I actually like the V60 results from the Lido 3 better than I like them with the Kinu. I think the Lido gives a better balanced cup while the Kinu brings forward the bitter notes.

 

I think you have them set differently.

Thanks for all of your responses to my question.

 

I watched the Chris Baca vid, and he concludes that you can’t really use it for espresso because of all of the grinding you’ll be doing. He must be talking about a commercial context, right? Because otherwise I don’t see how the 15g pour over dose is going to trouble me more than my 17g La Pav dose. The 55g for the Brazen might be another matter...

Espresso needs a finer setting, which takes more elbow grease, finer still if the beans are lighter roasted which is where it becomes a pain in the arse

 

Sorry if you knew this already.

I am sure it will be fine for espresso. Even my MBK aergrind is fine for espresso at a push, just more tiring than you might like.

 

I wouldn’t stress that side.

 

If you are happy with reviews of grind quality, then that’s the main thing.

 

Seems to be less than £200 online which seems pretty well priced to me.

 

I haven’t ground with one but got hands on with one and it feels lovely and solid.

I *think* I had subconsciously factored this in from my time with an Amazon special hand grinder from years ago. But it’s worth hammering home.

At work I make 3 drip brews from 40g total, I did use various hand grinders over the last 6 years, but it's electric from now on. At home, making just a cup, hand grinding isn't much faff & reach for those instead of electric.

 

Hand grinding for espresso? OK if you're not trying to brew on a knife edge all the time, just make a shot, hopefully it's at least nice, think about a little tweak for next time. If you're likely to be regularly tweaking & adjusting, electric takes a lot of faff out of it, more smiles per brews :-)

....yeeeeesssss....except the flip side of that is the intangible enjoyment from having worked to grind those damned beans into a powder capable of espresso extraction...Somehow to me gives the shot a taste advantage
