I'm looking at the flat right now, but would rather have a conical.

Flat has adjustable speeds . The allure , to those who lust after them , is that he aligns each one and test each one individually using his taste buds and a vst . Not sure on the burrs he is suing tho , was compak ones for the conical.

Is it worth the cash , who knows , , with import and the exchange rate i'd say probably not , but then again i am not in the espresso game ,so it all look over priced to me :).

He uses Mythos burrs mounted at the same 45 degree angle. I know about the variable speed motor. Be interesting to put it up against a Mythos

None available now. Price aside I like it. The compact size, very low retention, single dosing and precision manufacturing are the appealing features to me. Something similar with EK burrs would be nice. If only the exchange rate were 2:1

Surely these are wonderful grinders and the flat is very sexy :) the price on the other hand gives me a flat :D


The peculiarity of espresso beverage is the simultaneous presence of three dispersed phases coexisting within a matrix, namely a concentrated solution of salts, acids, sugars, caffeine and many other hydrophilic substances. These phases are: an emulsion of oil droplets, a suspension of solid particles and an effervescence of gas bubbles, which evolves into a foam.

I know there's a lot of hype about how great this grinder is but surely I can't be the only one that thinks it's not exactly aesthetically pleasing?

He uses Mythos burrs

Although clearly properly machined it does have a bit of a prototype look about it and in my opinion could be made to look better finished.

 

"The Monolith Flat burr grinder is designed around 75mm Titanium Nitride coated flat burrs. Burrs we use have very small inner diameter so effective cutting surface length is close to the cutting surface of 80mm and 83mm diameter burrs. Big burrs in smaller package". Looks like they are the same diameter as Mythos but maybe a smaller centre so larger area. I'm not sure how that relates to the above picture.

There is supposed to be a version with more general purpose burrs rather than espresso, which should be suitable for filter. Anyone know when it's coming?

Kafatek website quotes for the existing burr set

 

  • Grind from the finest Turkish coffee to French Press, Espresso, Mocha, and Filter coffee

 

I'm sure I have read customer reviews where users have been happy with switching between espresso and filter grind.

No, don't be ridiculous !!!!

 

However that doesn't rule out the possibility that I managed to nab a conical. :act-up:
