  • !!!WITHDRAWN!!! - FS: Isomac Granmacinino & Krups 989


    I bought this Isomac Granmacinino grinder about 7 months ago and have just upgraded to an Hg One.

    So i can say that I have found the Isomac to be a very solid little grinder. It holds about 300g and is doserless, with a button under the chute that allows you to grind straight into the portafilter.

    it is compact, shiny & has shown no signs of failure. Very little plastic.
    It has been kept clean and well looked after. Our affair has been brief but loving!

    There is a crack on the base of the hopper that has been there since I've owned it. The crack has not increased in size nor , I believe, has it prevented the grinder from doing what it should.

    I'm in Melbourne, (east), and would prefer a local buyer. Happy to meet up closer to the city, but a pick up would of course be fine too. Asking $220.

    i also have a lovely old Krups 989. I bought it in 1997, and it has served beautifully until 2 years ago when the group seal perished. I've not been able to replace it, but suspect a pre millennium Pavoni seal may do the trick. Other than that, it shows no signs of slowing down.

    This can go to the buyer for $0. I'd just love to think the old girl was still in action as it was about the first thing I bought when I started working.

    I think this could be a nice start up package, (provided you can replace the seal). The grinder could serve you for years to come unless you , as I and many others have done , fall into the relentless grip of upgraditis!

    All the best.

                    This is a great first grinder for someone starting out; at that price especially given that a new replacement is worth more than twice the asking price.

                      A Snob has inadvertently alerted me to something which is probably misleading in my description. I bought the grinder 7 months from the first post ie probably 9 months now, but I got it 2nd hand. It's manufacture date is 2007.

                      so it's about 8 YEARS old.
                      I've had it since mid/ late last year.

                      naturally I can't say how much coffee's been through it, but it does still do its job very well.

                      sincere apologies for misleading anyone.
