Subject: La Pavoni Jolly Dosato
 

I have replaced my La Pavoni Jolly Grinder and La Pavoni Eurobar with an Izzo Alex Duetto II and a MAzzer mini (and haven't looked back)

However on holiday I like to take my old friends Pavoni. However I really hate the doser and would like to convert to doserless.

Is there a replacement part that can take the place of the doser so the grind does not flyout all over the place?

Would love to hear your thoughts. Many thanks, Jaap

I am not personally aware of any conversion kit for that grinder. Even with grinders such as Mazzer, where you can get the parts for conversion, they are very expensive and most people choose to do something else.

It is only a guess but I think you will need to rely on yourself in the conversion. Google search on doser conversion or similar will give you LOTS of hits for you to see what others have done.

thanks Wayne!

my Mazzer is doserless, but my old one (Pavoni Jolly) is not.
Seems a waste to throw it out if I can use it for my holidays hence I am looking for some sort of mod.
I will try google again, but (before posting) I did not have much luck.
I can make something, but would be great to see if someone has done this to see how.

thanks

Jaap

The google was for the concept of changing the grinder doser, not for that exact doser conversion.

It all kind of depends on what you like and want. Some people take all the working parts out and custom fit a funnel into the bottom of the doser chamber, others are happy to leave some parts there and work around them.

Me, myself, I like dosers and MY time with grinders is that a doserless is messier than with a doser but if you have different results then that is what you need to go by. YMMV!

Wayne and OP,
I wonder if removing the doser and installing either Andy Schector's "Schnozola" or the EPNW little spout they used to sell would work?
The screws could go back in the appropriate holes. Some people just use aluminum foil to cover the missing doser area. Not sure about this grinder, though.
I'm sure a chopstick will be needed to remove grind stuck in the throat.

not sure about this grinder either hence I got the mazzer mini elec B.

but I do want to keep the Pavoni for the holiday shack and spare. (living without is not an option, besides most espresso in SW England is terrible)

The doser unit comes of completely by pushing one button, leaving the hole. I hope I can make something up that ends with a spout (and will report back with the results after the holidays).

Hope to replicate the attachment end of the doser, so it sits on the grinder the same way.

I do have a fair bit of grinds "sitting" in the passage between the burrs and exit, but I guess the only way to resolve that is to throw the first bit out OR drink more!

Any luck with that? I am looking for the same thing. I figure in this brave new world of additive manufacturing we can come up with a good solution...

Sorry, no news so far, no time when I was over there and the machine is left there waiting for me next visit.
I need a template of the inside of the hole and catch (on my todo list) and was going to fashion something from a bit of tin or aluminium.
As you said a 3d printer could be a more professional solution. Don't have access to one unfortunately.

I will report back, but it wont be before easter 2014;(
