Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that the 80mm burrs on the EG-1 are insufficient, not at all. This is the grinder I'm currently leaning towards. I was just questioning if it was good value, given that 98mm burrs with the Flat Max can (theoretically, but not practically) be had for $200 less. It's a lot of money, and I'm very much a bang-for-the-buck sort of guy - to a fault probably. So it pains me to think of paying more, for a "less capable" grinder. Even if I may not be able to taste the difference in the cup. Stupid maybe.
