    Hermes Armellin (?) grinder?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi folks,

    I picked up this grinder a while back, and was wondering if anyone had any knowledge of it at all - google is not so flash on equipment beyond a certain age - it seems it may have been produced by a now-defunct Swiss company. I'm hoping it is a re-badge of something or other so that parts may be available somehow...

    Seems to do a reasonable job paired with my equally cheap and run down Faema due

    Any ideas anyone?

    Open her up! Looks pretty cool and Also quite big. How long does it take to grind?

    The only comparison I have for grinding speed is my old Rancilio Kathy/Lucy which effectively is an old Rocky grinder as I understand it - and it is a lot faster than that, maybe takes somewhere around 5-7 seconds?

    It is both large and heavy.

    edit: for a double that is. and it dispenses immediately then grinds briefly every time, so must have a little chamber in there for ground coffee.

    Dear,

    I'm Axel Armellin from coffee machine. My grandfather made this brand in Switzerland. If you have questions about this grinder ask me.

    I'm currently in Switzerland. Where are you? You still have the machine?

    Best regards

    So it is an "auto dose" machine , that fills the PF and then grinds to refill the doser section.?.. hence, you will always have grinds sitting in the dose chamber until you are ready to brew.
    Ideal for a commercial cafe, but not good for occasional domestic use .

    Hi Axel,

    Sorry I have not been on this forum for a long time, and just saw your message today.
    I bought the grinder on ebay from a guy named Steve in Melbourne, Australia in 2012 - I'm now in New Zealand and brought the machine over with me. I can send you his ebay details if you want to see if he has any more information.
    I would still love to see a manual if you know of one, or even just to know the specifications of the burrs so I can replace them - still using it for my coffee today, great machine!
    I'll send you an email too.
    Cheers,
    Ben
