Not a Versalab or a Monolith then?

 

Sorry yea, I actually just came back in here to edit and say "Unless you want to spend thousands"

It’s such an open question that, unless the OP specify some parameters, the question is simply pointless.

 

Parameters I’d expect:

 

- manual or electric

- price bracket

- primary use (espresso, filter, etc)

- size

well £1000 to £1500

 

Still the Niche Zero.

 

Your talking £2k+ I think before any of the other options come to the table.

 

There are a few manual grinder options as well if thats your thing. You can also modify some ex commercials for decent single dosing, but I'm not sure any of them are a sensible choice over the Niche.

 

edit: answering the question in the post above yours will help with answers, if your main brew method was filter then you probably dont need to spend that much at all for example.

Honne by Hedone:

 

https://www.kaffee-netz.de/threads/hedone-honne-muehle.111655/

 

It's basically a well aligned versalab at around 1k. Can't be beat if you don't want to spend Titus or Monolith money.

 

Hmmm interesting . . .

Is that before or after the results of your niche comparison testing?;)

Precisely! But you never know the Niche could be the one. Ek43s rarely come up at robs prices!

You can read more about the grinder in the Romanian forums. Basically 90% of the coffee enthusiasts have ditched higher end commercial grinders in favor of the Honne.

Tried getting one around 6 months ago, will have another go as it is a very good price

There’s one issue, for me at least... I’d need a bigger kitchen.... :-(

 

As at the moment, I actually keep my setup inside the cupboard. Nice and tidy, and the wife is happy.

One on short legs may fit but you'd need to find a different spot for your water.

Pretty hard getting one from Romania since the Germans are buying them in bulk apparently.

i've just ordered a kinu m47 as an intermediate step (hand gridner). coming off of a rocket fausto. keenly interested in the helor/option-o stance motor, which I think might be one of the better motorized options, but its $2k usd
