Subject: Grinder Height Comparison
 

For folks shopping for a home grinder, here's a comparison you may find useful. It's the heights of grinders. The heights without hopper were measured from photos and are rounded to the nearest half inch, so they may be inaccurate. Heights of some models (e.g., Super Jolly) may have changed over time. Feel free to correct/add to.

                                      Hopper                  Without Hopper
Gaggia MDF                        11.5                           8
Nemox Lux/                        11.8                         7.5

I think this a great table to have around.  However, I'm curious why you didn't get actual spec measurements, rather than making them off of photos?  That would make it so much more trustworthy.  Also, not to be over critical (I hope), but there are short and tall hopper options for several of the grinders listed.

Again, I think the table you compiled is GREAT! and applaud you for creating it!
