Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.
Anyone with a P100, does the spout spring back when you press it? I thought this was an anti-retention mechanism, but my unit's spout will press down with some force, but not spring back up on its own.
Have you operated the spout spring while the motor is running/the grinder is discharging grounds? If so, you can get ground stuck in the gap, unfortunately. If you log onto the EAF Discord there was just a discussion on it last night: https://discord.com/channels/7269855440 ... 0042022932
I don't think I did. Just got it today. But, it was an easy fix to unscrew the top, remove the set screw that holds the chute, and then adjust the spring screws.
Has anyone tested the alignment and shimmed this grinder? If so, how did it go for you?
They seem to be aligned to about 20-30 microns from the factory. Option-O recommends against trying to shim and so on, I think.
I think I remember a while back people being able to get a p100 without burrs. Anyone know if that was a limited deal or what the price was?
That was while there was the SSP burr shortage. Right now there's a shortage of P100s (compared to demand), rather than burrs. You could always try emailing them and asking
Received my P100 with HU burrs and so far its a marked step up from my Specialita. Strikes a balance between the high clarity almost to a fault of the B Plus with great clarity at lower RPM. My first venture out into the premium grinder universe and not disappointed. The unit is a beast and looks the part though it does have a sleek modern look. I did notice that the base plate on my unit doesn't fit all the way into the body. It seems to get stuck about a couple mils out maybe due to misalignment of the two prongs on the plate (look to be a bit more narrowly spaced than the holes in the body). Is this normal or should I check with Option O on this?
I'd email them
I don't want to derail the thread as this isn't the main topic of discussion, but I just wanted to say that RDT is not a necessary step as an MC4 owner.PrincePolo82 wrote:I want an endgame grinder and I'm not open to considering the Monolith Conical given the RDT annoyance.
