    Macap grinder

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi fellow coffee snobs,

    I have a Macap grinder Mod. number R8A 1992. It has a beautiful retro inspired appearance . The bean holder is glass and made to appear hand blown . Does anyone have anymore information about this model.

    Cheers

    Hi & welcome
    I believe the glass hand blown bean hopper is an after market product

    It would be nice to see a photo of it ;)

    Thanks for the reply. Yes a photo will describe it best. I will post it in the next couple of days. One thing I will add is that it looks great beside an E61.

    Yep, sure is beautiful.... 8-)

    Would be a shame to actually use it though ;)

    I reduced the size of the image for you "longmac100", it was rather large. In general, if you can keep images down to a size of 600x800 pixels itll help people who may have a limited bandwidth connection.

    All the best,
    Mal.

    Im assuming the base is super heavy so the top heaviness of the glass wouldnt matter. Im sure in my kitchen, Id break it for sure.
