    Comment on Smart Grinder Pro

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi, I am about to invest in my first ever coffee grinder. I am looking at Smart Grinder Pro.
    Does any have that can share about the pros and cons?

    Thanks in advance.

    Pro - it is a good entry level grinder.
    - Price is not too bad.
    - easy to use

    Con - messy
    - slow
    - not consistent but not terrible

    *thought* if you can stretch to a Mcap M2 start there

    Smart Grinder Pro is a very well thought out grinder, I like its hand-free grinding and digital timed dosing which are only seen on commercial grinders 6-8 times of its price. The main draw back is probably It will only last a few years due to being an appliance. But then I only paid $190 for it brand new. I upgraded from Smart Grinder pro to M2m last year however was still missing the features on SG Pro. then I upgraded again to M4D.

    I recently bought the Smart Grinder Pro. I think it works well enough. My espresso machine is a La Pavoni Europiccola and I am getting very nice results.
    @symphonie : How much of an upgrade in the grind quality did the Macap offer compared to the Breville?
    Most of the comparisons of this grinder on the web that I was able to find were between it and the previous models by Breville.

    Cheers,

    Erez
