Might be worth selling my lido 3 and aerspeed for this. My lido 3 doesn't get used as much as it should but having something I could really dial in for espresso would be nice. Love their outside the box thinking on this one.

Nice!

I looked but don't see a quick answer to my question. I only know OG to stand for 'old gangster'. Is that the intended meaning here?

I think it's more like *original* gangster/gangsta, but maybe there's more to it from their perspective? Will ask.

edit: They confirmed and said "optimized grinder" is an intended meaning also.

I saw that today. I really like the design on this. Basically if the Fixie, Lido, and Pharos had a 47mm conical baby.
