This should be convenient to use


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'm interested to see how the crank arm attaches...

I'd be extra cautious if it was a screw in type as cross threading it would lead to plenty of tears.

Though I'm quite sure this has been thought about!

"[email protected] the whole crank arm and dial lid assembly lifts off in one piece. Unlike the Feld 1, and now the Aergrind, this is not built as a travel grinder. The weight is sub 700g."

It won't be screw in, it's keyed to the shaft so it just lifts off with the dail-lid in one piece -

Is it my imagination or does that look like a dial from a Hausgrind in the background, on a similar integrated lid/ crank arm assembly like the Feld2?

 

Could a new Haus2 be in the offing too?

Was hoping to use this for travelling, bit rubbish if the handle can't be removed.

 

Mine will be for sale after I receive it in X months

What’s the difference apart from size then to the Aergrind?

 

What does this give you that the aergrind doesn’t ?

Well they did write on the product page that this is no longer their travel grinder, with the Aergrind taking that position. Sounds like that will be better for you.

 

PLEASE NOTE - whilst the feldgrind has traditionally been our travel grinder, this new build has a fixed handle and lid design, so whilst light enough to travel with, it doesn't pack down quite as easily. The aergrind is now our dedicated travel design and packs down very well, and is specially sized to fit in and around the aeropress.

About that unfinished top - although it hasn't been shown in the photos it will get an enamel dial pointer. From the just instagram'd artwork I reckon it could look something like this -

Really not into the new design of the pointer. I much prefer the simplicity of the Hausgrind enamel top.

 

The pointer only needs to be above the word "Knock", everything below is redundant and is just distracting. I think it's a shame he hasn't gone for something simpler that fits the purely functional and minimal aesthetic of his overall design.

Yeah I know what you mean, I didn't much like it at first but it's starting to grow on me. I think the idea of the large pointer is to represent the inside of the bearing housing, with the 'O' being the bearing. Not a bad way to go but I have always liked the minimal look of the Haus dial, he got that spot on and I hope he goes with something similar for 'Haus2'.
