  • New grinder recommendations (compak E10 maybe)

    So, a few months back my isomac zaffiro started to die, the thermal fuse went and I didn't find a successful replacement but I did find out the machine runs fine without it and we'll the chance of pressurised explosion is only a distinct possibility.

    After intense research I've settled on a profitec 700, I like its features, it's look and from playing with it it feels like my machine.

    However I need a new grinder and I've kinda settled on a compak E10, however I'm looking at other options as well and am open to suggestions. The reason I like the compak grinders are the look, the build finish and I like the infinite scroll for the height adjustment, also it just looks sexy.

    While my isomac was having a hysterical fit over its self I got a mate a birthday present that included a compac grinder (much cheaper then the one I'm looking at) and after playing with it at his place I do like it.

    I've looked at mazer which are okay but really kinda old looking. Yes looks are important to me, but I want a great grinder that will serve me as well as my last one which was a rocky dosserless with a million and ten mods to it (it's frankenstine underneath her clothes)

    I'm pretty much strictly espresso as well, occasionally I grind for making iced coffee but 99.95% of the time I'm espresso drinking.

    What about the Macap M7D as a possibility?

        Reckon that's a good call on the Profitec [emoji4]

        The Fiorenzato F71 GT might be worth considering, if you can find it locally. Not sure whether any of the forum sponsors carry this brand?

          I originally looked at those and considered it until in person and I couldn't get over that weird stepped come look in polished stainless I think it was. Was a nice grinder and fast though.

          It's definitely on the list as a contender if I can not look at that stepped sides.

            I've heard good things about the Nino, I definitely like the adjustable portafilter and the top bracket which the compak F10 has as well.

            I do like the grind adjustment on the Nino it's definitely got a more retro old school feel to it without sticking out like a sore thumb. That tamper though :/

            I'd like to use one see how I feel about it.

              Never even heard of the brand before but I'll investigate. My only hesitation with importing something like that is the wait for parts should I need them and new burrs and the warranty.

                I'd like conical burrs but I'm not set in stone. But I've gone for conical for speed mostly. I've tried coffee from high end machines with flat and conical grinders and I couldn't tell much of a difference except for how fast they both grind with the conical coming in first by not very much but enough for me to notice. (The flat grinder was HUGE)

                The profitec grinder got and similar ones in its class got rejected due to speed. Quickish yeah but slow compared to what I want and once I started getting to play with big grinders I kinda fell for the big buggers.

                    It has my attention. I really like the idea of a scale built into the grinder. I can't find an Australian distributor for prices though.

                          Anyone here have a ceado E37s, they caught my attention apparently the burrs are on rubber mounts that makes the grinder much quieter which is an appealing feature.
