Upgrade from Mini Vivaldi ii and Eureka Specialita

One thing to keep in mind is that when one buys 75mm Titanium Eureka Burrs this is what you get: {image} I haven't done a side by side against SSP 64mm burrs but the Mythos burrs are pretty decent. I currently have a Mini Vivaldi and have gone through a bunch of flat burr grinders (Vario, Atom original, Atom Original...

Dual grinder combo: Niche Zero (espresso) & Baratza Vario+ Steel Burr (filter) - thoughts?

That you have! And much appreciated. Let's see... definitely "lazy" in the long run. I'm currently in the "super interested and too much time on my hands" phase but life is about to resume early next year and I want no fuss. RDT would suck. No thanks. Also, minimal mess with grounds is desirable, it's too easy for that to...

Upgrade from Mini Vivaldi ii and Eureka Specialita

If you want to see what the buzz around flat-burr grinders is about, I'd go with a Lagom P64 or pick up a used Super Jolly and put SSP burrs into it. The Eureka burrs seem to be very good, classic burrs. Various reports suggest that they aren't in the same vein as those that people are exploring with the...

New Ikawa Home Roaster - 100g capacity

Fellow Ode brew grinder review

I see, so basically it goes ode stock > Vario steel > ode ssp in terms of progressively more "unimodal" (aka tight/consistent extraction). I definitely want tighter grind for brew than what I am getting on my niche zero or virtuoso, but, I might fall into the camp, then, of those who complain the ssp unimodal are overly hollow and...

Northbound American Beauty espresso

From what I remember, AB leans a bit lighter on the medium spectrum so 18g will be a scant one. I don't know why you'd be splitting hairs on half a gram from your usual dose though. It's not like trying to weigh out 18g of Malabar Gold to see it's overflowing your dosing cup due to it's low density....

Spro Over - hard on machine pump?

Zix, wondering if you got around to trying this. If so, what were the results like and the process used? My CT2 is on the way so I've been reading up and learning before it arrives. Thanks.
