I'm sorry I overlooked that.  Personally tho unless your going to be grinding continuously throughout the day the major is almost overkill.

Posted November 24, 2013 link

It's not a matter of capacity, it's one of taste in the cup.  Hell, a Mini has enough capacity in the home, but the shots from it are very lacking once you've had them from a better grinder; same goes for the Major.  The Major is a great grinder, but it pales in the cup compared to a big conical.

Thank you for thinking of me.
It must have been a great deal because it is not showing when I search eBay.com...

Edit: Just found it... do not know why it was not showing up before...

I made an offer... waiting for a response.
It is well worn the paint is scraped everywhere, clearly a café machine.
Also it was a doser converted to a doserless, so no electronics.
I do not think that this grinder should sell for $1600.00
I may proven wrong soon.

I was proven wrong!!! Apparently it was worth $1500.00 to someone!
The search continue.

Ya gotta "strike while the iron is hot"
I 've learned this lesson over and over. If ya see something you like and it isn't the everyday item, then snag it lest you regret not snagging later.
I found a used robur this summer and as we all know, the difference and consistency is astounding compared to flat burr machines. I was lucky enough that the seller was willing to ship it from Seattle to Phoenix for me. I had seen it weeks earlier on Ebay then it popped on CL Seattle,  and I wasted no time in contacting the seller. Glad I did. I won't tell you what I paid because you'll probably cry. But I'll keep a look out as well for you.

happy hunting

I know and I was there striking it... but there was someone that wanted it more than me.

Thank you very much for this.

I have received a few good lead so far from other members that I would not have found on my own (the American continent is a large place to search...).
Thank you to all for the considerations so far and future.
