Fellow Ode brew grinder review

So I contacted the website I'm looking at buying from (alternativebrewing) and asked for them to clarify if the white model comes with the v2 burrs, and to my surprise the response was yes, I even asked definitely not 1.1 but 2 and was told yes V2, but now I'm not even sure if it is the v2 burrs or

Ok great thanks for the feedback. You have the lab sweet burrs on your 804 right? How does the taste of espresso differ between the 1203 machined burrs and the 804 lab sweet burrs?

The Picopresso

And another update to the Picopresso with IMS competition La Pavoni post millennium 14-16g basket.
