Single-boiler E61+PID espresso machine: A rude awakening about temperature stability

New Eureka Mignon Single Dose Grinder

So plants, microwave On a more serious note, I'm not sold, it still seem like a half baked product and then they added a metal base to hold the dosing cup more firmly and put it closer to the spout.

G-IOTA / DF64 espresso grinder

Likewise - tempted to go from my DF64 to Niche as the workflow and build quality of the DF64 is annoying me. Particularly the retention when going from filter to espresso and back.. minor things, but keen to try the niche I'm using SSP brew burrs V1, so no shortage of clarity, haven't even tried the DF64 stock burrs so...
