  • What is this grinder called?

    I got this when it was chucked out at the uni I work at. I think it was from the old "big caf" (short for cafeteria, no way its called a cafe...god that place was horrible). There is also a commercial coffee machine up there, but I dont think I am getting that...

    You will notice the doser is broken, the top ring bit and the perpex beaker, but the mechanism is fine, oh and the handle for the tamper is off. Thats why I assume it was turfed in the first place..???

    Otherwise it works fine

    I am sourcing parts but would be interested to know whats its called...oh and to show off.

    oh and what do these sort of things go for $$$ wise?

    It took Sooooooooo long to get all the old crud out but its now nice and clean (no i didnt soak the burrs)... just used it to grind my first roast and just caught it as it came spitting out...there might have been some vacuuming afterward

    cheers

    Sorry cant help need to see more pictures
    Look for a label somewhere

    If you remove the broken doser
    You can convert it to a doserless model dont think it would be that hard

        hmm Anfim you say...ill look in to it

        There is no branding or serial number anywhere that I have found... I have looked under and in... even took a sticker (of a coffee company...crivelli) off to see if it was under there...nope

        I have got one of the guys at crivelli looking for parts...might be able to shed some light???

        Edit: Just had a look around at pics, the doser appears the same as you say, but cant seem to find one on the same body...????

        not much more to show in the pic really

        cheers

          At least the doser does

                Doser Is definitely an Anfim and the dosing fork looks like the one that Anfim use. But the body isnt one of grinders currently being manufactured.

                  Oh it grinds very well, everything save the doser seems in good order. It would probably be about 12-15 yo something of that ilk...

                  I shall email Anfim and ask them...cheers all

                      They still dont give us a model name/number

                      You can buy another doser or convert it to doser-less
                      If they fit upgrade the grinding blades to the new titanium ones they use on the Super Lusso

                        hmm indeed I may seek there help again in getting a bit more than Just a "very very old". The burrs seem really quite nice for thier supposed age. ... I have indeed thought about a doserless conversion. but only if I have to now I think. It was what I had planned to do, and it would suit need better. As it does have quite the footprint for a domestic kitchen. But I have become anamoured with the doser...
