    Buying a grinder in Melbourne

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Although a first timer, I have read a lot of posts about grinders and just about feel ready to part with some hard earned.

    Keen to actually see and feel some of the sub-$500 grinders in action.

    Of the site sponsors, can any CSers suggest which one/s can provide a weekend demo in Melbourne?

    I have this suspect for a couple of weeks- for review and testing.

    It will reside in my home until 08 August and then go to the showroom for a 1 week residency.

    Melbourne (or visiting) CSers are welcome to pop in for a shot and a play at either venue- by appointment.

    We will also throw the showroom doors open between 11am and 1pm on Saturday 09 August for those who would like to pop in..

    Had to laugh - exact same thing happened to me yesterday as well! *;D *Intended to buy the Compak K3T, but was happily delivered a Mazzer Mini. *Absolutely no regrets and cant envisage Ill ever need to upgrade the Mazzer. *

    Chris is such a fantastic person to deal with - no pressure, so informative and patient for you to come to the right decision for yourself. ;)

    Great choice meanbeanz!
