    New Orphanespresso grinder?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    There have been a number of recent teasers on Instagram which appear to be for a new carbon fibre bodied hand grinder.

    One post shows a carbon fibre body and winding handle which are described as weighing 36 grams.

    The most recent post shows the carbon fibre body with handle attached and side port hole through which it would seem beans are introduced. No cover to stop pop-corning? A central axle shaft can be seen through the port hole. This post is referenced with "Back to work on the Fixie in Taiwan". One post is responded to with "This one is a Ultralight for travel - not espresso..."

    A stainless steel catch cup is shown which is referred to in an earlier post as "ultimate solution vs static".

    Very intriguing and, after just having to limit luggage for a 5 day trip to Flinders Island to 10 kilos, just the sort of thing I really need for travel.

    It is apparent from the most recent tease that the name "Fixie" relates to the fact that grind adjustment will be limited by use of a fine, medium or course disc. They say that the grinder is not intended for espresso and one photo shows a barista champion doing calibration testing on a pour over disc.

    The weight is currently at 330 grams with more effort at whittling away grams.
