  1. Valuations (What's it worth?)
    Significant birthday coming along soon so a Niche Zero is on order. But I've got a 12 month old Iberital MC2 which I bought new from Happy Donkey last year. Since then I've cut down the hopper (I think it looks better, plus easier to manage getting beans into it under the kitchen cupboards)...

    Hi, After repeatedly finding my espresso shots were incredibly inconsistent (either too bitter, too sour, or so coarse the shot wouldn't even pull properly) I noticed the issue seems to lie with my MC2... When grinding, it appears not only does the hopper rotate but the actual wheel you use to...

    Hi guys, 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...

    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...

    Afternoon guys, Just been reading a few fairly terrible remarks on the MC2 grinder. I'm quite surprised as i've used one for 5-6 years now and it seems fine to me. What exactly does it do badly? It is just a case of, more expensive grinders can do much better? Granted, mine is now only used...

    Hi All, 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...

    Hi I bought a second hand MC2 and it arrived last night. The seller kindly sent me some beans too so I used them to check the grinder out. I started grinding for 20 secs or so and it jammed. I took out the hopped and removed the beans that I could remove and started again. Nothing happened...

    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? I've found this http://www.pennineteaandcoffee.co.uk/MC2A+DISPENSE+SPOUT/0_CAAA121_CAAA195_CAAA221/PRAA807.htm#.WSGaeWgrJPZ but they have a £25...

    One week into having my first home espresso set-up since I worked in a coffeeshop 7 years ago! My pouring skills have got worse..... Ive actually just returned the scales as they are far too unresponsive for measuring espresso. Anyone else experienced that? Ill also be joining @luke and...

    Hi, I currently have a Graef Cm80 and have been quite happy with it but i don't find it gives a very good consistent grind for espresso... I like the look of the Sage by Heston grinder because of the in-built scales it has in it which I reckon would be useful - but the Iberital MC2 is a bit...

    I'm looking for something to experiment with over the next few months, trying V60, aeropress, espresso etc. Originally I was looking at an MC2 and also thinking of the Mignon but the price would be a big stretch. The other option I'm considering is the Feldgrind, seems to be much better at...
  16. Sold
    I've decided to sell my MC2. I put new burrs in this when I bought it, about 4 years ago, and they're still in good condition - I only used it for espresso for a few months and since then it's just been used on the weekend for brewed. The grinder is in a good, clean, condition. I disabled the...

    Can other MC2 owners answer a question for me: The hopper on my MC2 spins as it's grinding. There is a scale marked on the hopper, to mark the grind setting (questionable in itself), but this presumably means the hopper is supposed to stay put? This would be useless if the hopper moves, which...

    Hi All, I just bought a 2nd hand Iberital MC2. I know it is not the ultimate grinder, but for the price seemed pretty good. Anyway, I'm wondering if I'm missing a part or something. The hopper seems extremely loose and just moved about on top of the grinder. The grinder itself seems very...

    Hey guys, I've finally been allowed to upgrade but I need to get my current set up sold first. I have a Gaggia Classic (2006 model) working and in great condition for its age. Also has the Silvia steam wand upgrade. OPV mod has not been done. Basically, this is a virgin Classic with only the...

    I bought a new Mignon last week from Bella Barista and thought I would post some thoughts after a few days use. I have a Gaggia Classic and was looking for an upgrade to my MC2. Basically my MC2 was too noisy, quite messy and had questionable grind consistency so even considering the limits of...
