Since there is no budget (unless 1K is the top, in which case there is a budget
) Mahlkoenig makes great grinders in Germany:https://europeancoffeetrip.com/seeing-m ... roduction/
Their EK43 and Tanzania are solid grinders. Also the Swiss made Ditting might tick your boxes. Ditting is a part of the Mahlkoenig group.
Many traditional Italian grinders (like Mazzer) are generally optimised for grinding espresso, so I wouldn't suggest them for Moccamaster. Some of the modern models are more flexible when it comes to grinding for filter coffee.
Eureka has a line of grinders suitable for filter coffee: https://www.eureka.co.it/en/catalogo/pr ... index.aspx
If you are totally allergic to Asian manufacturing it should be noted that if the grinder has electronic dosing, then it is very likely that some of the components are of Asian origin. You do have a choice of getting a grinder without electronic doser, like: https://www.eureka.co.it/en/catalogo/pr ... /1/25.aspx
