Yes, I had forgotten about this one.  I recall speaking at length to 
the Versalab gentleman (John?) some years ago about this very 
item.  The myth being that high speed burrs can instantly heat coffee 
(via friction) and destroy vital components.  The (supposed) truth, 
or maybe I should say the seed this started from, was burr heating 
from heavy use, often directly from conduction from a hot 
motor.  Funny how stories change.
