Ben Piff from Clive emailed me and said that production starts in January and they are supposed to have their first shipment in March.
I'm interested in this grinder as it is the only grinder I have seen that may challenge the Monolith's for the home barista. Pricing needs to stay below $1,500 with the Mythos Burrs to make it a contender. I'm assuming that both models (Atom Specialty 65E and 75E) will eventually replace the Zeneth 65e and Olympus 75e which would make the Atom a 3-tiered grinder for the home barista (60 / 65 / 75 mm burr options).
My gut tells me that it won't be any better than other grinders in its class when speced with the mythos burrs (K30, E37S, K10, etc). Given the regular Atom is $870, then maybe they can come in around $1200 with the top specced model?
