    Sunbeam emo480 - my experience

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I purchased an EMO4980 in dec of last year. by 5th of jan it had stopped working - microswitch dead or something.

    Got a brand new replacement from the shop which gave up the ghost this weekend just gone. Going to try for another replacement which I will sell as I dont want to have to put up with the unreliability.

    In terms of usage - 4-5 double shot extractions per day.

    Frustrated but also pretty happy cos I have convinced the wife (well at least I think I have) that I need to spend some reasonable dollars on a better class of machine. All going well ill have a mazzer mini within a few days.

    The Sunbeam has a great reputation as a budget grinder so you must have just been unlucky......

    The Mazzer is in a different league - Good luck with the upgrade *;D

    Had my mazzer mini for 5 days now - overall huge improvement over the sunbeam.

    Getting used to the doser - this has been the challenge.

    Thinking about the sweeper mod and also removing the finger guard as its a little obtrusive.
