Topic: Question on Fiorenzato Mestre grinder - RE: my (2 msgs / 81 lines)
1) From: Greg Hollrigel
Kevin:
How do you like the Fiorenzato Mestre grinder?  Is it a solid espresso
grinder?  Any regrets in your purchase?
Everyone - have any of you heard of this grinder?  Is it comparable to the
Super Jolly that I see highly touted, or the Vario?  How about replacement
parts?  Can you just use Super Jolly burrs?
I have an opportunity to get one that is not too old for a few hundred.
Just wondering if it's a good investment from the collective group here.
Currently, I'm using a Zass hand grinder.
Thanks,
Greg

It's the best grinder I've tried but that really isn't saying much.
It's a tank, not as eye pleasing as some, but it definitely improved my
espresso making and I think would make you life easier if you are coming
from a hand grinder.
It does leave a lot of ground coffee inside. So if you are not espress'ing
every day that can effect your cup in a bad way. At my house we have several
a day between my wife and me and sometimes the teens are around long enough
to get one.
I tried contacting a couple of shops about burrs and they had no idea about
the Mestre because they are old. On a hunch I ordered the 63mm burrs and it
was them exactly. It was about $40 shipped and there was a noticeable
difference in improved shots so I had waited too long.
