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

Haven't seen this mentioned or discussed here yet but I saw this on OE's Instagram. Looks like they took the build style of the Fixie and mixed it with the adjustment style of a Pharos.

Really neat and interesting idea. I look forward to seeing how this plays out in the final version. Might end up being like a lighter/more compact Lido 3.

Yes, I do like the look of the adjustment system. Barb & Doug were good about replying to questions re: details in the comments under that Instagram post. It's something to look forward to this year.

Could you share screen shots? I don't have Instagram, just check a few companies every so often.

Are the OG using the same Etzinger Lido 3 /Fixie burr?

^^^ Yes, same Etzinger burrs as the Lido series, as they confirm under that Instagram post.

OE has made a few more updates on social media. For example, here's the latest pic sent via Twitter:

For more, again, see Instagram; no, I won't be posting screen shots of publicly available info. :roll:

A few details scraped from Instagram comments:

- Height = 27 cm (vs. 34 cm for Lido 3)
- Weight = similar to Lido 3
- Expected availability: mid-March
- An OG dosing funnel will be available (included? not sure...) that will fit the Robot's basket
- Hopper is aluminum with a silicone cover and threaded end plates, allowing disassembly without changing alignment
- Independent coarse and fine adjustment systems

There's also a placeholder site w. backstory: https://www.oehandgrinders.com/lido-og-.html

iirc, they have a nicer zippered travel case for the OG as well. I think I saw that on one of their Instagram posts?

I like it. Fixie looks sweet and now so too does the OG. Since I recently got the Niche Zero, I don't need another grinder but it is tempting...
