I'm looking to pick up a grinder for a home espresso setup. An MC-2 would be ideal, but may be willing to stretch the budget slightly for e.g. a Mignon or similar.
Would need to be posted to Newcastle.
I've been (just) surviving for the last 5 years without an espresso machine on filter coffee. Finally, after dropping hints for about the last year, my wife bought me a Rancilio Silvia for Xmas just gone.
The new machine is great although it has been quite a learning curve getting...
Hope all is well in the forums.
Just went to grind my beans tonight, and "whirrrr" !! It has packed in on me !
Some questions for those in the know :
Sounds like a struggling/failed motor. Is this likely?
Is it an easy fix?
Is the part(s) available?
Is it ready for grinder...
My MC2 is no longer grinding - without beans in the hopper it runs okay (though seems to be running slow) but as soon as I put any beans in it immediately jams and makes a buzzing noise. I've stripped the top end, burrs etc and cleaned everything up like new . Maybe it just needs new burrs but...
Hi, I have a Cunill Iberital Marfill grinder which I bought second hand. The grinder was working perfectly the last time that I used it, yet today it mysteriously is acting very, very strangely. When I switched it on, the sound was very muffled - it's usually quite a noisy beast - and it did not...
Gaggia Classic Ri8161/40 purchased from Currys 24/11/2011 (still have receipt). Light use as I only drink coffee at the weekend and then only 2-3 cups per day. Regularly cleaned with puly caff and backflushed. The machine is working absolutley fine and produces great coffee, but could probably...
Good morning everyone.
A little background to why I am picking the items in the title before I start.
I have only just very recently started my journey into the world of real coffee, having realised that instant coffee isn't actually coffee. Whenever I have tasted coffee using real coffee...
Good afternoon everyone, I've got a bit of a problem with my MC2 (non doser) the timer doesn't work so after a chat with Scott over at happy donkey I ordered a new PCB. I have just fitted the new PCB but it keeps tripping out as soon as I press the porter filter in to grind.
Has anyone got any...
After many years of using a Gaggia Classic, I've decided to try my luck with the Silvia. Just wondering if I need to think about upgrading my grinder at the same time. I've been very happy with my Iberital Mc2 for many years now, and I've only recently put new blades in it. Anyone have any thoughts?
I'm looking to buy a grinder to pair with my delonghiespresso machine, this is my first machine and I'm aiming to upgrade to agaggia classic a bit later in the year. But for now I'm looking at getting myfirst espresso grinder, ideally a second hand one.
I have a limited budget (...
I have for sale my trusty Iberital MC2 bought 6 months ago brand new from Happy Donkey. It has been used for approx 2 espressos a day since then.
I have filed down the ridges in the exit chute to aid grind retention and there are a couple of minor dings on the back caused by...
Gaggia classic coffee machine with Iberital burr grinder, tamper and milk jug. This machine has an upgraded (Rancillio Silvia) steam wand and upgraded coffee basket. This in my opinion is the best espresso setup available at this price point. The upgraded steam wand is a new addition to the...
This grinder has now been sold!
Due to a recent upgrade, I am no longer using my trusty Challenge grinder (MC2?) so it is being offered for sale.
Condition is very good with no scratches on the body and only light scuffs and bean staining on the hopper. I have used it pretty much every day...
I've read many threads form this site over recent years, and thought it's time to join and benefit from the combined wisdom as I'm about to take the scientific art of making good coffee more seriously. I have owned previously a Baby Class, which sadly expired a couple around 4 years ago, and...
... pretty sure it's an Iberital MC5 anyway, it has Cunil Brasil printed on the bottom.
Reasonable condition, top of the doser is a bit faded.

So I've just had a bit of a mare attempting to clean my MC2 and I've managed to ruin the dispenser spout. Anyone know where I can get a replacement?
