper that you will use directly-
fabulous! or keep a little in a baby food jar.
Add some incredible texture to bread loaves by substituting a couple of oz.
of cracked hard red winter wheat in your bread recipes. Play with the
recipes- don't pitch those spice grinders.
