Anyone have experience with fetco grinders?  This loos like a larger commercial grinder and I would like to bid on it but a little concerned if it will work.  Not too much info on the auction site.


Fetco Coffee Grinder, Model GR-2.3, 120-Volt, No Power Cord, Works

There is also this coffee pot that looks good but not sure what does everyone think?  

Curtis Coffee Maker Gemini System Model 6121L with (2) Stainless Catering Style Pots


I know these are commercial systems but I'm looking it them to put in with my small nano brewery, and I want to have good coffee and espresso.  A lot of coffee shops repo products go up for auction I just want to buy good stuff and I know fetco and Curtis cost a lot new but not sure on their actual performance and value.

Scott, this is the second thread that you have started today asking about this grinder.  Did you not like the answer we gave you the first time?

"Fetch grinder ?"

I did a Google search and gave you an honest opinion.  What do you want to hear?  I guess you ask a question enough times and you will get the answer you want.

Whoaaaaaa........ Sorry.  I was told several times in replays that I was in the espresso grinder forum so I simply reported in the proper section, since I didn't notice I was in the espresso section.

All you said was its a bulk grinder etc.....I was wondering if anyone had experience using this grinder not just theory.

And I am still waiting for a response about the coffee maker.

If it said fetch grinder is my worthless iPad spell checker I meant fetco.

This is a BBS not a chat room so sometimes it takes a while to get answers and it has only been one day. I answered you on your other thread as to quality of the brew equipment.

If you are looking for a general use/dirp grinder, likely the Fetco will be OK as it is designed as a drip grinder, if you are looking for espresso, it will not be a good choice.

A link to the auction or add you are asking about goes a long way to getting us to help you. Likely most here would not even think about purchase or bid. YMMV.

You might want to ask why the cord has been cut off, I have bought lots of used commercial coffee gear and I have never had any piece that had a cut cord.

Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!
