I will try to find more burr comparison pics to add to this thread. Even burrs on their own (no comparisons) could be useful.

Might be interesting to have the EK-43 burrs in here, and maybe some speciality ones like the Vario Steel brew-only burrs.

The vario steel burrs are coarse grind only, not suitable for espresso at all. And the ceramic one's are the opposite.

Agreed. They are both mentioned in the Vario information sentence :)

What are the advantages and disadvantages of flat burrs and conical burrs? Ie which is better?

 

That is a matter of debate, each has its advantages. There are a few here who have tried most of the grinders on the top end of the market in both flat and conical. I think conical burrs tend to retain more coffee, making them less suitable for the home user, but the pip the flat burrs in terms of flavour in the cup.

Matter of preference and choice.

comes down to personal taste and what you want out of a grinder.

Low rentention , ability to deliver high extraction yields... List goes on . No two people taste the same - people like differing styles of espresso and extractions.

What's " Best "will only be for that person ...

There is a general agreement that nothing can beat the taste of the big conicals e.g robur,k10 (huge retention is granted). This though is somehow changing now with the huge flats, the ek being the major leader of this change.

But big conicals are not really big as most have around 68 mm burrs whereas plenty of flat burrs are 83 going up to the 120 size on the Compak

That all depends those burrs seem to work far better in a Hausgrind or a Lido 1 than in their motorised cousins.


Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment. Because you have to deal with everyone that doesn't have it !!!

I've put together an album to show the difference between a set of old well-worn burrs and a new set which I thought might be of use to someone.

I have heard about the hybrid burrs but having a bit of a time wrapping my head around the idea. Anyone have a picture? Versalab have hybrid burrs?
