    Does size really matter? My new Doge 83.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight


    Found a Fiorenzato Doge 83 2nd hand so its replacing my EMO480. I think the EMO is feeling a bit intimidated!

    Absolutely massive for the kitchen bench, but hey it grinds well and I got it for a good price. Obviously not using the hopper - just on for the photo to compare to the EMO. I am very impressed with the doser - sweeps amazingly clean.

    And as for the difference in the cup - wow! A huge step forward in my coffee making. Soooo bigger is better in this case! Just have to convince visitors it really is a good grinder for the price and no I am not making up for size deficiencies elsewhere in life ;D

    Should ask the real size question. I got the Doge 83 rather than 63 because it is what was available to me at the time. Is there any difference in bigger burrs besides what I am assuming is a greater rate of grinding beans (which may be useful for a cafe but not me at home)?

    These are excellent quality grinders "Pb".... 8-)

    Should last you a lifetime at home. They are available with either a 4-Pole or 6-Pole motor (~1,380 or ~920 RPM) with the 83mm burr-plates and I guess from a purely snobbish perspective, the slower motor would be the one to choose from if it was available. One thing you should notice though, is how quickly these things churn out the ground coffee, no mucking around with these babies.... [smiley=evil.gif]
