MC3 without pre-breakers - upgrade to Shurikone?

Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.

Wondering how it will impact taste without pre-breakers like MC4 and later.
Mazzer now is giving a very rich chocolate flavor which is amazing for darker roast, but not for light roast naturals.

Would appreciae any thoughts if tried Shurikone without pre-breakers. Thanks a lot!

Your question has caught me. I am however not understanding you. Please break it down. I have a Mazzerr Super Jolly burr based grinder and wish to understand the gist of your question.

I'd suggest posting this on the Kafatek forum. Probalby have users who have done this on a MC3.

I upgraded my MC3 to Shurikones and then upgraded again to a MC4.
But I don't use light roasts. So, I'm unable to answer that part of your question.

I did find improvement going to the Shurikones and again going to a MC4.

If I were in your situation, rather than purchase the Shurikones, I think I'd get in line for the latest version of the MC.
