    Good grinder match for a VBM super lever

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have finally narrowed my machine choice down to one (well 99% sure) thanks for all your input. *:)
    I now need to go through the grinder (so to speak) *;D
    I know a super jolly is a great grinder but the number of times I will be making more than two coffees are rare , (yes i know the machines an overkill !!) *so I would like something that sweeps the doser (ifit has one) pretty clean or a bit less watse and mess..... your input is appreciated...

    Thanks * *;)

    Macap M4 micrometric in chrome...So long as its an espresso only grinder. Grind adjustment via the worm drive is very precise but slow...

    If money isnt an issue, I still think that the mini electronic is a sensational home grinder. I was actually going to pick one up myself, but I ended up with a Kony on the bench, so that will do me for the moment.

    Cheers,

    Luca

    ...and I still think that the Macap M4D is a better grinder and at a better price point as well *;)...But then Luca and I have never agreed on that one!

    Apart from the fact that only about 3 grinders are ever considered on CS as being worthy contenders I will still recommend the Cunill Tranquilo doser for around $399 plus $40 extra for the stainless steel version.
    A great grinder with 60mm flat burrs and a heap of oither extras. I have been grinding for a couple of months now for my Gaggia Classic and also for a Silvia and cannot fault it.

    No doubt about it though, these are terrific bang for buck..... I think one of our site sponsors, "Cosmorex Coffee" used to stock these babies but Im not sure if they still do....

    I forgot to mention that I think that the Compak K3 Touch is sensational value for money; probably worthwhile looking into.

    I had a laugh; heres to not agreeing!

    If youre free on Saturday, you might like to drop by and play around with a new grinder that we have on the bench at the moment. It is the new Elektra doserless conical thing, which I would bet is made by Macap. Its quite civilised, but is instantly written off in my books purely because Im not going to pay $4k for a grinder without stepless adjustment! I havent really given it much of a go, but its sitting there, right next to the Robur.

    Cheers,

    Luca
