What grinder for ECM Synchronika

Recommendations for buyers and upgraders from the site's members.

Hi everyone,

I finally decided to get a decent espresso machine and I think I have decided on the ecm synchronika. I was wondering how much I should be looking to spend on a grinder to get the most out of it and if you have any specific recommendations? I was thinking about a single dose, something like the df83 v2, but maybe I should spend a little more to get something a bit better?

Welcome to H-B!

What's your budget?

What roast levels do you currently enjoy?

What characteristics of a good espresso do you like the most?

How often do you think you'll be changing beans?

Do you need the grinder to be able to do a good job with filter or pour over as well?

Hang around here long enough and you will learn the grinder selection is more important than the machine. Check out the Ceado E37S. I went with the 37J model for my Sync and regret it somewhat. The Sync deserves a very high end grinder paired with it IMO.

Df83 v2 w/ upgraded SSP burrs would be my choice or Lagom P64.

I had both a Niche and an Atom 75 when I had a Synchronika. I left the Niche for the Eureka because I got tired of single dosing... and now I am looking at a Lagom P64 to single dose again lol.
