IT IS REALY  BIG

Detailed Commentary

the Cunill CT2 is a high volume commercial grinder and this review is as much about the idea of a big commercial grinder for home use as it  is about this particular machine. when i went to buy a used grinder i found high end home machines such as the Rocky going for considerably more money than comercial machines. I was looking for a bargin and i got one. the CT2 is sold under various brand names, mine has the name "Quality Espresso" on it but no matter about that it is a Cunill CT2. the working parts of this machine, motor, burrs etc are big burley heavy duty bits of hardware. the housing, hopper, dosser and such are plastic pieces that look and feel a bit cheap, if i were a heavy commercial user and had payed 389 sterling for this thing i would be a bit dubious of the plastic parts, but for my purposes it is fine aside from being ugly. if my coffee setup were not in my utility room the size and appearance of this machine would be a big problem, i don't think i could live with this monster in my kitchen. a grinder of this class will not fit on a normal kitchen counter, it is way too tall to slip under the overhead cabinets, it dwarfs my LaPavoni  Coffee machine, it is in short a ridiculous thing for a normal home user, which may say something about me because i love it. it works flawlessly and will probably continue to do so long after i am gone.  one little complaint about the adjustment of the grind. it is easy to adjust once you work out where to start, but there are no marks on it  to indicate "1 to10" or "course to fine" or anything else. as mine was used and the previous owner had put a spot of white paint on his preferred setting i had at least a clue as to where to start.

Buying Experience

I did have a bit of a problem with the seller, but these things happen the odd time on ebay and it did all get sorted out in the end, so a bit frustrating, but ok .

Three Month Followup

no change in opinion after 3 months

One Year Followup

still going strong, still ugly, still love it
