    Hi Guys,

    New member here saying hello. Ive admired the Elektra Microcasa SA for a long time, so I recently pulled the trigger on one via one of the site sponsors.

    This thing is punching out some incredible shots, straight off the bat.

    Heres a pic of the beast.

    Must say Im enjoying these boards and the many informative threads and look forward to getting the best from my new machine.

    Im off to a good start, just bought some of those Tanzanian wonderbeans from the Beanbay!

    Located in Sydney. Looking for a new grinder as we speak! Got my eye on the Anfim Best or the Macap M4.

    with such a lovely machine, Id shell out for the Macap M7K - perfect visual match :)

    out of the two you suggest, M4 would be my desired grinder.

    Wow that M7K is an impressive beast. Budget and kitchen space dont cover it though :(

    Im leaning towards the M4, but the Best has the advantage (for me) of slightly more compact size. The downside is the stepped adjustment, as opposed to stepless adjustment of the M4.
