Pourover - SuperJolly or something else? (Maybe Sage Smart Pro)

Recommended Posts

I'd be grateful for any advice you lovely coffee types can give.

 

I've got a Super Jolly that I've been using with a Gaggia classic and after a good year of use have concluded that espresso just isn't my thing and I love a good pourover. I'm therefore thinking of selling my set up and just having a grinder and v60.

 

I've read in various places online that the Super Jolly is an espresso grinder and as such isn't very good for pourover. Is there a material difference between an SJ and a "pourover grinder"? Should I just hang on to my SJ and use it for pourover or sell up and get something more pourover focussed? And if so, what could I get for a similar cost as I could sell the SJ for?

 

Thanks for your help!

I'd happily swap my SGP for your SJ as I am looking for an SJ/Major for espresso. I will admit that the SJ is a far better grinder than the SGP for espresso but the SGP is compact and convenient and perfectly suited to pour over. I have no experience with the SJ and pour over though. Maybe a swap with some additional money? (I'm sorry if I am breaching rules by discussing this in a non-sale forum)

Not if your SJ goes coarse enough (it should).
