    Would a Lido E have the same find quality /consistency as a Eureka Atom?

    **grind** *
    This is a pretty specific question but I want to go to a manual grinder for less retention.
    What is the grind consistency and quality of the lido e? Would it be on par with the atom? (I'm not sure if this is a silly question, there is a large price difference)

    Also, what is the next level above the lido/pharos? I have a budget slightly higher than the $300 of a Lido.
    They say you should spend as much on your grinder as your machine, is this not applicable to manual grinders?

    Science Teacher, can't help but smiling about your thread. A month ago I was really enjoying reading your thread about the Atom - now we are reading about your quest for a replacement. Good luck with your search, maybe just go straight to the Kafetek Monolith now and save the pain in between?

    Shush! Don't tell anyone :') hahah.
    I'm still undecided, I really want to keep the atom. Haven't listed it yet, however I'm not stoked with the retention.

    I actually really want a Hg one I had a laugh. Haven't seen alot about the monolith. I know it's costly

    I'll help you out and swap you a Lido E for your atom!

    seriously I'm interested in where the Lido E sits in a comparison with electric grinders so hopefully you get some feedback.

    i was going through the same thoughts recently as want an electric grinder with low to no retention and have jumped on the Niche project (there's a tread on here re them) so hoping in 9 months time when arrives it lives up to the review.

    I just watched the video for the niche. I gotta say, I don't like the look at all. It seems to do what the baratza sette 270 does (no retention) but that's about it? 40mm vs 63mm burrs tho so that's a bonus.

    Swap a Hg for it and I'll consider! I had a laugh. I'll be back with feedback I suppose
