    Mystery grinder

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just bought a mystery grinder on ebay and was wondering if anyone here recognises the brand? The seller had no idea, and it is currently in transit so I cannot examine it in any detail.
    Would appreciate any info anyone might have.

    Yeah, it looks like an old Faema. I have the A6 and thats pretty close. Some minor differences in the hopper and the doser lid...

    Thanks Maheel,
    Looks like its missing the portafilter fork.
    Anyone know if these take a standard burr? There is no mention of this model on coffee parts. This grinder is going to do duty in the coffee shed along side the newly rebuilt Rancillio.

    Coffee parts sell the Faema 64mm burr an A/S6 takes. I replaced mine from there.
