Thanks everyone! I see the differences now. I think what threw me off the most initially was the red speed coating.

Getting these seasoned today!

Oh my gosh...these are insanely clear burrs. Brewed up a V60 and I was expecting high clarity but I still wasn't prepared for the level of cleanness these burrs produce. Never tasted anything like this from a grinder before.

Also easily pulled a 23 second 6bar 1:2 ratio shot on my Decent with a really light roasted Costa Rican Honey. Ground on setting 1, so plenty more room to go finer but MAN this bordered on over-extracted even for a fairly fast shot. Clearly a high-extraction burr-set. Gonna be so much fun to play with.

You can buy these burrs from Titus and SSP directly. Is there a benefit of one or the other if I'm based in the US?

You can choose different coatings.
SSP: At least Silvernight or Red-Speed
Titus: Zrn (Zirkoniumnitrid). Of course also the SSP coatings

I'm not a specialist in coatings... I'm using silvernight for filter.

I've bought directly from SSP and it was easy other than a random FDA inspection slowing things down. Silver knight probably has the best friction coefficient for brewing, but coating shouldn't matter much. I'm curious if they charge VAT taxes if Titus comes from Europe.

I think either is good but I'd get from Titus due to him doing his own coatings. Little more conscious to not exceeding the tempering temperature of the base metals and also Zrn has among the better electrical conductivity amongst the coating options (useful for static dissipation/retention).

I don't think the type of coating makes a huge difference though tbh

There have been at least 3 revisions of the brew burr at this point. Not sure how they differ in the cup, I've only had the second one, but it seems like each new revision is able to build more pressure in espresso than the previous one.

Really? like this specific brew burr or you mean the different geometry ones (since LU was initially brew, then they came out with the "Ultra Low Fines" with ditting teeth). Just making sure you mean they keep modding this particular burr. I'm not surprised if so just that's a good thing to know.

Where'd you find this info?

I'm left terrifically unimpressed by "brew" burrs being judged by what they can do with espresso. Espresso can have all the burrs it wants. I just want one set that's optimized for brew with no consideration for espresso at all.
