Espresso scale with timer, best for price?

Bought the original Brewista when it came out and it made it about 2-years, maybe a little more, before it died. Then bought the Brewista II and its generally been a good scale with a couple caveats: In addition to using it for daily dosing and weighing espresso as its pulled I also use it a few times a year when camping and it doesn't like being cold (someone tested the Lunar for me by putting it...

Thanks. Interesting since the reviews on Clive coffee are not good and lots on A-zon are not good either. I may take a chance on one. I sometimes wonder about quality changing over the years of production. Regards.

Coffee Beans Storage

+1 for Airscape containers, as well. Been using them for over three years now...great product.

Niche zero or...

The convenience of single dosing and the ability to switch beans from cup to cup cannot be overstated. My Niche Zero replaced a Compak K10 and I haven't looked back even for a second. There is no (non-manual) grinder at this price point that can perform this well for single dosing espresso. It's really market disrupting...if a flat version were to be released at a similar price point in the future...

I love mine! It's been a little over a year and I have yet to find something I don't like about it.

Coffee Beans Storage

+1 for the Airscape. They work good and have stainless canisters or ceramic. I've had mine for a few years and work like new.

What is wow'ing you?

So Molinari Caffe and Ritual, perhaps? Haven't observed that it's a California thing...there's just lots of variation between shops and you got a couple of the more generous ones.

Only manual grinders. Some of the Eurekas aren't too wastefuls.

Niche zero or...

Lately I have been eyeing up the Niche Zero. It has gotten a lot of positive remarks, and seems to be the "new hotness". I primarily drink medium to darker roasts, make one to two espressos at a time, and like the ability to single dose as opposed to loading a happier full of beans. I have heard that with some of the grinders that use a hopper, they need to be about 1/4 full to get consi...

Baratza Virtuoso fineness adjustment

Following because I am having this same issue. I took the thing apart to clean it about a week ago, and now it only grinds very coarse. I have disassembled reassembled the thing 3x now - no broken tabs on the burr holder, tabs in the correct orientation - and ridiculously coarse-ground beans every time I've used it since. I'd been contemplating upgrading to a Forte BG anyway, but if this is a simp...
