    gaggia mm

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just bought this for plunger/syphon @ work.

    Found that the on/off switch doesnt stay "on". You need to hold it down. Is this normal?

    Im also getting a huge grind variation on the coarsest setting....any tips or was this a rash decision?

    I used to own one of these and yes, you have to hold the On button in while grinding.

    I got variation in ground size on any setting. The "burrs" crush the bean instead of cutting. Dont expect much from it, but it should be OK for plunger.

    Unfortunately, Id say it was a rash decision. Even for plunger, it will not be very good since the dust it produces makes for a lot of bitterness.

    I modified mine by replacing the push on switch with a rocker switch which at least allowed me to let it grind in another room to escape the noise but I no longer use it at all.
