Topic: Macap M4 vs. Ascaso i-Mini (3 msgs / 61 lines)
1) From: A
I know the Ascaso is way cheaper in price and that it doesn't have the buil=
d quality of the Macap, but the reviews for the Ascaso on coffeegeek.com st=
ate that it is stepless and has infinite adjustments and allows for the per=
fect grind size adjustment for espresso and has consistency in grind qualit=
y.The Macap (which people are generally recommending in doser version, even=
 for 1 cup a day) is higher maintenance for me.
 
I am looking to buy a grinder for espresso only, and I pull only one single=
 shot a day. I currently have a Pavoni Europiccola and a Gaggia Classic but=
 in the long term I will upgrade to a better machine too. So, thinking long=
 term, what do people think would produce the best grind quality (in terms =
of consistency and best adjustability to make fine adjustments)? The grind =
(for producing very finely tuned espresso pours) is my only concern.
 
Thanks for your help.

If you're only doing a shot a day and don't mind a little static, the  
LaPavoni PGB or PGC is under $300, stepless and can be activated by  
pressing the PF against a switch or can grind into a catch-bin with a  
rocker switch on the side.  It's plastic, though.

You have identified the problem, with the cross hairs centered directly on
it, sir. You're looking in the right place and you are fine tuned.
