Having moved and now sharing an open plan lounge/kitchen area, my wife does her nut in when I make coffee using my Compak E5. To me (and my hearing is not the best anyway) it is not too bad of course but I have to respect her view. So, apart from the Niche that I already own, any thoughts on a decent on demand that is quiet. I seem to remember a Ceado E37s being a bit quite but I was not a big fan of the one I owned for a short period.

I was going to say my E8 isn’t bad, but I think is just because it’s fast, the noise is over fast. Certainly better than 10-12 seconds of super jolly

I haven't had the opportunity to compare them side by side but when I heard a Niche recently, I felt it was noticeably more noisy than my Monolith Conical. @MildredM ?

I do apologise..... I totally got the wrong end of the stick.... read on demand yet brain registered single dosing.

As if you haven’t had enough silliness already this evening?

Time for bed methinks. ;)

I haven't had a wide variety of grinders and the quietest is the Mythos and as it's only a few seconds it's over quick as.

I'm all open plan also, but live on my own so isn't an issue but understand your problem David

David has had enough Mythi (?) to be well acquainted with them I reckon. In fact, this thread is more one that I'd have thought he'd be answering rather than asking! I was also rather taken with the Mythos I used in training, just a shame they're so big! I find the Ceado pretty quiet, and it's only 5 seconds too. But he's had one, and many others to compare, whereas I've only had 4 electric grinders, one of which was the dreaded MC2 which is known to be disproportionately noisy.

Ah the tartan edition! I actually only upgraded to the Rocket so I didn't have to keep typing Gaggia and getting Haggis! That used to annoy the hell out of me hahaha! Yeah I know you guys are pretty local but I didn't realise you had one of his ex-Mythi.

My E37s seemed to be louder than the Niche, for a reference point. My money would be on a slow conical on demand - Ceado and Compak do them.

Haha it's a major problem with auto correct...nearly as hard as catching those little buggers, who would realise Haggis are so bloody fast runners :D :D

 

Yeah well used Mythos but it's still going strong.

Really fancy getting the small hopper or even the hopper chopped down for aesthetic.

Could do with a good stripping down now and a wrap or something visually pleasing.

Grind wise I find it amazing

4 seconds for 18g

Sound proof enclosure? plus noise/vibration isolating feet?

 

Grinder in cupboard/other room?

 

You need to determine which noise she does not get on with.... motor or grind itself

 

Or perhaps you need to mention you are about to grind to lessen the surprise

 

Ignore All of the above if the aim here is a new grinder "upgrade"

I was threatened with having to move my coffee gear to the bunker once as my old 64mm grinders were "too noisy and woke the F***ing street up" - I pointed out that it was a great alarm clock and those numpties next door should be up and doing something useful with their lives apart from stockpiling scented candles and discount vouchers. I also pointed out that if I went in the bunker I would probably not come out for several hours at a time - so there you have it you need to get the excavators in :good:

The problem is, having a Niche, that is the sound levels she is going to expect. I might when the hopper is empty, put the E5 to one side and try just to use the Niche for a bit. Personally, I only drink 2 cups a day now so I guess it would be no biggie....no room to move anything to another room.....bloody bungalows!

How about one of those Acaia weighing up machines to save the faff of weighing then you CAN have a Monolith coni - they are quiet and really fast making them unlikely to be an annoyance! And it save me having to buy one just to see what they’re like!

I's suspect that the only grinder that would match Niche for noise levels is the E37K - 290rpm along with the resilient mounting they use.

 

:) LOL - Or if you want I could sell you a Robur. I've done what I wanted to do with mine.

How about an EK43 with the Frank (Titus Grinding) volumetric doser on the top? From what I recall you don't weigh in anyway and so you could just check the first one to make sure it's ballpark and then go from there.

Obviously it's not silent but it is bloody quick and you could be finished so quickly you'd be able to claim you weren't even doing anything - I've used this trick in various different settings (as I'm taking a turn for the carry on side of humour I'll stop there).

John, I's suspect that from within the confines of your padded cell you may have a unique aural perspective, to which most of us will struggle to relate. :)

He just needs to buy their ancillary kit they sell to go with either.

Ceado mentioned as they appear to use well balanced motors - wont get round the noise the beans make though.

I don't think dfk will have much problem weighing in when he's used to it. Me for instance one full scoop always goes in. Next one varies, some get tipped in followed by tapping some out of the scoop. I work to -0 to +0.1g so may put one or 2 beans in more than needed so take 3 or 4 out and add some to adjust. Of late I'm asking myself if a couple of extra beans really matters. Compared with a timed grind probably not.

 

He probably wont be happy about the grind time of Niche and then the grinds have to be added to the portafilter and prepared however he does it. That will take longer, Then he might not like the taste of what comes out. So far when I have changed anything major equipment wise it's meant a certain amount of retuning.
