    Need advice on difficult choice

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have the opportunity to purchase either of 2 grinders for the same price and both seem to be very similar in quality and performance.
    I need feedback from the coffee hounds on this site as to what may be the best choice.
    The grinders are : Macap mc4 doserless and the Compac K3t
    Would really appreciate some help.
    Thanks........

    Double check if you mean an M4D as the M4C is a deli grinder

    I can vouch for the Macaps performance as a former owner of one

    The MC4 is best as a deli grinder- which is why it has the bag clamp.

    When used at home, you may find that the spout angle leads to a tendency to avalanche.

    The M4D on the other hand is the aspirational home planar grinder, unless you are looking at big $$$ and big conicals...

    Ill look into the model more closely guys.....I am sure it was the doserless mc4, if so is this niot really suitable for home use as compared to the K3T
