Posted Fri Mar 21, 2014, 10:15am Subject: Mazzer Super Jolly vs Rio Normale
I was over at a friends house last night, and he has a Rio Normale grinder he is thinking of selling. It is obviously a rebadged Super Jolly from the looks of it - but it seems bigger / heavier than an SJ?
I did some searching on the forums here and on HB, and although I found information, I wanted to re-pose the question here for anyone that has experience or knows about the two grinders. There is not a plethora of information on the comparison.
I also see WLL carries the Normale: Rio Normale at WLL - why is it $400 more than a Super Jolly?
It appears the Normale is taller at 29" according to WLL specs, and has a 500 watt motor vs a 350 watt motor for the Mazzer SJ.... but apparently they weigh the same? Is the Normale a higher end commercial version of the SJ?
As stated "did some searching on the forums here and on HB, and although I found information, I wanted to re-pose the question here for anyone that has experience or knows about the two grinders. There is not a plethora of information on the comparison."
Yes, I saw the thread. If information already exists does that mean we don't need to ever visit the topic again? :-) Time to shut down the boards then...
... seriously, sure there is info, just looking anything new, or other people have to say! There is always new information, someone with different insight.... plus, it is not like this topic has been "beaten to death" there is not a lot of information out there.
