Looking for a grinder I came across these 2 grinders.  They are so beautiful, so well designed that I am really considering buying one...
I am interested in the smaller one, Lido, seems big enough to ground in good time and looks so fine, but would not hesitate on bigger one if it is much better;-)

The other hand grinders available are too small or cheap looking, this is really first one that took my fancy...

Has anyone first hand experience? I want to use them for espresso machine like Gag-Classic...

Are there others like that?

TIA

The LIDO is great. Results for espresso grinding seem decent based on what I've read, though I only use mine for coarser grinds. Here's some light reading for you (below). The second thread compares OE's grinders to the Rosco, which is another one you might consider if price is no object.

For espresso I'd definately go with the Pharos and buy one of the mods. The Lido is more or less designed for drip. Another great and beautiful grinder worth considering is the HG One www.hg-one.com.

There is no comparison between the Pharos and the HG One if beauty is defined by it's looks.  The HG One is magnificent in that department.
