I almost wish I hadn't bought the Mazzer Super Jolly. This is a
non-traditional looking machine (kinda on the modern side) but it'd match up
well with one of the chromed or S/S prosumer machines. This is actually a
Nuova Simonelli MCD with what looks to be gold anodized finish. The seller
has it listed as new-in-box without the hopper & it retails for $1300 or so.
Might be a good pick up if you need a grinder.

I would agree. I was thinking of bidding on it, but the wife is about
to kill me as is with the 2 commercial grinders I have hanging around.

That was a Conti Eureka grinder. Nice stuff really. Nuova Simonelli
grinders are manufactured by Eureka and this is the standard grinder
manufacturer in use by La zocco Italy. I have customers who use
these daily for whole bean sales and filter coffee.

Looks like it has several other parts missing!

and this is for espresso? maybe espresso in bags. do you have long
arms???

the seller clearly has NO expertise in this area and is just a bad box
seller.

What other parts are you referring to? It seems to me that everything
except the hopper is there.

Yes, it's a shop grinder with a bag clip. The idea is to grind a lb. into a
bag ASAP so it has 75mm burrs. It will grind any fineness from turkish to
french press, including espresso but obviously it's not optimal as an
espresso grinder.

That's why someone got a bargain on a fine brand new shop grinder. All my
best deals on ebay have been from people who didn't know what the hell it
was they were selling. If the seller knew what it was and described it
correctly he could have gotten a lot more $, so his ignorance is your gain.
Now sometimes you get the blind leading the blind where neither the seller
nor the buyer know what they are dealing with and that gets you into
trouble. Judging from the name of the buyer, this one knew exactly what he
was getting and will be a very happy camper.

Howdy Jack!
Since it sold for $270 I'd say the buyer got a 'killer' deal. And the buyer
will have the option of using his new $1400 grinder or reselling it for a
nice profit.

This is a TALL grinder true, but it'd be no more inappropriate for home use
than some of the professional grinders I've seen on people's (myself
included) counter tops. The actual footprint of this grinder is much smaller
than my Super Jolly & it looks like it'd be easy to use as a doserless
model.

Like I said it's a shame The MSJ is working so well.

Definitely looks like an MCD that was re-badged. - http://
www.espressoimports.com/nuovasimonelli_MCDGrinder.html

Couldn't find anything much on it, though. It looks to be stepless
and since it is a well-known commercial brand, I doubt finding a
hopper would be hard.

Hey Robert, thanks for the link. Just curious though how you know it's a
"Nuova Simonelli MCD", especially since the seller seems to think it's a
"Royal Commercial" model "Richiedere D-75". Should I direct questions
about hopper availability to you or to the seller?

The pictures don't do it justice because you can't tell the scale. This is
meant as a store grinder that will grind a whole lb. of coffee in a little
over a minute. You clip a paper bag to the throat. It has 75mm burrs (thus
the model #) a 700w motor and is 2 feet high. In other words it is enormous
(and a bargain @ under $300 brand new). OTOH, not many people would need or
want such a thing in their kitchen.
