Differences between conical hand grinders when immersion brewing?

Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.

I've been using my hario switch a ton lately and really enjoying it. I've been using my Lido 3-ish (up dated with new adjustment module) and my Pharos for grinding. I get great results and honestly can't tell much of a difference between the two. I'm curious if that's the case with these grinders or would that also likely be the case with other grinds, like say a Comandante or a ZP6 when being used for immersion brewing?

EDIT: comical -> conical

A priest, a rabbi, and a hand grinder walk into a bar..
If a hand grind left New York traveling east at 40 revolutions per minute...
You've been a great audience. Try the cappuccino, and don't forget to tip your barista!

With the comandante things will get bitter very fast, Germans are not so well known for their sense of humor :mrgreen:

All kidding aside, I believe the Comandante is really able to bring out the sweetness and flavour nuances. Think it's a great grinder for pour over.
But I have very little to compare it with, I upgraded from a porlex to a comandante and never looked back. In fact I recently bought a second for dedicated espresso duty without really considering anything else.

So the above is not much use I'm afraid...

What happened with the priest and rabbi again..?? :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

At least you have a good reason for typos. I can't even come up with a good excuse!
