The standard grinder for the domestic user, the MC2 punches well above its weight and is said by many to be the best in its class.
Don't just take our word for it, read this:
A review of the iberital MC2 coffee grinder
kindly donated by Cakeboy, who is a member of the independent coffee resource TMC.
This is the automatic version of the HD0865, this is the model to buy.
The MC2 auto really shines when used in the 'home user' scenario. This machine does not have a dosing hopper on the front, it has a chute, this eliminates the need to grind more coffee than is needed. No more coffee left to go stale in the dosing hopper !
Highly rated by coffee enthusiasts throughout the world for its consistency, build quality and value for money price tag, you will be extremely hard presses to find a better grinder for home use, especially at this price.
This grinder grinds each dose individually which is controlled by an adjustable timer so you can determine the exact dose of coffee you require, the MC2 auto will generally dispense between 5 - 7 grams of coffee at a time.
This grinder has special conical blades which enable the coffee to be ground at cooler temperatures, keeping in the taste, while retaining high speed output.
It has a grinding speed of 600RPM this is good because the coffee does not get hot during the grinder process and more of the taste is kept in.
The main hopper holds 500grams of beans, the dosing hopper holds 130 grams of beans.
Has adjustable grind level from fine through to course.
It comes complete with a 13amp plug.
A lovely little machine the dimensions are:
Height 375mm, Depth 270mm, Width 165mm.
Weight 4.5 KG.
Spare blades and hoppers available.
