    Mazzer super jolly automatic (timer?) question

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    Ive been hunting for a Mazzer Super Jolly on the second hand market as a global financial crisis friendly upgrade to my old Lux. *The Lux has been great but I managed to break the hopper recently, and it was getting a little limiting with its steps. *It was one of those unfortunate events but a great excuse to upgrade *:)

    The Mazzer SJ will be the first step on my upgrade path to a better machine (a nice single group machine like a Vibiemme Super Lever eventually). *Im not against a Mini but the SJ appears to be more common on the second hand market, primarily from ex commercial use, and sells at a much greater discount.

    There seem to be two SJ configurations - a manual switch or an automatic / timer switch. *Im wondering if the automatic grinding can be disabled, or controlled to be home use friendly. *From my research the controls seemed to be either manual OR automatic but I couldnt find a clear answer (every site seems to have the same marketing blurb). *Essentially I dont really fancy my grinder automatically grinding to replenish the doser.

    Does anyone know about the automatic model and whether it is a non-issue for home use? *Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    My SJ is auto, unmodified. *It can basically operate the same as a manual. *the auto has 3 positions - off, on, and the third is a manual start position (which then springs back to the on position). When grinded enough switch it off, and the auto part will never kick in. *I would have no hesitation getting an auto for home if I were you. *I have a manual mini, and the auto SJ is just as easy.

    yeah good luck trying to find one. I looked for a long time for one second hand (most were pretty worn out or old shape), then eventually gave up and got one new. but sometimes you can ge lucky - got my mini for $25!!!

    Try sponsor Omaras.
    They regularly get in 2nd hand grinders and espresso machines.
