My concern is that you align the EG1 by eye and feel, rather than by measurable structural design. Despite this concern, I have never seen anyone complain online about problems attributable to malalignment of the EG1.
I would be interested to hear what Mike and others think about the new Ceado e37sd as an alternative to the Monolith Flat or MAX.
Is burr alignment an issue with the Ceado? Will the Monoliths produce superior results in the cup? There's no doubt that the Monoliths are miles ahead of the Ceado in design and craftsmanship. But those considerations aside, will the quality and consistency of the grinds themselves be greatly different?
The Ceado Hero is out of the picture for me, so I'm not thinking of that comparison.
