Hello everyone,

New to the wonderful espresso world. After spending countless hours researching and starting with a $1K budget, ended up deciding on an ECM Synchronika.

Now I need to make a decision on a grinder. I am going between the Ceado E37S and Eureka 75. Price difference is about $320 USD.

It is for home use. Me and my wife. She likes very light milky drinks. We will be brewing about 6-8 cups a day. A machine that is good at single dosing will be nice.

What machine do you recommend and why? I would say the important factors will be (not in a specific order, please add if I am forgetting something)

Taste of coffee
Consistent measurement(Sorry, probably using wrong terminology)
Ease of use
Ease of maintenance
Durability and warrants
Singe dosing capability
Retension


Thanks in advance.

Eureka is substantial.

I would pair the ECM Synchronica with Ceado E37S. It is built like a tank, super quiet, no clumpingm fluffy grinds, and very low retention and easy to single dose. The quick set gear worm makes dialing in a breeze.

I have the Eureka Olympus.

I paired it with my Bosco for all of my doubles. I cannot compare directly to the Ceado but here are my thoughts on the Olympus.

It is extremelly fast in grind speed, able to spit out a double (14-16g) in 2.5 seconds. The grounds are so fluffly I am considering purchasing a basket funnel to prevent too many grounds from spilling over. Clumps are a very rare sight, and a light tap from the tamper usually breaks up any existing ones. The grinds are very consistent, though when I first received it used I aligned the burrs myself using the paper shim method just to be sure. Grind retention for me usually varies from 1-3g so when I have not used the grinder for over 30 minutes I do a half second purge. It can single dose but I do not recommend it. The knob is quite easy to adjust, though small turns will create large changes in grind fineness so pay a little more attention to the notches on the knob.

Compared to my Lido E it can produce very similar if not identical shots. I use my Lido E for singles as I do not want to waste coffee purging for only 7.5g of coffee.

The only negative thing I can think of is if you want to access the grind chute/electronics you need to peel off the Eureka logo on it which you may damage in the process.

Both grinders will give you great results so other factors have to come in play. Based on footprint and retention the Ceado E37S lends itself a better option for pro-sumer home use.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.
