Allure of Espresso vs. Drip

I'm guessing, and purely guessing, that it may be related to my perception that it's much easier to pull undrinkable shot after shot with hundreds or thousands invested than it is to end up with an undrinkable pour-over or immersion brew with even shop-ground coffee and $10 in gear.

Old Coffee

Yes, a Monolith is worth it

Having a conical with a large flat is an i teresting pairing (if you can afford it) so that you broaden the taste profiles one can extract at home. Having the possibility to swap burrs with one grinder is also another option - less costly that also increase the range of taste possible.

Eureka 75mm burrs

Thanks Jim, this is true and a good point. I roast a couple times a week and I have never observed this trend in the year I have owned this grinder, which is why I was thinking it could be the burrs.
