coffee imporved:
         Whirly to Braun flat burr
         Braun to Gaggia
         Gaggia to Solis
         Solis to Zass(knee)
         Solis to Rocky
         Rocky to Mazzer
coffee did not improve
        Zass(knee) to Rocky
There are other comparisons between a couple of Zass box types, 159's  
and a couple of other cheap burr grinders that I don't remember the  
brand names of that I got rid of.
