Macap MC4 Stepped Doserless Espresso Coffee Grinder
If you are looking for a high performance espresso coffee grinder with stepped micrometrical adjustment of the grinding burrs and available for the most demanding situation presented by an espresso fanatic, then this is the grinder for you. In January of 2004, Macap presented and sent three samples of this grinder to 1st-line Equipment, LLC. After thorough evaluation, we provided some feedback on some changes needed on the Macap MC4 grinder. Unlike some other coffee grinder manufacturers, Macap made our requested changes at their cost. This was done while still maintaining a very competitive price point. As a result, both home enthusiasts and coffee shop owners can get this grinder at a reasonable price.
Some standout features include chrome plated steel to match polished stainless steel espresso machines and the placement of the electrical cord is under the grinder (not out of the side body as found on many other espresso coffee grinders).
Finally, do not feel confused between the Macap MC4 and Macap M5 grinder. The M4 grinder is the newest offshoot of the Macap M5. The Macap M5 has a longer, higher bean hopper on top that makes it extend over 18″ in height – not practical for the home. The Macap MC4 has a lower, but wider bean hopper profile for use in your home, office, or commercial establishments. Please note that the Macap M4 is considered a commercial-grade grinder and is not returnable under our return policy if used – as this grinder is capable for any espresso machine. Please make sure you have the necessary space before purchasing.
