Hi Boet, thought it best to answer in the Grinders thread--per your question from the Espresso Machine forum, I use a Macap stepless/doserless, of the 3 you posted here I was going to suggest look at Ascaso, lot of discussions here over the last few years on their grinders, many favorable reviews. I believe it is stepless which gives you a little more control in dialing in a grind setting. You could also try to track down a new/used Mazzer or Macap in South Africa but I think the Ascaso or Isomac would still both be solid choices.

Thanks for your post. I don't think we get the Macap at all in s/Africa. I have seen mazzer but it is extremely expensive. I might be able to get a good deal on a new mdf, equivalent of +-180 usd. The ascaso and isomac are about $100 more here. So that may be the clincher for me.
