Is it a fair consensus that I would need to move the flat burrs to do espresso AND V60?

The real solution is two grinders, I agree. But space is limited in my kitchen, I need to live inside the footprint of my existing K10 and Pro 800.
I suggest you to buy DF64P for espresso and another manual grinder for filters

I would look into what SSP 83mm burrs are available before considering DF83. The big appeal of DF64 is the ability to use SSP HU and MP burrs. Otherwise there are a bunch of other grinders that would perform similarly to the stock DF64.

Another vote for 2 grinders - or see how the v60 tastes with espresso grind. My wife uses espresso grind (that I grind the night before) in her Moka for the first coffee of the day -- seems to work fine!

I agree with two grinders. Get the Ode with the V2 burrs and call it a day. It makes it so easy keeping the espresso and filter coffee grinders separate. The Ode doesn't really take up much space. It is as wide as a typical sugar jar, so not very much linear space at all.

In order to bring closure to this thread, I just wanted to let you know that I've secured a Monolith Flat that will attempt to place beside the K10.... until the family counsel lodges a complaint for counter space infringement.

This way, I can play with a conical and a flat to see what I like best. The flat should also allow me to grind for V60, which is a secondary brew method that we venture into but that we are not super focused on.

Might let you know how this pans outs in 2023!
Damn this forum, I've had too m..muh...mah..mmmm..much caffeine!
