    They look OK Fp...

    I guess youll know for certain once you have it working on the bench in your kitchen. If the burr-plates are worn out Im not sure where youre likely to get replacements though.... :-/

    its supposedly only 6 months old, will ask if hes got receipt should still be under warranty, being commercial i expect it to last longer than domestic grinder

    Grinders dont break as a rule... Burrs get blunt as per the amount / type of beans that are run through it..

    Some where between 200 and 400 kg a set

    So usually between 3 months and a year for a commercial and new burrs required...
    Rule of thumb... Buy second hand... New Burrs.

    The Verona and La Venezia are designed for the professionals who need productive coffee grinders but also know the true value of a long lasting, problem free automatic coffee grinder. Both have stainless steel bodies with specially hardened grinder blades that get the best out of your coffee.

    Verona 352W, 1300rpm, 1.80Amps Thermal protected motor 60 mm grinding blades 1Kg bean hopper, Doser 600gr H:610mm, L:355mm, W210mm




    This is it, where would i get burrs , is it a rebadged more popular model ?

    Re: Verona Express Coffee Grinder

    Yep its a Cunill, I had one exactly the same. Coffeeparts I think have burrs for them. The motor is held onto the plastic chassis with three screws and on mine one of those had loosened, allowing one side of the motor to drop and thus the burrs werent parallel. I didnt end up needing the burrs because the person I bought it from wanted it back but theyre available if you need them.

    For $182 I think its a pretty good buy, compared to a Sunbeam EM0480 for about the same price. And compared to pre-ground well youll notice the difference FP! ;)

    Re: Verona Express Coffee Grinder

    i am grinding by hand , blender and motar and pessel, so it very random, but still taste good, expect it to taste lot better when i can grind fine and learn how to tamp. need to get tamper next.

    thanks all again for advice, think it best to spend more on 2nd hand commercial grade gear than same on cheap domestic gear which you will upgrade from later, this way should same a lot of money.

    Not a rebadged Cunill. It is a Cunill, and the model is Verona whatever....

    An extremely good buy for your intended use.

    Forget academic discussion about whether to replace grinding plates or not.

    Use it and see. It will "tell you" if it needs new plates.

    Better for you to spend time asking how to & then dial it in properly for your beans & machine, after which you will work out of it needs new plates or not. If you cant tell and the coffee is great, forget about the plates.

    Re: Verona Express Coffee Grinder

    Have the grinder, it works brilliantly, not using the hopper its too large,
    still adjusting the grind, did get a lovely black with 5 mm of crema ontop using my gaggia carezza

    first attempt was too fine, got no water flow so backed it off 15 steps, has about 3 or 4 full revolutions of adjustment with 60 steps per revolution

    very impressed with the grind, from fine powder like drinking chocolate to what looks like coarse sawdust, (just doing my fine tune, not total range) only thing i can complain of is there are no numbering of the steps, there is 12 main ridges on adjustment wheel (5 steps per ridge) which i have numbered so have a reference, very easy to adjust then forget if you have adjusted or not or by how much, now with numbers will be lot easier.

    It is a Cunill Space model, as marked underneath on manufactures specs plate, but front chrome badge is Verona Expres by Casanti Enterprises

    Cassaniti puts their name on everything. They are the Australian importer of Cunill.
