Thanks Mal for the thread - My old thread was a bit stale after having the Kony - e for three weeks.
Notes to date:
The Rocky was quiet satisfactory especially with the Silvia but was not able to deal with the demands of the GiottoP. *So I was getting frustrated. I have noticed that the difference between the Rocky that I have had for 4 years and the Kony - e is quite significant.
The Kony-e is much faster (17gms in 6 sec as against Rs 22secs) and seems to be very accurate in its dosing. It doses by time and it easily adjustable in a read out - the weight is consistent.
It is also quieter - even when the auxilary fan cuts in. *The grind being very slow is cool (420 rpm). *
I am a very greenbean at making coffee, but from the very first proper grind all cups have been drinkable.
The coffee taste is quite different and doing a short double shot is really good (high wife approval). *Currently it has a whole taste. *I am using The blend that Epic uses - but dont get the same taste - yet - ( oh for a Synesso!!!! - no wife approval at all )
I decided (with Ws Ap) to jump the middle upgrade and go to the top - I have calculated it will pay for itself over 2 years (Giotto is well and truly in the black now).
(There is a hopper magnet on a ring that us a real mystery - it is available as spare part - which makes me even more worried!)
Well over caffeine limit
