Topic: La Pavoni CG-600 Alpina Grinder? (3 msgs / 54 lines)
1) From: Earbud1
I'm fairly new to power coffee grinders and wonder if anyone can tell me if  
the La Pavoni CG-600 Alpina is a good all-around grinder and if it would also 
be  able to serve for an adequate expresso grinder.
 
Anyone?

You might check out the reviews on CoffeeGeek.com.  There are several lower
cost burr grinders which seem to be built from lesser quality components.  =
I
had one by Melitta, actually the same as you are looking at, rebranded.  Th=
e
grind wasn't consistent enough for espresso, although it worked OK for drip=
.
Here's a site to read lots of reviews of this and similar:http://www.coffeegeek.com/reviews/grinders/lapavonipaI currently have several grinders:
  Rancilio Rocky (that's the really good one) - serves my espresso machine
  Cory Electric mill - does a great job on my daily drip - (circa 1950's)
  Melitta whirley-gig - this is at the office in case I needa  quick pot
  Zassenhaus 151 manual grinder - office regular grinder - love it
  Zassenhaus 499 manual grinder - home, great all around - love it
  Armin Trosser manual grinder - currently cleaning up - grinds great
I am a huge Zass fan.  Not everybody likes to turn the crank (go to
McDonalds and drink their sludge instead - my thought).  I know I know - I
have arthritis too - takes 1 minute to grind all I need....
I will never buy another cheap electric burr grinder...

Personally I would not invest in a grinder unless I'd heard plenty of good
feedback about it.  It's just too hard to know what's good and what isn't
and it's a crucial part of making your coffee.
