Detailed Commentary

I bought this grinder based on the reviews on Coffeegeek, do I need a Mazzer Super Jolly, probably not, was it worth buying, definately. I could have paid $200 for a new adequate grinder that I would not have been happy with, but instead I paid a little more and got a used Mazzer.
This is a fantastic grnder, it is the first and last grinder I will ever need to buy, the quality of the grind beats most other grinders on the market, and it will last for ever. This is a huge grinder, when I picked it up from the seller I was astonished by its size, and weight, it is a quality product.
I have nothing to compare this grinder with which makes it difficult to review, Before buying this grinder I was using the grinders at stores I bought my coffee from, these were generally large BUNN burr coffee grinders, the difference between the two is like night and day, would I see the difference between the super jolly and the rocky, probably not, but the build quality shines through with the Mazzer. I have used this grinder for a couple of months now, and it still gives me a smile every morning when I start grinding coffee.

The only problem with a grinder of this size is where to put it, it won't fit under most counter tops even with  the mini bean hopper, so I dispensed with the hopper completely, I fill the throat of the grinder with beans every morning and then use my tamper to cover the throat hole while grinding, this stops the beans from jumping out of the throat while grinding, this has worked out to be the perfect solution.

Buying Experience

I paid 350 on Craigslist for my Mazzer, even though I may have been able to buy a cheaper one on Ebay, this grinder had only been used for a year and was hardly used, not a single scratch, it was so clean that I didn't need to clean it.

The best thing about the Super Jolly is the used market, I have seen older models on Ebay selling for $150 dollars, they maybe 10 years old and beaten up, but with new burrs they are as good as new and a way better deal than buying a new cheap grinder. Look for Brevetto, Astoria and other names for the Mazzer, that's where the bargins are to be had!!!

Three Month Followup

Its flawless,  rock solid, not a single problem.
