  1. So I bought this grinder thinking it was suitable for espresso but it isn't, whilst it can go very fine, it's quite slow to grind there and it's stepped so not great for dialling in espresso. It's marvellously well-built, internals very similar to a Helor 101, it feels really really nice in the hand (way nicer than the Lido E I got to replace it). I used it for 2 weeks, there are a couple of slight scratch marks on the front which were from me being a bit careless whilst taking it somewhere in my bag (I should've used the included carry case!!). It comes with the instructions, carry case etc in a very nice box. It costs around £130 new but I'm just looking for now £80 (previously £90) delivered as I know it isn't a big name. There is a comparison here with the smaller slightly less well built model to the comandante: Socractic coffee on instagram did more comparisons with the Timemore Nano that you can check out. I think it really holds its own and is better than anything else in this price range in terms of grind quality and build quality (not to mention looks). some pics:
  2. I need to buy a new manual(travel) grinder for making V60’s. Are there any filter specific manual grinders available. Which grinders work best for filter?
  3. beeb using vintage kyms for years just got europiccola want to upgrade both available at about same price thoughts please dave
  4. I’m set on the idea of handgrinding for espresso as I think the good quality electric grinders tend to be too expensive and over-engineered for my own needs; i.e. just one or two espressos per day. I do want an excellent coffee, but don’t need to make 80 cups per day or enter any barista championships! I have a Feldgrind and I think that does a very good job. Early days with using it for espresso, but I’m liking it a lot so far. But I wonder if I could improve things even further; maybe with a larger burr-set? Or at least get an interesting variation in flavour in the cup if I run two handgrinders? So I was looking at my options for alternatives, under £300. I like the look of the OE Pharos, but I’m also intrigued by the Kinu M47. The Kinu has smaller burrs than the Pharos, but they claim tighter tolerances and better alignment. Does anyone have any idea what difference that might may be in the cup, compared to the Feldgrind? Or have any recommendations? So does anyone have any experience with the Feldgrind, Kinu M47 and or Pharos who could give me some idea of the likely differences I might taste? Thanks!
  5. I have only tried it once before and the burrs seemed to gum up with bits of bean which led me to believe that these grinders really were not designed to do this. However I know there are people on here that do it (so it must be possible) and I'm sure people who can offer some insight into the pros and cons of it. Does it work well, and crucially are the results in the cup better than hand grinding? For example will grinding for v60 with a set of 83mm flats be better than hand grinding with a small conical burr set? The main downside of doing it seems to be the need to switch between grind settings constantly. Needing to re-dial-in espresso etc. etc. However, in my case I have recently come across a solution which would negate this downside. Tl;dr Is it worth investigating grinding for brewed on a Royal?
  6. Newbie here, hello! I recently graduated from the school of Nespresso and am buying locally roasted and ground beans. Keen to progress my coffee education, I’m looking to buy a hand grinder for to use with both a V60 and moka pot. As I understand it, the latter method requires a (slightly?) finer grind. Would the MBK Aerspeed/Aergrind or 1zprsso Q2 be a reasonable purchase, inc ease of swapping between grind sizes? I don’t want to spend more than c£100 as I’ll probably need to buy a second one for my son to take to Uni. All advice and recommendations are welcome. Thanks

    MBK aergrind

    Looking for an aergrind, ordered my Feld2 direct from Knock and honestly don't want the faff again. The price depends on condition, as well as whether it's the original model or the newer one with the metal lid. Preferably black but, as they say, beggars can't be choosers!
  8. After trying a few different methods, I've come to this one as my final version to use as my "portable brewing method", for ease of use mainly (but also minimum effort in use & transport). For portability, I'm using the Tiamo Slim Ceramic Burr hand grinder. Can someone guide me as to the best setting to use in the hand grinder for the Swiss Gold, please? Also, any particular specific method to use with the filter, or just "add coffee, then add water"?
  9. I've had a Feld2 since release a little over a year ago, and just wondering at what rate the burrs wear on these/ in general? Is it something which is pretty much not a factor for home use or will I need to replace at some point in the future?
  10. I'd be interested in a OE Pharos in good condition, if anyone has a second-generation version they want to move on.
  11. What is the minimum budget should be allocated for grinder in order to get a good cup of coffee from Pour-Over&French Press?
  12. For sale black anodized aluminium Hausgrind. Had it for a couple of months, it's probably only nicely run in. Their are some lines inside the catch cup where the main body of the grinder is pushed on to the catch cup. Doesn't seem to be getting worse, I think it was just initial bedding in and it doesn't affect anything that I can see. My assumption is this would happen on all of them. I'm selling because I have a preciso electric grinder for home use and a Feldfarb which seems to achieve similar grind and is more portable. £135 delivered - a slight saving on buying direct. I'm not open to offers, this is something you can buy and know that I'll ship it in a day or two. It will come with the spare O rings you get when buying one new (and hopefully the initial one I've used, I'll have to obviously take the crank arm off to ship it). I still have the wooden box it was shipped in as well. Let me know if any questions. I can add a photo or two tomorrow if needed.

  14. Lookig for handgrinders like lido 2,3,E and E-T. Feldgrind and hausgrind
  15. Hi All, just joined after learning so much from reading loads of threads on machines and grinders and techniques. I was hoping to get some advice from some experts on grinder options. I am looking to get a grinder to pull espresso shots at home. I have around £200 and wanted to get the best option for espresso making. I’m most interested in the best option for straight forward dialling in of new beans, and provides a consistent espresso grind. I have seen pros and cons for the lido e and commandante as hand grinder good options. i have also seen some good and bad reviews of entry level electric burr grinders, notably the sage grinder pro. My question is am I better to go with the likes of the lido e/commandante hand grinders for my needs. Or would something like the sage grinder pro be a good option. I would like to get a couple years use of it. Space is limited in our kitchen, so that would be another factor to consider, we’ll until we win the lottery and get a bigger house. thanks all and any advice would be really appreciated
  16. After some consideration I have come to the conclusion not to enter the bottom of the electric grinder market but to get a higher quality hand grinder. I will be grinding for espresso aeropress and v60. This has led to me considering the Aergrind and Kinu M47 - both of which I can hopefully get new instead of hoping something pops up second hand. My question is to the good people of coffee forums is...which one? Thanks, Steve:)
  17. I've been using my Felgrind for a while now to do Aeropress and V60 and I've been very impressed. I was curious if it's good enough to do espresso grinds and if so what do people recommend as the settings?
