    Which burr set for Cunill Tranquilo?

    Hi All,


    Has anyone replaced the burrs in a Tranquilo recently? I contacted one of the site sponsors but they werent sure.

    I wont get a chance to pull it apart and measure until next week so I was hoping someone could save me some time and effort.

    Thanks,
    Paul.

    Hello Paul,

    if your grinder was purchased new and you are a domestic user it is unlikely the grinding plates would need replacing any time soon due to low volume use.

    Yes the plates can be replaced if you wish, order from your retailer or Cunil agent.

    You made reference to "measuring"...if you are talking measuring the plates for wear I dont know anyone that does that and you would need to have a new set of plates to measure for comparison, and then someone would need to be able to tell you what measurement constitutes a "worn" condition.

    Generally, you would replace because you know a certain number of kilos have been put through (say 400 ish) or, because you can tell from the delivered grinds / the way they behave in brewing / the quality of the brew.....that they have had it.

    If your coffees are good, thats all you need to know.....dont fix it if it aint broke!

    Hi Attilio,

    Thanks for the reply. I bought the grinder 6 or 7 years ago so it has done a bit of work. Id guess that, based on our average use, it would have had around 150-200 kg through it in that time.

    Quite a few posts here suggest that the edges of the burrs should be somewhat sharpish and mine are quite blunt.

    Ive noticed lately that, even with more than my usual care with distribution and tamping, Im getting quite different results from one shot to the next.

    What I meant by "measuring", *is that the site sponsor I contacted carries a couple of different sets of Cunill burrs and suggested I measure the diameters, number of holes etc to try to identify which set was the correct one.

    Cheers,
    Paul.
