New member , introducing myself: Alessandro, from Italia;
Been reading some till now, guess it's about time I say hello and thanks for this great forum and all the precious info you can get here.  
Now in Italy we use to say, "bando alle ciance" (i.e:  let's not beat around the bush..)  so, here is the question:  
until now I've been grinding with an old electric blade grinder, sometimes with good results, some other time...no.  
So I will soon pair my Nemox Fenice machine with a grinder. After some reading, and some chatting with my wallet, the choice is among Nemox Lux (my wallet favors this one) Graef 80, Nuova Simonelli Grinta (flat burrs) and Eureka Mignon (= Nuova Simonelli MCF, the burrs are the same ones as in the Grinta, while the motor should be different). My question is: anybody has experience with these grinder/suggestions?
Ciao and again thanks for the forum! Alessandro

Updated... after deciding for a stepless regulated grinder, the choice is now restricted between: La Pavoni Kube mill -same motor, blades as Nemox Lux, but with micrometric regulation - and Eureka Mignon -flat 50 mm blades, higher grinding speed- : now, as a beginner, I don't know if the speed difference in grinding  (800 RPM  Pavoni, vs 1400 RPM Eureka) will result in any difference. The price difference is around 200 US dollars, Eureka the higher priced. I've read threads on the Eureka and Lux (=La Pavoni Kubemill) but not found a direct comparison, if somebody has tried both, I thank for the help...

Buy the best grinder you can afford, tell your wallet to take a hike and listen to your mouth, you will be much happier in both the short and long run.

wallet gone fishing ...., the "quality in the cup duel" winner  would  be the Eureka?
Thanks for the answer, ciao Alessandro

The most obvious difference in these grinders is the burr type. The LP Kubemill uses conical burrs (reason for the lower RPM's) while the Mignon uses flat disc burrs. Some say conical burrs produce a brighter taste in the coffee while flat burrs produce sweeter tastes. With large burr sets this difference is less pronounced. Both of these grinders use small burrs (by espresso grinder standards) so I guess that the taste difference would be noticeable.

 
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?

updated: I've chosen to go for the conical burrs... Nemox Lux is on the way, as the parts to make it stepless at once... I'll see if the choice has been wise, I hope it will be anyway better than the actual vintage blade coffee chopper..
ciao a tutti, A.
