The definitive comparison - Synesso MVP vs Speedster

Yes I would consider others but I've ruled out a slayer and am unsure about the Leva X... I'll be keeping the cremina as a side hustle machine

User Experience with the Strietman CT2

I own a very sharp set of scissors and can cut through 20 Aeropress filters at a time. It takes me literally 3minutes to cut 200 Aeropress filters. I just use a 49mm blind filter rubber disk to cut them around but you could also use a shower screen of filterbasket

Want to upgrade my Timemore C2

I have one on the way. hope to compare it to the K-max I have too. also, to the OP... I talked to 1zpresso. It looks like the X-pro was an attempt to hybridize the Q2 and the JX-pro. The size is half way between a q2 and JX, but it uses 40 mm burrs

The definitive comparison - Synesso MVP vs Speedster

I've had ok coffee from a Mini (I owned one for 1.5 years) but had much better coffee from better grinders.
