    Best Grinder Recommendation? Baratza Virtuoso vs Breville Smart Grinder BCG820

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

    I've been looking around to replace my cheap Sunbeam grinder with something that makes a nice espresso or french press. It's very messy and produces clumpy grinds.
    It seems like the Baratza Virtuoso is the most recommended for espresso and french press. Looks like it has a quality burr set and nice features for approx $250 (the high-end of my budget).

    My second option is the Breville Smart Grinder Pro / BCG820) which seems popular with buyers and closer to my budget. It has just about every feature that I need and easy to clean. With 60 adjustment levels Iím guessing that it will be accurate enough to get the shot just .

    It's a lot of information to take in, should I just go for the Virtuoso (itís not that much more)? Is there another coffee grinder that I should consider buying?

    Any help much appreciated.
    Cheers.

    For $250 SG Pro is probably your best bet, if you can stretch to $400 I'd say Macap M2M.
