  • Presumed Sold FOR SALE (Melb + Post) Kyocera CM-45 CF grinder

    I bought this grinder in 2009 but it has been unused for quite a few years now. I washed the burrs in cafetto so you can see them clearly. You can see in the picture there is what looks like a fine crack in the inner burr, it has been like this since new, I don't believe it affects the grind.

    I bought this to pair with a handpresso but sadly I was never happy with the shots using this grinder. It grinds fine enough, and the grinds look consistent, but it just didn't have the taste asn body I could get using a vintage Zass. Now I use an OE Pharos and the results are great but of course it's ten times bigger and heavier.

    Consequently I do not recommend this grinder for espresso.
    It could however be good for other methods, I don't know I haven't tried.

    $50 delivered in an Auspost satchel.

    $40 pickup in Melbourne eastern suburbs but this might not be practical with our pandemic restrictions.
