First of all ... Wow! Those are beautiful photos - are you a professional photographer?  It looks like a magazine layout.  And I sure wish my place looked so nice - my kitchen looks like a mad scientist workshop.

That grinder looks like it is based on the Fiorenzato T80 - it looks exactly like my old grinder except for that cool hopper and the doserless funnel (and the beautiful setting).  

My grinder has the doser --- and while the Fiorenzato doser is so much quieter and cleaner than the mazzer dosers, I've always wondered about going doserless.  I wonder if that funnel is available separately (and at a reasonable cost - unlike the Mazzer funnel).

Thank you very much. Yes, i am a Wedding photographer, but this photos are Not so professionell. I made it on the fly. :-)
You don't know the Quamar grinder? It is great. Like a Mazzer, but cheaper. In the newest version you can program buttons and so on.

You can see the grinder on my last running video (with the old hopper):

I'm pretty sure the Quamar must have bought the rights to the Fiorenzato T-80 because that grinder looks like the identical grinder but modernized.  So - yes I'm familiar with the grinder, and how good it is (I have the original T-80) but I wasn't familiar with the Quamar version of it.   Mine looks exactly like the Quamar M-80 with the doser.  

Fiorenzato (so I'm told) used to make grinders under many other brand names and weren't all that well known under their own name.

I disagree .The quamar is a nice grinder but a Mazzer Super Jolly is better.My opinion of course.I've had both.
