Talking about a whole bean grinder for pour overs, chemex, press, etc. We will be doing by-the-cup brewing for everything. I'm looking closely a Mahlkonig and a few other options.
What are you guys using?
What do you like/dislike about it?
What make/model would you recommend in the sub-$2000 range? (Obviously, the best and cheapest is preferred given that parameter)?
Thanks for your help guys!
I have gotten to use a Ditting a couple of times and it was a really great grinder. It had really consistent grinds and is pretty solid. I have also used a cheapo BUNN bulk grinder with good results. No matter what you get your going to have to play with it a great deal to get your grind right for your brew process.
I used and have used Bunn, Mahlkonig, Compak and GrindMaster grinders in my shops and while I do like the Mahlkonig grinders, I selected the Compak R80 for our hand brew bar. Small footprint, excellent grind quality, good speed and reliable.
Granted. Dittings are great machines, but I think they run more than $2k though.
