This is my old standby espresso grinder. I know it's expensive. Honestly, if I didn't have a coffee roasting business, I'm not sure I'd be able to justify the cost. But, I have one of these in the shop and cannot imagine a more versatile grinder, ranging from pour-overs, Technivorms, Chemexes to finely ground espresso. From the perfect 54mm ceramic burr to the programmable scale, this is my favorite grinder.

With this price tag comes features you didn't even know could be perfected past any standard grinder. With its all-metal construction for longevity of usage and accuracy of grind, its complex yet intuitive touch screen control panel, and its pre-programmable grind settings, it's easy to say that this is the Ferrari of small-scale grinders. The top of the top.

Many coffee drinkers fail at making an exceptional cup because they do not use a sufficient grinder. The grind type determines how quickly the water passes over the grounds, and different brewing systems require a specific grind. For example, espresso requires a powder-like grind so that the surface area can open up and extract the flavors and oils within the 20-30 seconds it takes to pull a shot. A simple rule to follow is: the shorter the brew time, the finer the grind. It is essential to have a proper grinder to achieve your specific brewing machine's ideal grind level.
