For the money that they cost, I think it's reasonable to ask for a little more than that!
From memory, on the decent espresso machine forum, I think someone with the "low fines" or "ultra low fines" version commented that they are significantly different for espresso, with a very narrow useable range/high sensitivity to adjustment (bad) and that they sort of led to generic chocolatey flavours.
Pulling at around 5.5 for epsresso would seriously put my alignment in doubt.
Do you and Luke have the same of the various options of SSP burrs? Looks like there are now four versions: high uniformity, low uniformity, low fines and cast. I didn't find SSP's descriptions here
very informative and got nothing useful or constructive from the Australian importer, so before I pony up for one of them, I'd like to actually read some sort of informative experience from people.
