have not really got one

That won't help people suggest stuff. You must have an upper limit?

Do you gave a grinder?

Used to use an MDF. Even with a stepless mod it's alot of faff to get past the retention. Moved onto a mignon & while the burrs are the same size, the workflow & taste improved greatly.

Laissez les bons temps rouler

Does the MDF have 50MM burrs?

Yep. The footprint is the same as the mignon mk2 too if you ignore the doser

You definitely need to upgrade the grinder as well...not an option to keep using it with a better machine. To be quite brutal, it's a terrible grinder.

I would do a fair bit of research before committing to a purchase of a new machine to make really sure that is what you want,buy once and be happy,
