Doesn't this 90 degree design require additional complexity of gears to send power from a horizontal motor to conical burrs, same as Sette for example. Are there other practical reasons to choose this path? Did they pick this orientation only to avoid ending up with an Opus?

So far, the engineering from Option-O hasn't been worth second guessing. Gear or belt reduction, in general, allows torque multiplication when reducing speed.

I'm thinking the Casa could be a complementary grinder to my 01. Used for more traditional espresso and darker roasts.
Is this a good idea? I have also thought about the Niche, but I really don't like their design.
