    Delonghi Grinder

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all

    Just wondering if any one has tried the top of the range delonghi grinder the one with the concial burr motor inside.

    I currently have a breville burr grinder but I find it not grinding fine enough to give a good crema.

    Re: Delonghi Grinder

    I recently bought a Delonghi KG 100.
    If that is the one you are looking at, I reckon it is pretty good for home use. Multiple grind settings, timer, clear hopper, simple square receptacle (the Gaggia grider I have has a weird shaped receptacle that gets very messy. One of the reasons I changed).
    I started with a Breville (after the spice grinder stage) and found it could not grind fine enough. No such issues with the Gaggia or the Delonghi.

    I owned one of these Delonghis before. Even after tweaking it to the finest range, I still could not get it to grind fine enough for my Gaggia Classic. I had to resort to packing the portafilter and tamping it as hard as I could.

    Other than that, I thought it was pretty good, easy to clean the burrs.

    For that sort of money, you might be better off looking for a MDF grinder on e-bay. Quite a few have been sold over the past couple of months (some for under $200). I purchased one for my parents - they are very happy with it (and Im quite impressed as well). The MDF and rocky are generally seen as equals with respect to grind capability (MDF is mostly plastic though).

    I know Richard and Raelene *(CoffeeSnobs) use the Rocky and I think Ed does too.
    Yep, I have a Rocky too. Fantastic unit....although, I have entertained ideas of upgrading to a used Mazzer Jolly....Im worried it would look a little silly next to the Silvia though (the Jolly is HUGE!).

    ;)
