Subject: Cimabli cadet - search is over...
I desperately wanted another Cadet (the auto fill model), since it's
my favourite grinder in the trailer. The 6-dose autofill is great
when we are busy, and doesn't result in wasted coffee when we are
quiet (we just use the grinder manually when quiet). Ebay eventually
turned this up. and at 70 I'm very happy :)

As long as it arrives undamaged :(

Yes, North Yorks is a bit too far to drive, but I wonder what a nice
Cimbali was doing in a barracks. Mind you, some of the nicest food
I've had was at an RAF base.

Well, definitely, since we don't have a Royal Air Force.

Actually, except when they are in the field, military officers, as befits
their status as "gentlemen", have always been surprisingly well fed and
Officer's Clubs are comparable in food service to civilian country clubs -
I'm sure there are espresso machines in some of them.

My thoughts exactly........... I guess airforce food must have improved, of
late.......I remember large urns of tea, heavily laced with bromide, the
intention being to curb the urges of a bunch of 18 year olds, during
training, it didn't work.. :-))

Brian

Great find, Danny! Although my Cadet has been relegated to being a "spare"
grinder, I have recently changed the burrs on it and it may see service in a
couple of months when Jim Schulman comes to visit and we do another one of
our "experiments."

It is a great grinder and if anyone else is so fortunate as to have a chance
to buy one used in good condition (they are now discontinued), the Cadet is
basically a Cimbali Junior grinder with an autoswitch. As Danny points out,
the power switch can be used as an on-off switch, so functionally it is just
a Junior grinder with a little bit larger bean hopper.

Since the hopper alone costs over 60 to replace it'd be worth it just
for the parts...

New (pattern) burrs on the way at 13/set... although I also ordered
many scale cartridges, steam wands, steam/water valves, steam valve
washers and "O" rings, Puly Milk cleaner, spare elements, lever group
seals etc, my order is a bit bigger than I first anticipated :)
