    Grinder to pair to La Marzocco Linea Mini

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Gents,

    Figuring out which grinder to pair to my linea mini. I have an ECM 64 which i think ill offload in the future and find something that looks nice next to the mini. Im contemplating the mazzer SJ electronic? The LM Lux D looks nice, but it looks basically just like a modded mini E at an inflated price. Any suggestions for a decent flat burr that'll do a 18g double around the 8-10 sec mark. I've used a M4D and wasn't super impressed, lots of clumping and mess i thought.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Hi Chris
    Super Jolly E for flat burr or Kony-E if you want to stretch that far? Both will be pretty fast and do a great job…
    Cheers Matt

    Why not have a look through all the grinders stocked by many of our Site Sponsors these days...

    There are a few new kids on the block that are revealing to be quite impressive...

    its white. I have a major E at the moment for a short while, happy with the quality in the cup, just that retention and hassle to change grind when changing beans is a pain. I find small changes to the grind take some time to filter through. Plus it's quite huge!

    That pic above says it all. Find a white grinder. Compak E5 and Quamar M80E are both V. nice.

    I hear you mf,

    I am not much of a fan of white for espresso machines, nor or wood for that matter.

    Site sponsor George aka The Coffee Man nailed the Slayer and made sense to pair it with a white grinder- and yes, you picked the e10.

    Just goes to show...

    Mine too frequently looks like the new brown.... More frequent wipe downs required....

    White at home? Doable. Just... White in commercial environments? Crazy if you ask me....
