2 cents worth of experience. If your going from a sette to a niche for flavor, your going to be underwhelmed. The my are close im flavor.

What are you buying from Showroom Coffee?

Holy smokes what does your buddy do with all that Crown Royal coffee? I'd love to get my hands on their Crown Jewels. Yeah I now live in Calgary so I have access to Single Origin.

Versalab M4 Unboxing and First Shot

How's the work flow? Is it truly rdt and wdt free? How easy is it to adjust the grind? Are the grind size markers still stickers? Thanks for answering! Been interested in this grind for the supposedly no need for rdt or wdt
