I've been looking for a decent electric grinder in my price range for a while. There isn't much in the way of reviews for Faema grinders. Anyone recognize the one in the attached photo?
If so, any reviews?

Thanks!

I think the machine and grinder were sold as the Faema 'family' range.49mm burrs.A search for faema family grinder should bring up more info.

I own both of these "Faema Family" grinder and espresso makers
as well as the custom stand it sits on. I'm missing the cover to the
grinder on top and need to find a new one. The new versions of
the espresso maker haven't had a copper boiler for many years
so if this one is in great condition and has the copper boiler buy it.
The grinder is superb and has a very heavy burr.

Have owned and used this pair almost daily for twenty-five years!
They are now with my son, still going strong.
I bought a second espresso machine, used, as a back-up to my new machine.
I would highly recommend the grinder if the price is right, but
it would be a shame to break-up a set.

Hey Rick!

If your looking for a lid for your 'family' grinder,
give Faema in Toronto Ontario a phone call.
They have sold hundreds of these grinders, and still
service them.
They just may have what you need kicking around?

I didn't want to start a new thread for this question, so i'll just post it here.
Can anyone recognize this grinder? Any help would be useful... Thanks
