https://www.shapeways.com/product/GB9H9Y8GY/bodum-bistro-burr-holder-0-8mm-finer-grind Has anyone here tried this replacement part to improve the Bodum Bistro? The Bodum has a espresso setting that gives quite a uniform grind that is about 0.750 mm under the microscope. Ideally it should be between 1/3 - 1/2 of that size from the conical burrs. Thanks, Alistair
Hello.. I recently decided to get a "real" coffee machine since I drink so much instant. (I tried to post in the new members section but it told me I was using more than 65,000 characters!) I picked up a De'Longhi 410 combo machine on ebay for €10 so I can't go wrong even if it's total crap. Then I started to get worried the more I researched grinders. I was going to pick up a cheap blade one, then read how crap they were, heard that burrs were good.. then read how crap most of the cheap ones are! Anyway I settled on a €50 Bodum Bistro 10903 with a conical burr.. Not expecting great espresso but I'll mess around for a while and see how I get on, and maybe mod it for a finer grind eventually. I quite enjoy taking things apart. That said, I've never even made "proper" coffee before, though I've been researching for a few days now, so I suppose I'll be able to throw one together anyway. So.. Any do's and don'ts for me? Any tips on which coffee beans to buy? (Or already ground? I assume, NO!) I quite like dark instant with two good spoons of coffee, but not that fine light powdered stuff (that usually ends up being 3-4 spoons). And I really hate the cheap coffee that has an "orangey" taste to it. SuperValu do a great 95c jar of dark instant coffee, so I'm hoping to top that. Reckon the Bodum grinder will at least partially work for espressos? It seems (from the interwebs) that most manufacturers are full of crap about their "espresso" grinders. Is this true?
