This looks a lot like a Super Jolly to me.. the price is right at 475 the way the market seems to be going..
I wonder if this Spanish brand will start to get more consideration the way prices seem to be going.. I have never really heard of them until I saw the Green Club ME 1-Group in a restaurant.. It sure is a good looking machine.

Interesting - it sure has some similar features (cast aluminum, 64mm burrs, weight approx. the same) and body shape. I wouldn't be surprised if it's another rebadged Mazzer and if it is, that's a great price.
Edit - I noticed that the picture at 1st-Line seems to be the only picture I could find on that grinder. It might be easier to tell if there were more pictures, but it's either a knockoff (not very likely I would say) or a rebadged SJ with some different parts (doser, doser handle, adjustment collar, etc.). EPNW also sells this grinder.

If you search via Yahoo or Google you can find it even cheaper but I don't know how reputable some of those vendors are. I know what you mean...I'm tempted myself. I keep telling myself that I don't need another grinder but I want one lol.

I couldn't find out how much shipping is at that place. This grinder is really getting me interested but as much as I tried, I couldn't find one picture of it that's not the one shown at the vendor sites. Maybe it's still pretty new?

My guess is that they are not made by mazzer Italy(but not sure). I have several 2007 Majors and the body style didn't change on them or Jolly. This is a much different body and doser found this in the co. About Us but not sure this pertains to the grinder or just their espresso machines. OUR MACHINES We have commissioned one of Italy's oldest and most capable manufacturers to produce a line of machines to fit the specific needs of today's USA market. In a 100,000 sq. ft. facility near Milan, a group of 120 skilled engineers and technicians are making sure that each Laranzato machine is built to strict UL and NSF-4 requirements. No machine leaves the factory before it is subjected to a real-life test.

After looking at the Laranzato a little more, it does have a different body shape in the back where it curves outward at the bottom. At first glance it looks like a Super Jolly in some ways, but maybe it's just a look alike. Has some nice features, though.
