+1 when I have the opportunity, comparing coffees on different grinders is really interesting!

I don't have a big issue with my Major, mostly just space.

I also don't intend to outright replace my Major. I'm for sure going to get a Sette alongside it, and if I find it works well for what I want out of espresso, I MIGHT consider getting another.
