    Who's ordering one? This new grinder looks really good and it's made in Melbourne!

    Nice to see an Aussie designed alternative to the Niche, though somewhat more expensive.


    Are you sure it is made in Melbourne? I thought their gear was made in China?

    I donít think itís a Niche alternative, itís more like a smaller, cheaper alternative to the Monolith Flat.

    Designed in Melbourne made in China I believe.

    Like so many products we see nowadays, the designers make a big thing about where it was designed, you have to search the fine print to discover where its made.

    Seems only a few months back the (Niche) was flavour of the month, been usurped already.

    Quite pricey indeed by the time you add in shipping and GST.

    From Lagom -

    "Pre-order starts now! 7th September, 2019, 08:00 AEST.

    This is the pre-order for one unit of Lagom P64 for late November delivery.

    The deposit for pre-order will be a non-refundable $600 USD, with the remaining balance due when the grinder is ready for shipping.

    The total price of Lagom P64 will be $1475 for Standard Burrs, and $1585 for SSP Red Speed Burrs.

    Please Note: Price shown in US Dollars. "

    Hmmm...

    Think I would rather have a Niche to be honest.

    For home use youíre probably right Mal, but this is quite different to the Niche and not really a direct competitor.

    I ordered one! Silver with SSP burrs.

    I would have liked a Kafatec Monolith, but they are a bit out of my price bracket. I'm guessing this should be a good consolation though.

    So, what do you reckon the target user group would be mate?
    Doesn't really seem to be a truly commercial proposition...

    Yeah I wondered a bit about that as well. I canít be 100% sure, but I think thereís probably two main targets. The first is the high end home user, the real coffee geek that wants a single dosing, flat burr grinder, but canít afford the Monolith Flat. The other is probably roasteries for quality control. I canít see that it would ever go into a cafe for retail use, but could be quite useful in a QC or cupping capacity for a roaster. Again it could be an attractive proposition for a roaster that wants that capability but canít afford the Monolith or an EK.

    A new batch is on pre sale for January delivery. Iíve decided to try one.

    Owners their previous grinder seem happy with them.

    Iíve been looking for a single doser with flat burrs, looking forward to January.
