Hello everyone. I picked up a free grinder off of craigslist a few days ago, and I've had no luck in identifying it. I've used the search function, as well as google, as best I can. Apologies if I missed something. My best guess is that It's a rebadged, or licensed product. The brand is Northstar, and the model is an MC-20. I can measure and take photos of the Burr set a bit later. they're flat burrs, and a bit smaller than the burr set on my Rossi rr-45.

Any ideas? Regardless, you can't go wrong with free :)


*edit for spelling*

I couldn't figure out how to attach multiple photos. This is my shot of the label on the bottom

Looks like a Cunill Columbia espresso grinder

I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Yes, That's almost identical to the machine I have. I think my Rossi is better, though. I'll probably clean it up and gift it to a friend. Thanks!!

I've owned a number of Cunills over the years, and I like how snug everything stays together (particularly the lack of slop in the upper burr/adjustment). If I recall correctly, the RR45 upper burr can always wiggle a bit unless you teflon tape the threads.

I Decided to keep the Rossi on three pro's. The 63mm burrs were not only larger and sturdier, but in better condition. The second was the cast metal body of the Rossi. It just seems a bit better made.Lastly the Rossi has its hopper and doser cover with it. The Cunill is just the grinder body.

I was planning to put the teflon tape on the top burrr.

It seems crazy to me to design something like a threading top burr, which is essentially a stepless fine adjustment, then do something to limit it like adding the setpin to lock it every 1/4 inch.

I'm thinking about ways to have it lock without the need for the pin. Teflon tape alone might be enough I think.
