Hey Everyone!

Long-term lurker, first time poster here. Usually find the answers I'm looking for so never needed to post until now.

Can anyone identify this grinder? I currently have a Baratza Encore for my Gaggia Classic and saw this offered locally.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There doesn't seem to be any links or photos, could you give us some information about it?

Sorry about that!

I attached the photos but didn't link them.

Thanks for your help.

I had one before, I believe it is a Saeco rebadged grinder, similar setup to the built-in grinders you can find in Estro-profi espresso machines. It has a tiny flat burr set but a 350w motor, just too powerful

If the plan is to pair it with the Gaggia Classic then give it a pass especially if you use non-pressurized filter basket. If you use pressurized filter basket, just stick with the Encore.

Thanks everyone!

It turns out it's something along the lines of a Saeco MC2002 with a doser. Definitely going to pass.

Just thought it was a good deal, but not worth the counter-space.
