  1. Ok interesting, this might call for a little tear down at some point! Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  2. Hi all, Dont suppose anyone has any experience with the f10 or similar and knows any solutions to its clumping. It definitely isn't the worst i have dealt with but every little helps. Cheers Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

  4. Burrs need to be made from fairly high carbon steel so are rarely truly stainless unfortunately. Usually you can run some easy cook rice through to pull oils/gummy grinds out. Also it is quite easy to wind the burrs the whole way out for cleaning.
  5. Back Story: I was expecting quite a downgrade from my old Aergrind - replaced because WFH is now normality so i don't need a high end travelling kit really. Doesn't feel like a direct downgrade, just more plasticy Early impressions: Capacity is good (maybe 20-25g) - not the 30g they advertise but that was always going to be an 'up to' with some tiny dense African bean I guess. No bearings which i thought would be a downgrade from a stability and smoothness perspective but the housing for the shaft that holds the burr is a good tight fit so i don't see this being a huge issue and it is also very smooth (though maybe not bearing smooth). Maybe most impressed by how quickly it powers through beans though. Given the burrs aren't huge I was expecting similar speed to the Aergrind as they have got the same burr set but (maybe because brand new, maybe because better feeding mechanism) it absolutely powered through them. It took maybe half the time I would usually spend grinding 15g and at way too fine of a grind setting. I also really love the aesthetic, the plastic is just that, doesnt have the slightly rubberised tactile feel the i think you would expect looking at the pictures but it does look great, fits quite nicely inside an aeropress. I am a bit unsure on the lid still, it doesnt really snap into place as you'd expect, there is just a little rim on the rubber which creates a friction fit - it also doesnt sit flush with the top of the grinder (by design, not sure if i agree with the design choice) It also means that when you are attaching the handle, the little notch that fits into the grind selector gets caught on the lid - easily pushed over but just a tad annoying. I really enjoy how the handle looks and feels, how it selects grind and fits onto the grinder, and its holding mechanism on the side + top. I can take some pics if people are keen
  6. Well mine arrived today and I am pleasantly surprised
  7. Haha! The cupboard was from Wayfair, worth noting though that it has a bit of lateral wobble to it. I have added some reinforcement brackets in the corners so should be safe but i guess it is just by virtue of the fact that other than the top panel which is real, it is mostly made of that cheap chipboard and it is holding quite a bit of weight Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  8. Hopefully not breaking any forum rules by arranging a sale in a non sale forum🙄. If so I guess admin feel free to repremand etc and apologies in advance
  9. I have an MBK Aergrind that I would let go for £75 - capacity sits somewhere between 20-30g so might not be big enough for your purpose but it has served me v well and the grind quality is great Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  10. I used to have one of these and there is a way to adjust the range that it is grinding at. Involves taking off the adjustment knob but fairly easy to do Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  11. Just moved into a new place with the girlfriend which obviously called for a proper coffee station. For £150 odd im chuffed Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  12. I am fairly certain you can bring the burrs to touching on this grinder, I have one which i used to use for spro but it ran into issues with the motor slipping because it struggled at those fine grinds (incidentally they offered me a replacement which ended up being an upgrate to the smart grinder pro ). If that isnt your issue then you should be able to get it adjusted that fine and grind, stupid question but are you definitely going in the right direction with the internal adjustments?
  13. Sort of hijacked the post here too haha Is say benefits of on demand are: everything Benefits of traditional doser: none (but often much cheaper and easily modified) Experience: used a beautiful ceado e7 doser for a couple of years, grind was lovely, finish was immaculate, ceado steady lock tech was great. Still couldn't hack the doser The mazzer major electronic and compak f10 i have had since have been a night and day difference in experience. once you're dialed in, obviously you still check the weight after you grind, it is so much less faff and waste. retention is usually low enough that you dont reallyyy need to worry despite what we might all like to think. i still run a short purge if i havent used it in say 24h. Similarly for totally doserless, if that's what budget permits then experience will be largely similar, just need to commit a bit more effort to weighing Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  14. Kind of to be fair but if you're buying used then it becomes very relevant. Also just as far as the categorisation on websites of doser Vs doserless, that's what the distinction usually is Should really specify 'on-demand' vs totally doserless Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  15. Not sure i really agree with the response above, doser usually suggests a manual cylindrical doser with a paddle to dose the coffee into portafilter. Doserless almost always entails some kind of electronic dosing system in high ish end grinders (anything but small kitchen appliances) which is always more expensive than a manual doser model, but as previously mentioned in low end grinders it can just have zero control on this front.
