hi folks, im looking to get 2 new grinders one for espresso-on a quickmill rapida machine and one for pour over on my wife's hario V60 currently im using a Mazzer super jolly (the doserless grocery version) and switching grind settings back to back, which is annoying and not really smart gonna sell the mazzer cause i never liked it and had issues with grind size and inconsistency i dont really know what is better and what is an huge upgrade from this grinder im currently using my budget is something between 500-800-ish for both grinders, the grinder for the V60 can be handgrinder if its worth it anyone here willing to help me and ready for really stupid questions?
After being messed about with the courier, and a stressful few days, my package finally arrived albeit completely battered and with a massive hole in it. Thankfully, the machine doesn't appear to be damaged at all. Initial impressions (before I've even had time to sample any shots!): + It's massive, it completely dwarves my Sage DTP and even my Casadio Enea (which I used to think was big!) It even feels bigger than Rob's Veloce mk1 - even though mine has a smaller boiler - could be imagining this though. + It feels really well built, and I think it looks damn sexy. + I'm definitely going to need to put it on a better table, this old ikea desk looks like it's struggling under the weight and it tips with the lever if I don't hold the portafilter (though the machine stays planted to the desk). It's less bad now that it's filled with water, but still. + The accessories seem a bit sparse, there's not even a cheap tamper to go with it. I had to buy the bottomless separately, hence the handle doesn't match the other ones. All the instructions were in Italian, so lets hope I'm doing this right! Anyway, whilst it warms up for the first time, here are some pics. Apologies for the construction site that is my kitchen at the moment: Looking forward to starting my lever adventure and sharing it with you guys!
almost final setup, custom made table and 3d printed accessories just need to repaint the wall and hang something on it really enjoy this machine, after switching from filtered water to tap water (really hard water) it produces really lovely coffee
