Based on which criteria ?malling wrote:Might just go the Comandante or 1zpresso K rute.
From the pictures published so far Arco burrs are very close to those used by 1zpresso, Italmill too...
Italmill burrs are now in almost any manual conical grinder on the market, what other different offering do you think you can find ?
And generally speaking, as a principle, you can't get another distribution from a manual conical, is just a hype that some model offer better brew grounds. The Kinu grinders using the brew burr didn't noticed any dramatic change in taste, rather a significant increase in grinding time.
If you want absolute paradigm change, try a ghost burrs grinder and will talk later.
Arco value is in the all around balance of the combo, not being optimised for a specific brew type.
There is simply no such offer from other company for a similar combo solution, at any price.
The microns discussions were simply ridiculous jugglery with numbers that are in the same ballpark as the bearings play, and nobody noticed this.
Also, if such numbers would really matter, why nobody did the math for Kinu, to find its settings are 3 time more fine than Arco, and complain about this ? Because really don't matter, and the discussions stepped in the absurd arguing realm.
