Sort Of Thinking About An Upgrade . . .


Recommended Posts

Easy to swap beans?

 

Well, no! The distance from the bottom of the hopper to the inner workings is quite deep (and narrow). Sounds to me like we need something else for those de caff beans at supper time :)

Yeah start another mystery thread!

 

I will once I know Ian has caught up . . . Actually, it is his birthday quite soon too. I am sure he needs something coffee-grinder-ish to play with :)

Sounds like a glass tube and a weight may be next on the purchase list, might be worth an ask of E8 owners for their thoughts (may also stave off another grinder purchase, eek!)

Just checked with the vernier, it's 45mm (and a smidgen), quite an unusual, narrow diameter. There can't possibly be anything that will fit. Fancy that!

Borosilicate tubes, you might find one on eBay to fit.

 

Nice grinder btw ;)

 

it could be my next upgrade too

 

Nooooo! You can find anything to fit. Not anywhere. Ever! The very thought :)

 

Thank you. I am impressed by everything about it. Just taken a single dose to get rid of any stale coffee then did a double - 18.2g this time, not far off what I got last night (18g). To be honest I would expect to be impressed after my Mini M, it's twice the price (just about) for starters.

 

For me, my set up, the kitchen etc I'm really glad I went with the E8.

 

Thank you all again for your valuable input, you were a great help :)

It was the next best thing to buying a grinder for one's self! Thanks for inviting us to share the decision making and excitement Mildred

 

Thanks! It was great fun all round :)

 

Just to let you know I am going to send your beans on their way this morning. It's an A4 Jiffy envelope so it probably won't fit through your letterbox.

if you want to single dose, this looks a good option to me:

been tempted to get one myself, but i don't change beans enough at the moment to justify it

 

It looks like a dinky little machine!

 

I don't think I can justify the next grinder I have on my shopping list (I am not sure I even know the meaning of the word 'justify'!!)

 

Good to hear you think highly of the E8 too :)
