    Hopper mod

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

    Had a idea yesterday while wondering around Bunnings and picked up a Vinidex pvc 50mm flapper and a 50 to 40mm fitting that makes up my single dose hopper, You have to grind or sand down the 40mm end for a snug fit and a quick spray with flat black paint and your done.

    Cheers Gra..

    Beautiful design Gra

    Looks a little small in comparison to the grinder (ergonomically speaking)
    Still a good design idea on your part

    Like the Coffee Snobs Framed Print on the wall
    You may need to update it to the new van style

    Looks cool, Gra. It doesnt scream "Im a bloody big grinder standing in a kitchen" any more, though Im guessing youll have a lot of people asking what it is. Upright benchtop vacuum cleaner comes to mind. :D
