Single dosing grinder under $300
What is the best grinder to single dose with minimal grind retention under $300 (or even less) currently using a Hario Slim as my sunbeam em0480 is not grinding fine enough even with 6 shims
Without a doubt something from the Lido range - either a Lido 3, Lido E or Lido E-T.
Go the E or E-T if you can. I have the lido 3 and love it, but it is a bit touchy dialling in in the espresso range

The Pharos is well known for its zero retention, fluffy non-clumping grounds and straight through grind path. The upgraded version 2 has a readily accessible catch cup.
It is fast and relatively quiet compared to most power grinders. 17 grams in 20 to 25 revolutions in about 15 seconds and certainly less than 20 seconds. In other words pretty close to that sought after 1 gram per revolution.
PM me if interested in more info on an available Pharos.
