Also tempted to purchase too... Curious to know how much people from the UK have been stung on importing fees?

Look forward to seeing the comparison.
hi

Are you asking if Option-O commits tax evasion on the customer's behalf?

Well I would not be sure about that thickness you are looking forward to. P100 is an extraction monster true dark roast will be extracted in a very small amount of time... If you want thick short espresso from the dark roast you simply do not buy 98mm flat.

yea I aware that p100 isn't best for dark roast. I keep sette 30 or may be get niche or 64mm flat burr for dark roast future but would like to explore with p100 light to dark bean espresso.
any recommendation for dark roast?

I am sure someone from the USA can chip in. In Singapore, we have a wonderful Roundboy roasters, they really know what are they doing when they roast their medium-dark and dark roasts but yeah pretty far away from Brooklyn :)

I'm with sette 30 and Flair pro 2 and was debating which one upgrade first or both with 3k budget.
I almost pulled trigger pro 600 with atom 75 (which also decent set up) but I really want single dose grinder.
so I decided to get decent and never need upgrade grinder first. :) I drink medium roast espresso most of tine but love to explore light roast.
Hope I made good decision. pro 600 probably next year.
Coild i ask how much were you charged for shipping to the US? I assume iy is being shipped from melbourne so the shipping cost is a concern...

The website says the P100 ships from Shenzhen:

When you go to checkout, you can see the shipping charges to US, $245 for air freight, $279 for expedited. Then I'd set aside another 6-7% for import duties.
