    Tough to pick between these three!

    I nearly went for the Profi; ended up with an ECM V-Titan which is functionally pretty much identical but looks prettier

    I haven't used the other two.

    Really comes down to ergonomics, features and aesthetics - grind quality will be near identical by all accounts.

    I like the twin buttons on the Profi (V-Titan has a single button you press with the pf) and the dosing funnel lid can be removed to clean, remove or modify the anti-static grid and to use the funnel as a dosing funnel (I posted about this recently).

    The Atom might be the choice if noise is a big consideration - not a big fan of the silicone chute tbh but as I said I've seen it in the flesh so take that with a big grain of salt. I do like the ability to remove the top burr without changing the grind setting, but that really only saves you 20g or so each time you clean so not a deal breaker.

    I believe the Fausto has a more user friendly adjustment mechanism but please correct me

    Rocket Fausto, Profitec t64 and Eureka Atom

    What machine are you matching it with?

    On spec all three have their benefits and it is a close choice.

    Sometimes there is something nice about having matching machine and grinder package .

    For what it's worth the Fausto is made by Eureka. If your not matching it with a Rocket or Ecm I would look at the ATOM as an all round better unit.

    Cheers

    I like the ECM, but The Profitec and Rocket look easier to clean, as the adjusment is done via the bottom burr so it should be simple to clean and not have to dial in again, so leaning towards the Profitec or Rocket.

    the Atom is better but i just dont like the look of it... It does look a bit ugly for me.

    Agreed re: the ECM S-64 - I have the V-Titan which has the same funnel as the Profitec.

    Both ECM grinders and the Profitec share the same burr carrier and adjustment system, which is terrific but does adjust the top burr - so you do need to dial in after cleaning/burr replacement.
