    Ceado E6P Electronic Dosing Grinder

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    There seems little information on Ceado grinders on this site and yet USA sites like "Whole latte Love" rave about them. I found one Australian supplier and there maybe more but they seem like a good value, solid high end doserless grinder comparable to Macap M4D and cheaper than the Rocket Fausto, ECMs and Profitec's high end grinders.

    Anyone got one of these? Any sponsors sell them? Any opinions?

    I seem to remember some chat about Ceado Grinders many years ago and from all accounts they are regarded very highly and of excellent build quality. I guess the only thing that might make you think twice about owning one, would be whether spares can be obtained easily and for a reasonable price. Might be worth checking with the Aussie Importer to see what they have to say...

    I personally love the look of the Ceado E37S, and would probably buy one in a heartbeat if it wasn't for the sole Aussie distributor having such a poor reputation. I am anxiously awaiting one of our site sponsors to jump on the Ceado bandwagon and start supplying, although it will most likely not happen any time soon unfortunately. Seems like a great piece of kit.

    Bang for buck is excellent on these. Widely seen and praised overseas but as you say one supplier is concerning and a possible deal breaker

    Discussed before, the one supplier isn't here and is a retailer operating from Italy. The retailer gets pretty poor reviews https://www.productreview.com.au/p/n...fe-italia.html a solid 1.9 out of 5.

    Quote from their website:

    Please note: Sometimes when we run out of stock in Australia, we have to ship some of our products directly from our main warehouse in Milano. You will not be charged for any extra shipping cost for that. It is may possible that you will get an international transaction fees debited by your bank in this rare occasion”

    Not worth the risk imho

    An ASIC search will provide the relevant information to any who want it.

    There is no such company registered in Australia nor do they have an ABN. They do not pay tax, nor GST and there is no stock in Australia.

    Your warranty and negligible customer support reside in Italy. Purchase at your own risk as the Australian looking website is a complete scam.

    This is an Italian box seller operation with many disgruntled purchasers worldwide.

    Further from Caffeinator's comments, plenty of reports of people getting asked for GST on the way in (as you would expect with an item of that value).

    What a huge disappointment as I really like the way the bur system works and their adjustments compared to the traditional method . I think the Eureka Atom works in a similar way. No gummed up threads and your dial-in setting remains after disassembling and cleaning. I also like the look of them.

    It was this video that got me interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SauH...V8s3gTdElXRSh2

    Maybe try a Eureka Atom, they get good reviews, are very low in sound output and plenty of reputable vendors who supply and support on this forum.

    Yep you're probably right but I am disappointed. I've had 4 grinders over the years including the Macap M4D which is a great grinder but I was looking for a change from the traditional way to adjust and clean burs. I also like hands free dosing and minimal noise which I know the Atom is well known.

    This very informative video compares them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4pWp60adws

    I had watched that video before when looking for an Atom but rewatching brought a couple of thoughts to mind as I paid little attention to the Ceado (knowing it wasn't available locally). The adjustment mechanism is nice on the Ceado, the extra fineness would be useful. Also he didn't mention the pause capability on the Atom, where you can say if grinding for 9 seconds, press the button to pause when 3 seconds are remaining, give the portafilter a couple of taps to settle, then grind the remaining. Very useful. Very minor point but when discussing visibility he didn't mention the light on the Atom, helps if used under cupboards on early mornings.

    I see this is a bit of an old thread but I'll breathe some life into it again.

    I have been using a low level DeLonghi grinder and espresso machine for three years, and have decided upgrade my game.

    I have decided to go for the Ceado E6P, it seems to get some great reviews, and in the US forums is a bit of a classic go-to grinder

    https://youtu.be/Mm1TFjBK8Cc?t=306

    Has anyone on here have some long term experience with this unit? I will pick it up today.

    Cheers

    I bought the E5p. Same as the E6p without the electronics. Its a solid grinder but I havent owned another grinder in its class so i have nothing to compare it to.

    I have no regrets buying this grinder. Easy to use and easy to maintain. Consistent grounds everytime. Never disappointing

    Well Iíve had the E6P V2 for two days and so far I love it. Very consistent, quiet, excellent build quality, programmable, and stepless.

    Would recommend.

    Who is selling Ceado in Australia?

    [Edit]
    Getting blind.
    Found it above...

    What about direct import from Italy?

    Itís cheaper to buy it in Australia than here in Vienna, which is strange since the factory is only an 8 hr drive away

    Bain, you are probably reading this on a phone so missing some of these posts and other threads on Ceado. They aren't actually available in Australia, they come up in a search on the au website of an Italian box seller who ships from Italy with the gst implications that has. I am sure they would happily ship to you in Vienna.

    Thanks for the clarification. Yes that sounds annoying,

    I managed to buy one in store in the end.

    I though Vienna is the capital of Australia.
    Oh wait...

    Where are you located Sleeprequired, you haven't listed it? Bain is located in Vienna if that is handy to you.

    Probably not convenient then as Bain in post 18 above and a few others around mentioned he was in Vienna. He hasn't been here since May, so you may not get an answer from him (you can teĺ when someone was last here by clicking on their name)

    sorry yes I stopped visiting this site. There was a local dealer in the 20th district, operated out of a cafe. I've since sold the machine and now live in Perth. I had it for several months and it is such a beautiful unit. I wanted to bring it back home to Australia but it doesn't have the Australian elecrical compliance tick. It has the European CE mark or course, but still, wouldn't want to have to deal with an insurance claim. Again, really a beautiful machine, so quiet too.

    Prior to buying my Niche Zero I sent a PM to all Coffeesnob site sponsors asking if they were considering offering the Ceados for sale. No responses at all. So I read between the lines and bought a Niche. Pity, as I love the look and function of the E37SD and would have been willing to place an order and wait.

    Does anyone else know of any movement regarding legit Aus importers/distributors for Ceado?

    It is a shame that the market here is so small even a Ceado distributor can't be found. They are excellent grinders too no doubt about it.

    Even with Eureka grinders no one has stocked the Specialilta 75 here which is weird.

    An isolated market of not much importance it seems.

    Yes, definitely a shame as their grinders look brilliant (IMO, at least).

    Most of the other manufacturers offer models suited to our market, so why not Ceado? They offer a wide price range of models, so you would think it easy for them to justify the efforts to sell them here. If they're offered in the NZ market I can't see any reason why not Aus. I can only assume Ceado in Italy are happy with the current "importer" arrangement. I wonder if they realise how many sales this is costing them?

    Anyway, I'v blissfully happy with my Niche Zero - it has surprised me and exceeded my expectations, so Ceado's loss I guess.
