  • Non-branded 64MM Grinder from China - on par with Mazzer, Compak, Caedo, Macap??

    Hi all,

    I just found this grinder (brand new) from one of China sourcing websites. It's being sold at $256 USD but there'll be freight/tax costs. Specifications:



    Professional coffe grinder with aluminum body


    Power supply: 220V-240V 50Hz / 60Hz

    Technical Specification
    Power: 350W Gross Weight: 15kg ü Weight: 15Kg
    Dimension: Height 560mm / Width 210mm / Depth 330mm ü Assembled Height:
    Bean Hopper capacity: 1.2kg. ü Assembled Width:
    Grinding capacity: 6-9kg / hour ü Assembled Length:
    Dispenser capacity: 250gr. (powder coffee) ü Grinding stones diameter: 64mm (flat type)
    Dispensing capacity: 5-10gr / cup ü Bean Hopper capacity: 1.2Kg.
    MOQ:50PCS ü Grinding capacity: 6-9Kg/hour


    ü Dispenser capacity: 250gr. (powder coffee)
    Knife diameter:64mm ü Dispensing capacity: 5-10gr/cup
    Features: ü Electric Power: 350watt.
    All Aluminum alloy casted dispenser, right/left hand handle.
    Extra wide dosing capability from as low as 5gr to 10+gr per dose. Certifications:
    Specially hardened tooling steel grindstones ü ETL.,CE,GS
    Micro adjust table for accurate grinding ü NSF Sanitation listed
    3 optional colors: Black, Red and Silver Packing information:
    3 optional models: Carton Height:650mm
    Manual (S): On-Off control Carton Width:280mm
    Carton Length:390mm
    Weight:15kg


    The FOB price is about $256 usd but there'll be another 70-110 shipping (via boat - taking about 1 month). So it's actually about $356 + import tax.

    Do you think it'll perform as good as the threshold standards like Mazzer SuperJolly, Caedo E6, Compak K6 ?

    Actually, I plan to buy these 3 'Pre-owned' (Mazzer SuperJolly, Caedo E6, Compak K6) because I want 1 for hot coffee, 1 for ice coffee, and 1 for Decaf coffee.

    No doubt a case of "pays yer money, takes yer chance".

      Or a case of I'll join up and see if I can sell my wares with a little shill advertising?

        With stones and knives, it might be as fast as the Mazzer mini?

          I considered getting one of these a few months ago just to see what it's actually like. Still might get one.

          If I were you, I wouldn't buy one and then need to rely on it. You can just buy a used brand name grinder for around that price here and know that you'll have a good product.

            I was given a Chinese made Mazzer Major knock off about 5 years ago to test drive and it's still used daily in my roastery. It grinds considerably faster than the genuine Mazzer we use at the winery and it's grind consistency and quality is easily on par. Never missed a beat in 5 years either... and the price was right :-)

            Bottom line... it's a very solidly built machine with a quality burr set (completely interchangeable with real Mazzer parts)and a very cool running and strong motor and at that price you can afford to find out if it works for you as well

            Cheers and good luck

              Also from Aliexpress / Alibaba.com ???

              Yes, I think buying a branded / 'pre-owned' is somewhat better.....

                Do you get your money back if it starts a house fire?

                  I have no idea how it came into the country... was sent to me by the Australian distributor

                    That's the problem, private imports of electrical good often do not meet the required import and electrical safety laws.

                    Would be very difficult to get a resolution from China, or sympathy from the local government, if something were to happen I think.

                      The last grinder fire I heard of was a Macap and, presumably, not made in China.

                      And... what isn't made in China nowadays? If you're really worried about Chinese workmanship starting fires in your home you may as well throw away your mobile phones, laptops, tablets, desktops, tvs and applicances while you're at it

                        ... and Segway hover boards, extension leads, almost everything electrical from Bunnings and, well, there's always a Hario Skerton and V60 pour over. They haven't caught on fire yet.

                          You're obviously not grinding quickly enough then :-P

                            ... but they're Japanese. Chinese versions (flammable?) may be available soon.

                              I'll hook it up to my cordless drill and see if I can start a fire; of course, the cordless drill is Chinese so this experiment could be flawed from the outset.
