If you don't do Robs Porlex deal, then your going to want your shop to get the Hario Skerton and do the stepless mod as you'll find on here. Otherwise the wide steps = almost impossible to dial in.

oh, forgot about that :D i will see if he can get me a electric one, he says in some coffee shops here that doesn't go well, there're some unused grinders for -40% price ! for sooo cheap ! i will see what he can do, btw at same time im waiting for my aunt response !

will tell you !

at same time, i think my machine has some problems, with making steam ! my coffee shop's machine was older than him !  but anyway it made great steam + steamed milk, while i just end up part heavy thick foam and part watery milk ! i will take my machine to him next time , he knows a guy who can take a look at it and repair it ! also the latte was great there :D so awesome tasted good :)

anyway i will tell you as soon as i get the answer from my aunt :)

and that hario skerton looks easy to brake :O

edit:
Click Here (www.home-barista.com) : i can find all the nuts + washer i guess not sure if hardware store knows what m6 is :D but for a 99% i can find these !

sounds simple ! i feel a little guilty to put you in trouble of sending and stuff! :)

i saw the mod, its quiet easy ! now i guess if i fixed my aunts hand grinder probably it would grind good !:) there was also another  model which was still wood but looked better !:)

anyway there might be also chance that he'll get me a good 300$ grinder for around 150 $ !!! (Used ones !)


Also I heard from some ppl that its not good for espresso!

+ the nod only requires me replace nuts and stuff right? + a ruler on side of it !

Guess you didnt take the generous offer on the free Porlex?  The Skerton is fairly durable and should work fairly well for your needs.  Grinding for yourself by hand is not a big deal at all, especially at your age.  Its  most likely the better option over any electric grinder that you probably would have overpaid for.  

Good luck

hi, my skerton arrived just now:D i made my first coffee, the grind was a little large, but i changed it, will test again tomorrow, (tesed it on paper now seems fine !)

it made a whole another coffee, i can't call my old espresso's "espresso" !  but it wasn't strong enough, ofc because grind was large, changing grind required force and the problem was i couldn't put it in middle of 2 steps ( i will mod it soon:) )! but anyway lucky for me the last step seems good !

thanks a lot ! if i didn't post here i would got a more expensive horrible delongi grinder !!!

also thanks a lot for offering me the skerton, sadly i wasn't able to communicate with my aunt, she's here now ! but anyway i will ask her if she even got my massage when she's here :) but she didn't answer at all, also i tough it will be a problem for him to bring me a grinder till here, even now i see the grinder is bigger than i imagined ! but anyway thanks a lot all :) (my country is so horrible, its also not easy to bring it here, they may not allow it in plane ect,)

i made a new thread about a espresso machine, my father told me he'll buy one around 350$ for me, but not sure if its worth it, specially, now with grinder my coffee tasted 2x time better ! my beans were SO old, im gonna buy new beans tomorrow, and some green beans to roast them myself:D see how it will be ! also the beans weren't so great, they were like i guess 1-2 years stored in store !!! :)
