Must say having put 10kg through mine today it has settled down. I am super impressed with the build quality and am working on the best way to use this. I noticed others having a horrendous time with the flat, however what I have notice is that you can set the speed to give you 1g per second then use it like you would on on demand with approx 50g of beans in the hopper and this stops thebpopcorning which you get with any single dosing and prevents the chaff that flats are prone to when single dosing. The cost is that you have to put up with .5 - 1g retention, however the grind consistency is then up there with the very best grinders I have ever used.

I'm curious how the Monolith Flat and / or Conical perform for brewed coffee, and if they're anything as good as an EK43? Also can they grind fine enough for Turkish? I'm thinking if this is the only grinder out there that can compare to the EK43, but also has a more home friendly form factor..

These look amazing grinders , I am really in a quandary at which one I prefer , flat or conical .

 

still I can’t afford one of these beasts at the moment so not losing too much sleep making my decision.
