Now I feel like there's an entirely unexplored world of coffee out there that's just opened up to me. Can't wait
Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.
The levercraft almost certainly offers something above and beyond the SJ in the cup, but I have yet to find a coffee that can't be made well on a well loved Superjolly. I hit 24.8% EY on TW Echemo yesterday with a SJ and it was fantastic.Word_salad wrote:As someone who is currently trying to tame a super jolly this is a dangerous post for me to read
I am hoping to have a levercraft in the near future so I can personally showdown on why big burrs and speed are important in the cup.

What is this hyperalignment process you speak of?
Are you able to quote the text you are referring to?
Here's the quote of that post. He's referring to the Forte being hyperaligned, which is discussed in this threadmwebber wrote:Haha, I wish! This hobby would be a lot more sustainable if you didn't get what you pay for. For what it's worth, the Forté has earned a permanent place in my kitchen for its remarkable ease of use, weight-based grinding, and world-class filter grind quality (after hyperalignment). For that matter, so has the Ultra... Both represent excellent value-for-money in their respective price ranges, and I won't stop recommending the Forté to anyone whose budget does not allow for an Ultra in their kitchen.
Hi Eric, when can we expect the video to be online?DucaiMann wrote: We will be doing a direct comparison video between the two burr sets. That way we can clear up a lot of this speculation about which is superior for what etc (especially since everyone assumes they perform the same in different grinder platforms, which I dont think is entirely true, especially given alignment differences). I'll make sure we do it across a range of roasting levels as well!

It seems to me to be a great concept and good value. So I don't see what is all so undesirable. The only thing that stands out to me is thin metal and a few sharp edges here and there. I'm good at banging my hands into things accidentally, I'd prefer rounded edges and slightly thicker material in certain places.
