    Small Footprint Grinder Advice (&Ascaso sale/swap)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Love the forum. *This ones my first post..

    My wonderwife wife organised a Bday present for me recently - angel that she is ... a brand spanking new Ascaso Coffee Grinder * :D.

    Problem is that its simply too large *>:( *for us to leave out on the bench next to our coffee machine (QUAHA Junior) and I really dont want to have to put it away and pull it out every time I want to use it - so Im looking for some advise on a smaller footprint alternative that will still give me a fantastic result. (smaller footprint - mainly narrower and shorter, depth not such an issue).

    Research on sponsor sites seems to indicate that the ECM Best or ECM Doserless are probably the options. *Anyone got any advise on others I should look at or, other than price and Doser/Doserless options, advice between these two?

    Also - Im going to be looking to sell or Swap (+cash difference if price higher) the Ascaso (guaranteed unused, still in box) if anyone is interested in a deal OR if someone reads this and wants a brand new Ascaso at a discount price, its on the market.

    Hello Brayster,

    The smallest great grinder that I have seen is the Ascaso i2 mini. Im not sure that there are a lot of them around at the moment, but I think that Di Bartoli might have one or two.

    Cheers,

    Luca

    Gday Brayster,

    Welcome to CoffeeSnobs [smiley=thumbsup.gif].

    How about one of these little beauties.... http://<b><u>http://coffeesnobs.com....480374</u></b>. Seems like they are made very well and have a very well designed "adjustable" doser as well. Very hard to ignore given the extremely competitive price.

    Cheers,
    Mal.

    They are a highly impressive grinder. We have 4 available as CS special pricing with complimentary delivery as well. 2 of the four have a Coffeelab design tamper hiding in the box....so you have a 50% chance of a freebie gift ;)

    I got a Isomac Granmacinino Grinder from Di Bartoli - so far its been an excellent grinder.
    If you go there they have both of them out there - my wife had pretty strict requirements regarding bench space and grinders - she LOVES the grinder as it hardly takes up any bench space.
    You can see a pic of it on Di Bartolis web site and there are some reviews of it here: http://www.coffeegeek.com/reviews/grinders/isomac_grinder

    Thanks everyone for your input. Ive spoken with Di Bartolis and will probably settle on the Ascaso Mini.
