I must say that I’m a bit worried about all this fiasco in trying to purchase a Kafetek grinder.

 

I really want a flat, I’ve looked at all the options and have made my mind up that that’s the grinder I want.

I was intending to purchase one from this latest window but then got the email that only conicals and the max was being produced this time round. I’m disappointed, but with the frequency of pre-order windows coming up and the ever increasing difficulties of actually trying to get one ordered I’m worried that by the time I do actually manage to order one, I’ll be in my 60’s!

 

The thing is, if I experience too much of this nonsense then I’ll just think sod it and buy a EK instead...

ZM, ZM, ZM :exit:

To me that's a cat-sized space.. Though with Minty around I'm sure that space would soon increase as things are sent flying :classic_laugh:

I have been considering an upgrade to my grinder, it needs to be a single-dose unit, well engineered, suitable for grinding anything from espresso to pour-over, and obviously makes a good brew!

I have considered a EK43, however the more I read the more i'm put off by all the faff of aligning the burrs and even having to upgrade them, then there is issue of it not being the best choice if I want to grind from espresso to pour-over.

Is the Monolith flat a good choice for what I want?  i.e. is it good for espresso -  pour-over??

Ordering and getting one I  realise is an issue.

It would definitely be a good option @duc996bp but as you say, it’s getting hold of one. They sometimes come up second hand, more so on the H-B forum ;) I know a good few people who have gone for the EK but  don’t rule out some of the other too end grinders of which maybe @coffeechap can chip in with some info about :)

Seriously consider the mazzer ZM I have really enjoyed using mine and if it were not for the fact I have a ZM electronic on route I would be keeping it!

Mr Puff is in the house! Really effective at expelling any remaining coffee. As a side effect it makes for a noticeable reduction in noise, not that the MC3 was loud in the first place.
