    Do we know what this grinder is, and is it any good?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight


    Advertised on Gumtree as a quality Italian build, but says it is not branded. Household use only as a espresso grinder, for a sunbeam coffee machine. Apparently purchased in Sydney for 300ish a few years ago.
    I'm perhaps interested....

    Any opinions as to what it is, if its any good?
    Thank you all

    Yes Isomac Profesionale, not a bad unit for its price point.

    Plenty of reviews on here about them. No timer and messy with large grind retention.

    We used to supply them a few years ago but now there are better alternatives for not many more dollars.
    However it may still be a reasonable buy depending on price and what you intend to use it with.

    They are chasing $80 for it in Gumtree.
    I only have a breville 800es (for now). I'm sure it would be suitable for that, but perhaps I will get a nicer machine at some stage.

    Why look on G.mTr.. when you can look on here !
    There are some excellent (grinder) buys S/H in the marketplace forum.
    Invest in your future ...The machine can only be as good as the grinder its working with.
    The Mini Mzr I refer to will take you quite a way further in the right direction than were your are at present.
    A caring vendor who packs well and even with Trpt to Perth, this would be under the money.
