    I now have (2) good grinders - which to sell?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I ordered an Orphan Espresso Pharos which comes in the mail today. I've wanted this hand grinder for a long time and was finally able to get one.

    Now a coworker of mine is moving back to his home country (was on a 2 year contract in Melb) and gave me his Compak K6 Silver as payment for some money he owed me, since he couldn't bring it with him back home.

    So I'm debating selling the K6 or keeping it, but leaning towards selling it. He bought it new when he got to Australia just under 2 years ago and used it at his home for a high-end espresso setup.. looks new. Should I keep it or sell it? I can't think of a reason I'd want both that and the Pharos since I actually like to hand grind, but maybe there are other reasons.

    Looks like I have to wait another week to sell it in the Sale section of this forum since I haven't been a member for quite 20 days yet!

    Wait until you've catered for that NYE Dinner Party with the Pharos before making any final decisions
    But enjoy the new grinders!

    Cheers Matt

    The NYE dinner party likely since many other items are too small such as: My home, my quantity of friends (new to Australia haha), my espresso machine.
    I do appreciate what you're saying though - the K6 is definitely set up for a higher output. Fair point!

    Hi cbrshadow (motorcycle?)

    One for medium single origins "of the day". One for dark roasts. One for decaf. One for Plunger / Turkish / Drip / Pourover / whatever grinds later if you feel the need to tinker and cannot be fagged getting it back to espresso (give the 15+g lag of wasted beans).

    Doesn't sound like too many grinders to me.
