Hi

 

I've got some money burning a hole, can't seem to find any in stock, this is a long shot but does anyone know where I can get one?

 

Secondly , for the money, can anyone recommend an alternative?

 

I make espresso, 2 a day for a Gaggia Classic

If you think about it, if they are not readily available, is it because they are incredibly popular because they are good.....or are they a pile of shite?

Isn't there one for sale on the forum that may/may not need a new part?

For £350? Yeah, a Eureka Specialita from BlackCatCoffee. From what I've read that's the best bet in the sub £500 market.

Edit: New I mean. If you're doing second hand there's all sorts of bargains to be had.

There were 2 on Gumtree last week. 6 month old for £200 and 1y old for £170.

Plenty of bargain grinders but mainly ex-shop style with higher grind retention and big footprints.

I'm sort of in your position and leaning towards a Minion Silenzio.

As far as I know Coffee Hit are the UK distributer for the 270.

I can get them from my supplier but they are a special order item now.

Given their reliability issues as seen many times reported....

Why bother? Personally, I’d buy a Niche or an eureka Mignon (but it’s not single dose, remember that).

I had a Sette W when they first came out. Overall, I quite liked it but this was pre Niche days. However, it was replaced under warranty within 2 weeks. The Americans bought them by the trailer, as certain coffee commentators do what they always do.....write an article that cannot be answered after a short term test, lock the article and the disciples flock to the shops......and then they failed by the trailer load as well. I think folks who have been around a long time might appear dismissive but it is with good reason. You can buy a Mignon which will out live you but not single dose. You can buy a Niche which will cover all your coffee needs. Interestingly, I have only heard of one or two that have had problems.....or you can buy a Sette

Well a Niche is a lot more expensive

I'm not looking for the W version and yes I'm aware of the earlier problems, although it does seem a lot of them seem to have been resolved but regardless, the standard Sette is a lot cheaper than a Niche

As someone who’s looking to buy an electric grinder soon for a bit more ease of use/quicker grind time compared to my Comandante C40 can I ask why you say they can’t single dose?

Is it that they’re not as good as a Niche at doing it? Or they just can’t produce any decent results ?

Cheers

Have you ever wondered why?

People can only give their opinions, from experience or from whichever research they did. It’s up to you to factor those into consideration or not.

I did s lot of research on those when they were first out. And the amount of people complaining they broke down were astonishingly high, which made me buy a Kinu M68 (built like a tank, but expensive!) and, when the Niche was in the scene, I sold it.

I ended up being a super early bird backer on the Niche, again, backed by opinions and reviews of the beta testers in this forum. Going strong, and I do not regret my decision one single bit.
