Thanks Chencheh- I updated my post, I am using deionized and remineralized filtered water, starting from reasonable tap. I don't believe the water would be the issue, but without diving even deeper into the water game I'm not entirely sure.

For those with experience- Would the lab sweet be literally 2, 3x sweeter with more flavor definition than my HU burrs on the Lagom?

If so, is there a set that would suit the P64?

If not, are there other variables I should explore tweaking?

Reality check - why does "cast" magically make them perform like Lab Sweet burrs?

That is the assumption that's yet to be proven of course. I'm just rooting for that it'll be a good alternative.

It does not - but Hayden has said on the EAF Discord that emulating the Lab Sweet burrs is the goal for these.

Don't think this has been done before - we're trying to see if we can scale down burrs design and emulate any taste profile with a drastically different burr size. It's quite promising (based on early tests) but there're still some aspects we're refining.

Is this grinder going to be purchasable in the US any time soon again? I've been on Prima's waitlist for a while (months?) and have never gotten any emails about it being on sale.

I asked Prima and they told me they expected 100 units to become available in the next few weeks. I imagine they will go super quick so I'm not hopeful on picking one up anytime soon.

Lagom P64 is back in stock at Prima for anyone interested.

Price has increased substantially ($300+). Their email stated that it was due to increased costs.

Unfortunately, Prima only has the standard burr option. Seems a bit shady how Prima knows they have exclusive rights for the US and slap a $700 markup (almost 50%). Wondering if there are any other options for US buyers out there?

That's too bad. I would have jumped on this at the original price. At $2175 I can't justify it for a 64mm flat. This is for my personal, subjective value for the $, I'm sure it still checks many other folks boxes even at the higher price.
