Hi all,

I'm searching a quality burr grinder for home use.  I found;
Gaggia MDF Coffee Grinder
Features
http://www.wholelattelove.com/Gaggia/mdf.cfm
-> Specification
-> Reviews

It looks suitable for my use grinding coffee beans for brewing espresso.  

Any folk on the forum having experience on this grinder please share me your experience?  Comment would be appreciated.  TIA

B.R.

Hi,

Thanks.

MDF is a flat burr grinder.  Whether it is NOT suitable for espresso machine?

How about Solis Grinder 167plus?

It is a conical burr grinder.

Compak K3
- snip-

Posted June 28, 2012 link

Whether you meant;

Compak K-3 Touch
http://www.compak.es/en/productos/020202.htm
It is FLAT burr grinder?

I found it here;
Compac K-3 grinder
http://www.coffeeclub.com.hk/grinder_en.htm

Price USD488 (approx)

I can accept its price.

But it is FLAT burr design.  Which will be better FLAT or CONICAL burr type?

That website also offer "Rocky SD no dose" which is CONICAL burr type

Thanks

The Rocky SD uses the same 50mm flat burrs as the model with the doser. K3 is a better choice since you can afford it.

 
I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?
