    Fiorenzato F71ek Conical grinder (Melbourne)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Due to some changes in circumstances I need to get rid of some of my bigger coffee gear. First on the chopping block is my fiorenzato grinder.

    Massive 71mm conical burrs grinds 18g for espresso in around 4.5s. It has seen better days, I assume it started life as a cafe grinder and since then has moved around the country with me being mishandled by at least 3 removalists. As such the fan cover is broken and the grinder body is pretty well scratched. However it still runs a treat.

    Comes with a small hopper from a baratza and super jolly catch tray which both fit like they came like this out of the factory.

    Difficult to single dose with and retention isn't great, but if you want robur performance on a super jolly budget, this is the grinder for you.

    Burrs were replaced in February 2017, at a guess I've probably put 100kg through since then.

    Please note that this thing is a monster, ~430mm without the hopper and 550mm with it attached.

    $400 Pick up in Preston

    Will throw in a sunbeam knock box if the buyer wants it.

    Wow!

    The equivalent of a Robur-E for $400.
    Great opportunity for someone...

    It is a great grinder but would like any potential buyer to keep in mind that it is cosmetically a bit on the rough side.

    Yeah, cosmetics can be important in some settings but my tongue doesn't have eyes, and I miss my f71ek every week.
