Thanks for the addition to the group. Seriously considering building a drum roaster along the lines of oldgrumpus's. Love the design and craftsmanship.

My New Grinder
LongLeafSoaps
I was the high bidder for this grinder on Bay a bit over a week ago. It's a Baratza Preciso.

After replacing the conical burr, and ring burr holder, and giving it a thorough cleaning inside and out, it feels like mine now. It is super quiet and seems to grind just dandy, just as good as my vintage Dienes Mokka grinder only way faster, and no shoulder motion needed, lol!

So here is the reason I replaced the conical burr, the ring burr wasn't too much better, and the ring burr holder was cracked in two places.

A comparison of the grind from both the vintage Dienes Mokka grinder, and the Baratza Preciso grinder.

I always knew the Dienes grinder did a great job, but this is about as fine as I can go with it, plus I have a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder, and had my left biceps tendon reattached 2 years ago, and a cartilage tear repair, and resurfacing of my left wrist a year ago. I will probably still grind with the old gal every now again because I do actually like grinding my coffee by hand (for a single cup or shot anyways ;-), but if I have several cups in a day, my torn rotator lets me know it...

Glad you were able to get a good grinder!

No left over parts?
Anytime I have parts left over, I just say it was over engineered.

One, note. If you use it for espresso, Having put those new burrs in, it will probably take a few pounds of coffee through it to start making consistent shots.

Nice job!
No oil on my beans...

running out of beans is almost as bad as when I trundle to the kitchen at 3am only to discover my Miele 5K want it's 200 cup cleaning...


hate that, I do.

Thanks Tony...

I really like that screw driver..Fiskars, right? I only wish it had an on/off lever like a Snap-On ratchet....otherwise, I spend too much time figuring out which of the 4 settings it has...maybe I could nail polish a green and red dot on it, why didn't I think of that before???

It should hold you in good stead for years to come

Yes, Fiskars! Hang on to yours, these are hard to find in good shape. I love mine. The labels fell off long ago on mine, it was a pass down from my dad so it has sentimental value as well. I've gone through a bunch of ratcheting screwdrivers, and the only two that have stood the test of time is my Snap On, and the Fiskar. Yes, good idea on the nail polish. It has the raised Fwd & Rev on it, but it's hard to see. Highlighting them would be perfect.

Now go roast and tell me how good the Preciso works!

Wow...I never noticed the Fwd & Rev before! I also never paid attention that it has onboard bit storage =P

I am reporting back..so far so good with this grinder...it is so quiet compared to the cheap junk electric grinders I have had in the past, I just want to keep grinding beans because it is so pleasantly quiet, lol! Grin

Other than the pleasant grinding atmosphere this grinder creates in the wee hours of the morning, it grinds consistently without fail. And NO STATIC!!! YAY! ThumbsUp

I would recommend the Baratza Preciso to anyone wanting to move up to a quality grinder, but isn't ready to take the leap into one of the commercial coffee house type grinders quite yet...

I would either recommend finding a used grinder on eBay, Craigslist, etc, since that is what you are essentially receiving if you purchase one of Baratza's "refurbished" grinder program, save yourself a little $$ since that is what you would be getting anyway...a used grinder.

I have yet to use this grinder for espresso, but I am roasting later today, and I am eager to see how it does with the R.O.K. With my hand Dienes Mokka grinder at the smallest grind setting, all I can get is a thin 1/8" layer of crema...I am not expecting miracles, but my fingers are X'd!
