Single dose large flat?

Recommended Posts

I’m currently using a Sage DTP with a Santos 01 grinder.

 

I love the convenience of the setup but I remember getting better tasting coffee when I had my Royal.

 

I would love to spend some money on a shiny dual boiler but I think I would see better results from a different grinder.

 

I have looked the the EK43, Ceado E37S and the Compak E8.

 

I only have a couple of drinks a day, mixture between espresso and milk based.

 

Are any of these better for single dosing and are there any other contenders I’m missing?

If you liked the Royal, why don't you buy one? It is easily the cheapest of the bunch.

I've got the e37s and I love it but it's no good for single dosing. There's the E37SD for that but you'll probably need to be on good terms with your bank manager.

I hated the doser mechanism. Even with the clean sweep mod. Not sure if they do an on demand version?

E8 for me my E5 was good a little loud and retention, but good coffee and one E8 is in the for sale. Can't go wrong.

What's your budget?

1. Option O Lagom
2. Monolith
3. Lyn Webber
4. Mazzer ZM
5. Compak pk100
6. Ceado e37 hero, SD, e5 sd
7. Ek 43
8. Maybe Eureka Atom 75 as it has flow control disk

Can't think of any others for now.@coffeechap has 1st hand experience of most of them I think so he can chime in.

Wow, some beautiful and expensive grinders in that list! Up to 1k, used of course. More for an EK.

Thanks for the heads up. I’ll keep an eye out for someone selling a Royal.
