I have the Porlex, and for espresso, it does a nice job. Not as nice, or quick as my vintage wood KyM manuals do (70 turns for 15grams). The Porlex takes about 140-150 turns for 15 grams, depending, of course on your fineness needs. Orphan Espresso may have some left, and they also have other manual grinders, all the way up to the elegant Pharos, the big daddy of manual grinders. Around $250, or so, I believe. www.orphanespresso.com
