  • Any Benefit to Grinding Drip w/Espresso Grinder

    Would a espresso grinder produce a better consistency of drip grind coffee? I'm planning on purchasing a grinder for drip and Aeropress. I'm looking at the Macap MC4 step, doserless. Any suggestions appreciated.

    I use a Macap M2M for espresso, drip, ROK, plunger, and stovetop. It'd work great for Aeropress too. A good grinder IMHO is better than a crap grinder and superlative brewing methods.

      Second the above - any good quality grinder should do all brew methods well
      Unless the question you are asking is – will an espresso grinder be better than other grinding methods - eg coffee whirly chopper etc?
      Cheers Matt

        Maybe a better question to ask, would a Macap mc4 grind better and hold up longer than say a Baratza Virtuoso for dip.

          Just a reminder that most espresso grinders have short duty cycles and shouldn't be used to grind a couple of hundred grams non stop

            I've been wondering the same thing; need to downsize from Espresso machine, and wouldn't mind reinvesting some of that money into a grinder upgrade (currently have a rocky doserless) What are recommendations for the typical upgrade?

              Well, the Macap M2M is good and affordable and easy to clean.

                Personally I'd like a used EK43 from someone who keeps breaking the shear plate and wants it off the counter.

                  (... that's not a typical upgrade. I think)
