I decided to drop some money on the Baratza Preciso grinder, which has had some great reviews and compares nicely, and sometimes better than the Vario, which is twice the price. Mark Prince, a renowned coffee expert in the USA has pegged as being as good as grinders costing $1500-$2000 when you examine the quality of the grinds from the conical burr.
- Its got a small footprint, so fits in perfectly on a kitchen bench.
- Has over 40 macro/micro grind adjustments which work very well, alowing you to both finetune your espresso grind AND jump between drip/filter/plunger or anything else, AND back again without skipping a beat.
- The bean hopper holds 250g of coffee beans
- Did I already say, it looks great?
