Definitely exciting! Pour overs for now (mainly v60), but looking at a DE1+.

One thing I have learned recently though with Monoliths... when trying to grind really fine, it's best to use just the minimum. Too much and you can stall your flow when trying to grind really fine... At least with the FlatSSP. I haven't pushed my Max that hard yet. Yet. But I will.

Yea, Dennis recommends just one spray of water on beans for 16g doses and under and 2 sprays for doses over 16g prior to grinding from the RDT spray bottle that he supplies with all of his Monolith grinders.

No, bought one from the Feb 2020 batch from a member on the Kafatek forums.
