Cafelat Tubbi

Post by Endo » Mon Mar 08, 2010 8:20 pm

I'm looking for a new knockbox to replace my Breville. :pukeleft:

Anybody seen this new Cafelat Tubbi? Seems to match the Vivaldi sides nicely and is not too small lke the Grindstein either.

Haven't seen it, but it looks like we just missed this (sorry):

Maybe email Paul? Perhaps he extended?

Paul gave me a break and sent me one of the new Cafelat Tubbi knockboxes. I must say, I really like it a lot!

The coolest thing is that the black matte textured finish is exactly the same as the Vivaldi side panels. You'd swear it actually came with the Vivaldi! :grin:

It's a little smaller than I thought, but still holds 15 pucks. It's a bit bigger than the Grindstein and the soft bar is removable (which is a plus for cleaning).

I also pick up a nice Cafelat tamping mat at the same time. It seems to be the same shape as the stainless grounds tray that comes with the Mazzer and provides you a nice surface to tamp on (and less polishing).

I must say I'm pretty happy with my little "grinding lab". It's a lot of gear to do basically the same job as a Vario......but it's so much cooler. 8)

Unlike the Tubbi, the Gralab timer is a lot bigger than I thought. :shock:

Sweet is the word!

I was this close to emailing Paul about a tamping mat, & just decided I didn't need it right now. Nice setup! I think we have a similar scale...

Thanks Bob.

Actually, I have the same scale but the 1000g version (see below). I like to sometimes weigh the grounds in the PF. I also weigh beans for roasting. So 100g was too small for me.
