That is where personal choice, the machine you are using or plan to use, type and roast of coffee, and milk/cream/flavoring etc. come into play.

Well, "personal choice," certainly. But the other stuff, no. The differences in big conics (including the wank the crank HG One and Pharos) are far more in "use," counter territory, and price, than in the cup.

And even if you're comparing big conics vs ordinary big flats vs the super big flats, the differences in the cup largely come down to good, better and best rather than which grinder will grind a particular bean in some uniquely suitable way.
