Up for sale is a like-new Nuova Simoneli Grinta grinder. I bought this grinder 3 weeks ago (from a fellow CG member: http://coffeegeek.com/forums/members/buysell/619970) and used it for a week and half before I stumbled upon a used Pharos hand grinder locally. Since Pharos grinders don't come up for sale often, I jumped in a bought it.
I had an Encore before I upgraded to the Grinta and the later grinder is much more consistent and fluffier. You still need to WDT since it comes out clumpy. But after clearing the chute there is <0.5g retention. It was easy to use hopperless and make the grinder stepless (see my HB post: Click Here (www.home-barista.com)). My mods were simple and 100% reversible! I would be happy to ship the grinder with my mods but the original hopper as well.
This grinder looks really slick and beautiful in the metallic gray color and, IMO, looks cool with the tamper and the mini-hopper. The motor is beefy and provides lots of torque to grind quickly (has no problem giving me consistent grinds with my lightly home roasted City+ beans). Grinding light roasts with the Pharos by comparison nearly makes my arm fall off.
I'm an analogue sort of guy, so I like the hand grinding and can't afford to have both at the same time (I'm a grad student in nyc so buying both in two weeks literally broke the bank).
Asking for 200190175 shipped (ie I will pay for shipping), firm.
Paypal is fine but if you have Bank of America we can arrange a transfer for free. My ebay feedback is 100% and so is my amazon feedback. I can give you my handles for those services once we communicate through email. I will take a photo of the shipping receipt and email it to you and also provide a tracking number. Shipping to lower 48 state or to be discussed on a case-by-case basis for other locations. Will be shipped double boxed ;-)
This is a great deal for people who are starting out or on a budget since this grinder is 330+ new but you can't easily find the gray color! You are getting a grinder that is much better than the Encore (which I had and loved) for only 45 bones more.
Email me if you have any questions. There are lots of pictures of the actual grinder by consulting the above links.

This is a great grinder and is in like-new condition! It is also much better looking than the ugly Rocky. With my easy and reversible stepless mods, I think it grinds better than a Rocky grinder. Even without the mods, it grinds great.
The things to keep in mind: you will need my mods to single dose, then it is pretty sweet. I can even ship it with my mods for free and, of course, I will include all the original parts (ie hopper). I will also include a stiff brush to clean out the chute (ie gonzo nose hehe). There is nearly 0 grind retention if used for single dosing this way.
