There's a lot of cool and useful features coming on this one. I'm excited to see it land. I've been allowed to see renditions, but am mum on the details till it launches.

I have to say I'm pretty excited about this.I have been able unable to pull the trigger on one of these for a while now.I have been using a Pharos 2.0 for quite a while now and have been really annoyed with the grind adjustment.the problem is I can still grind16 grams of espresso in 10 seconds which I believe is faster than HG1 .If the new version can up to speed a little and stabilize the upper burr l'll be pulling my money out!

I want to say I'm excited about the HG-2, but--and this is an understatement--I already have too many hand grinders. If it's less gigantic than its predecessor, I'd be marginally more interested. 8)

Hummm...
I wonder if they'll offer a "Trade-Up" program?
I know I 'should' keep my HG-1 as an example of recent modern art... but...

Man I hope this doesn't get much more expensive than the HG-1.

I don't think the grind quality will be much different at all if the burrs remain unchanged and I don't really want to spend more money for the same result in the cup.

It'll definitely be more expensive with the gear box setup. From their post the gear box looks really polished and I feel that its easily $300 more than HG-1. That being said, I think you can still by HG-1 from Craig Lynn studio. I'm wondering if HG-1 will be exclusively sold through Craig Lynn and Hg-2 through Weber workshop moving forward

Oh, I thought the HG-2 would replace the HG-1.

At the moment it seems like it is sold out everywhere.

I think the idea of the transmission is for ease of grinding, not necessarily the result in the cup.
