    Best grinder for V60 ?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    For all you V60 & other pour over brewers out there, what would you consider the best grinder for a V60?

    I have been using a Hario Skerton hand grinder, which takes some time to grind with.

    What powered grinder would you recommend that has near zero retention, or should I look at a OE Lido 3 hand grinder?

    Vario or Forte with the steel burrs made for manual brewing.
    Quick sift for boulders with a standard 1000 micron kitchen sieve for a more even particle spread and sweet focused cups.

    Lido 3 it is!

    I should take delivery of it tomorrow, plus a new Hario kettle, scales etc.

    Good call. I use my Lido E-T for pourover and it's great. The Lido 3 will be easier to dial in for pourover.

    I found it very hard to justify an electric grinder, as I already have a Compak K10WBC for espresso duties.

    You don't need one, and you get so much more bang for your buck with a good hand grinder.

    That's what I thought.

    It could be just me, but using a hand grinder seems to be the natural thing to use with pour over coffee.

    Or, am I being too geeky?

    Shame you didn’t get the Lido E as I would love to see how it compares to the K10. Obviously they can still be compared but the E version of the Lido is easier to tweak for the sweet of espresso.

    I love my LidoE and keen to compare it to the hopefully to come soon Niche grinder

    Shame you live a little far away, I'm in the Macarthur area of Sydney.
    Could have met up for you to have a play and compare!

    Don't tempt me too much, I could still end up with one!

    After having my Lido 3 for 3 weeks now, all I can say, it's a great grinder for pour over.
    I use it for my V60 most of the time with occasional AeroPress.

    There was some static issues in the first week and a half, which have disappeared now.

    The coffee grounds seem very consistent, with very little fines. It's easy to grind with and fast for a hand grinder.
