Jericho Grinder Burrs

Postby Justin Johnson on Tue Apr 27, 2010 9:16 am

Does anyone out there know where I might find replacement burrs for a Jericho Type KH-100 home grinder? I don't want to get rid of the thing, I also don't want to crush my beans.

Jerichos were manufactured in China and sold by Coffee Bean International from outside Portland. Rising manufacturing costs a couple years ago resulted in CBI discontinuing these grinders and replacement parts, including burrs, which are all long gone. If this is the specific grinder I'm thinking about, the same burrs were used in the KitchenAid Proline grinder. I would love a set of burrs if you happen to find any :) We used the Proline grinder and pour overs at public functions to demonstrate to consumers that they are just as capable as we at making delicious coffee.

I've only seen shady looking ones on Amazon. Let me know how they turn out.

I got the new burrs today and I was skeptical at first glance. They felt dull. So what I did was ground some coffee with the old burrs and set it aside, then I replaced them with the new ones and to my surprise the grind consistency was alot better. I'm not sure how bad the consistency has gotten with your grinder but this is a big improvement. Worth the 34 bucks I'd say.

FYI - I communicated with a guy last year who did some mods on a set of Mazzer Mini burrs and his Proline grinder and was able to use them successfully. He indicated that it was a bit tedious but seemed quite pleased with results. If you're interested I can dig around and look for his contact info.
