    John, I saw a huge pile of them in Mecca when I was there 2 weeks ago. Around $70 IIRC

    Hi John,

    I found the kyocera quite dissappointing for brewed coffee; there seemed to be a lot of fines and the cup struck me as quite bitter. I had a very quick look at the hario and it looked like it might be a little better, but still definitely looked to have a bit of a problem to me at coarse grind settings.

    Using the Kyocera put me on to a trick that is fairly good, though; I have been sieving my grinds through a fairly fine tamis to get rid of the particles that are too fine. This results in a grind that probably doesnt allow as much extraction and, hence, suffers a bit from lack of complexity in brewing. However, the sieved grind is very resistant to overextraction, so you can remedy this somewhat by extracting for a longer time.

    Like people have said, Mecca will have them in Sydney, St Ali has them in Melbourne. The Kyocera grinder had a nicer profile and was a bit easier to use, so Id be quite interested in trying out the mini hario grinder as opposed to the skerton.

    Cheers,
    Luca

    luca - have you seen all 3 hario grinders? theres a box grinder too which looks like it may be japan-only.
