Thanks solocrema

I've read all these posts and all others I can find here and on CG. Just wondering if there are some newer opinions , particularly with the newer 2008 revisions of this grinder. Olympia Express website refers to further improvements with the 2008 revision, but don't provide any details. The MOCA reminds me a lot of my BRAUN KMM30 in design and functionality and I had no problem scooping out the grinds and dosing my La Pavoni portafilter.

My opinions are that it's nicely compact and of course beautifully built. I agree that it's easy to use, too, but I also think that anyone contemplating buying one new could get considerably superior grind quality for less money elsewhere. So, I suppose it depends on how much one values the matching looks and nameplate....

Cheers
