    Absolutely the Mazzer if you can afford it. Ive always had one with my Silvia and sold a spare Silvia I had to a friend whod just bought a doserless Rocky for it. It worked OK but was 1) noisier, 2) slower, 3) messier, 4) not infinitely adjustable and 5) was set to about 2 or 3 out of 25 on the fineness scale to get the right extraction, whereas the Mini has plenty of room to move finer if necessary.

    What Greg said- With grinders you get what you pays for....Every time ;)

    Have a read through the grinder reviews for more info.

    Thats a great review Greg, you even recorded the noise sound!
    Im thinking a Compak as well (K3 Touch) - I presume K3 Elite and K3 Touch has a similar noise level?
    My big consideration for a grinder is that it has to be quiet so I can grind my coffee in the morning
    without waking up my housemates. In this case I think Mazzer Mini wins.

    Ive got both the K3T and the Mini on my bench at the moment and the K3T is definitely the noiser of the two.

    I say that the K3T does enough of the job for a home grinder, but if you can afford it I say go the Mini. Of all the grinders that Ive tried at home, and trust me when I say that Ive tried quite a few, the Mini is my fave home grinder.
