  1. If you decide to sell separately then please let me know as interested in the grinder, thanks
  2. I faced a similar dilemma, went for a hand grinder and pretty soon got bored of having to hand grind all the best one especially when trying to learn soo much. My advice would be to try and get a good second hand electric grinder.
  3. 3rd time lucky and we have a winner!
  4. Good day all. I'm thinking a new basket is in order as the one I have with my Classic is the original and now 12 years old so I'm sure it has seen better days. It will be a double basket to hold between 16-18grams if possible. From my basic understanding am I right thinking that a VMS basket is a bit more forgiving? Has anyone had both and noticed wild differences? And any recommendations on a particular model. Thanks all!

  13. Restoration is definitely something I would like to look at in the future, being a technician by trade taking things apart is like an addiction!
  14. Thank you for all your input, I'm getting the feeling future proofing doesn't exist in the coffee world, they will always make something that will tempt you from your beloved!
