I pair my CT2 with an EK43.

But have borrowed a Flat Max, and a Titus Nautilus.

I think a silver Lagom P100 would look great with it.

Tom, thanks. I'm about to order the Lavi. How do you like it?

Also, what's your guys work flow like with the Strietman? Needle/Wedge/Tamp, all of the above? :lol:

Just posted this:

Malwani Livi

Re workflow, I certainly always RDT and WDT regardless of the grinder.
Some people drink coffee to wake up, I wake up to drink coffee.

I only do RDT when the burrs aren't seasoned yet. After seasoning I've never found it to be necessary anymore as it gave no noticable difference anymore. I had this with my last 4 grinders but that also depends on the climate where you live in.

I have a P64.
I used RDT which seems to help the mess.
I use WDT for my 58mm pump machine but just don't see any point or efficient way to do it with my CT1.

The basket is so small I feel that I am just fiddling with it.

Just out of curious out, has any owner put sliding feet or sliding mat under the ct2 to make it easier to move in and out from under cabinet for use? If so, how well does it work? Is it still stable and does it move when pulling a shot? Thanks. Trying very hard to justify making this purchase!

Sliding in and out does not require any special feet.

What does the ct2 rest on, as in what makes contact with the counter/table? Thanks!

The machine rests on 4 rubber pads and is light enough to be easily moved.

Do you mean by sliding or by picking it up? Thanks for the clarification!
