My current Gaggia Classic is a pain to pull a decent shot to say the least, my barista skills are not that limited as I use to pull espressos from commercial machines since I was 10 in my dads bars, long time ago, different times.
I did quite a bit of research on this grinder and didn't read that anywhere regarding light / medium roasts, my buddy has the same grinder and uses a med roast with bezzera duo and shots are bang on.
Sure you are qualified! We are all giving our opinions from our perspectives and our biased pros and cons. Another member here said going from his sette to mignon was a great upgrade! Good to know that your friend is pulling great shots with medium coffee, i am thinking i may have read it for the mignon machine and not the new specialita.
Going from Mignon to something like the atom 75 is more than 2x as much in cost! So i am thinking i will probably end up with this one.
You can see how the grinds come out their fineness and once you get your profitec pro 700 (2019 model i am assuming with the pid upgrade already in place) then you can update what kinda beverages you are enjoying.
You got the black model? is matte black or gloss? is the trim chrome or black? Perhaps attach some photos
