That was my story exactly. It wasnt till I started researching espresso machines that I stumbled onto this, and a cuppla other very informative sites.Originally Posted by cantoccino link=1223007119/0#0 date=1223007116
Ive since been spending money hand over fist upgrading to better equipment, although I did get by pretty well with my Sunbeam grinder. I reckon its not a bad unit and a bargain for the money. I recently upgraded to a Mazzer and the difference in flavour is obvious...but at about 4 times the price of my Sunbeam Id expect it to be.
Obviously if money is no object then shoot for the high end stuff. Get the best you can possibly afford.
Or you could just tread water for a while, ask heaps of questions, and do lotsa research till youre 100% sure what you want/need/can afford *:)
Sorry I dont know anything about the grinder you have but theres sure to be someone here who does.
