    Laj,

    I haven't had much of a chance to play with the helor for pour-over yet as I've been busy obsesssing over my amazing expresso pours
    I've just picked up a new kettle so I'll let you know how it goes (I have only the espresso burrs so would be interested to know how they compare with the other set)

    Cheers

    Thank you. Yeah I'm not sure why I got the standard as well as the espresso ones. Curiosity.

    I've got the espresso burrs for the Helor and having no problems grinding nice and fine for a 18g VST basket with my L1 lever.

    Haven't tried a V60 yet, but hopefully this weekend. Excellent grinder.

    Thank you. Yes, I'm sure the espresso burrs will grind fine and pour over, whereas the classic burrs grind pour over, but limited espresso. I suggest.

    Today I swapped over to the espresso burrs, and they can certainly grind much, much finer. I would suggest that it has absolutely no problem getting an excellent grind out of it, but begger me, it takes a long time, and alot of effort, to get. At least for the me.

    I didn't time how long but obviously the finer the grind, the more effort and time required.

    In any event, it isn't something I would enjoy using to grind espresso, so shall put it up for sale shortly.

    So it seems to me that I am destined to buy an electric grinder, and should aim for one with a short grind time. The search for a quiet one, or at least a fast one, continues.

    Maybe you should of gone for the Lido E, no need to swap burrs.

    As for your elusive "quiet" electric grinder, the Ceado E37s is stated to be quiet, see page 5 - https://www.bellabarista.co.uk/pdf/C...Reviewv1.5.pdf , and pretty fast.

    Dear Mr Logga,

    Yes; I saw those. Thank you.

    There is no need to swap burrs with the Helor, you are just able to achieve much greater control with espresso, so it is said, with the espresso burrs. I think OE do something similar with their Lido - the Lido 2E or something. The Helor gives you the same flexibility in one package.

    I think they are all loud, which brings me to speed. I like the speed of the K30, and were I in the USA or Europe would own one by now to try at home. The price here is unfortunately somewhat prohibitive. I have thought about the exotic's - the Monolith, the HG-1/electric and the like. But for the same money I would much prefer a K30.

    I hold out hope the Baratza 270W, when it is available in December, will prove a useful addition. It is said to grind 18g of espresso in 4 seconds. For around the $600 mark. I doubt my peasant palate would be able to tell the difference between it, and something like a K30, all things being equal, a situation that, to me at least, to rarely occur on the domestic front.

    Thank for the reference to the Ceado, I shall look into one.

    Regards
    Laj

    Looks like its down to the K30 and 270W. Maybe you should wait and see about the 270W, being new and all.

    But ultimately its what floats your boat the matters.

    Well, the K30 and 270W are contenders, lets just say that. There are lots of grinders out there, and all have their pros and cons, I suspect.

    I am off to undertake an espresso making course at 5 Senses Coffee shortly, so shall experience the 270W there. All good fun.

    Oh, good on you Laj for taking the espresso coarse, but one thing don't tell Javaphile that you spelled espresso wrong.

    Well since you raised spelling, 'coarse' is not fine in that context

    It wasn't deliberate? I thought it rather clever.

    Old post I know but the Pharos isn't noisy at all.
