    Sunbeam EMO480?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I make coffee at home using a moka pot. I will probably look at getting a mypressi twist in the future but dont intend to go any further than that.

    I recently bought a Hario hand grinder but I think I need an automatic grinder. It seemed like the Sunbeam EMO480 was probably the best option at around the $200 mark. Are there any other options that will be good enough for my purposes at that price or cheaper?

    Thanks

    Would the Hario grinder be likely to sell on the FS forums here? What sort of price do they go for. Its a week old.

    Thanks

    Although I have not tested the Hario vs the 0480 I suspect the Hario is the better grinder for espresso, although more work.

    What makes you say: "I think I need an automatic grinder."?

    In the manual arena Im very fond of my Presso, and there are no ongoing costs with gas bulbs.

    I was contemplating getting a manual grinder for espresso, but luckily a fellow CSer suggested against it as chronic fatigue syndrome would set in unless you go to Thundergod,s dojo class for some training.
    The beamer may be the go for you if you use it properly, but as things go, you get what you pay for, just be aware of that.
    What,s your maximum budget for a grinder redrich?

    I dont really have a maximum budget. I thought $75 for the hand grinder was about right for my needs. The Sunbeam seemed to be the cheapest decent auto from what I could tell.

    I,d say give it a go.
    If it happens to be the wrong choice in the end, those hand grinders look good on the shelf as talking points, plus the fact that being relatively cheap, would not present to big a gamble. Let us know how you went.
