Topic: Coffee mills/grinders (7 msgs / 125 lines)
1) From: Greg Hollrigel
OK, I know this has probably been discussed a lot, but since I don't know if
there is an archive to search through old posts and since I saw the grinder
post on the Maestro Plus, I figured I would ask.
I currently use a Zassenhaus hand coffee mill.  It seems very good to me.
It also suits my purposes in terms of use and convenience.
Is there much of a difference in grind quality between a Zassenhous mill and
electric grinders such as the Virtuoso, Maestro Plus, Rancilio Rocky, or
Mazzer Mini?  A friend of mine recommended the Mazzer Mini if I could afford
it.  Just wondering if there is a noticeable difference in grind quality for
espressos and then up to drip between the two types.
Thanks,
Greg

Eeek.  The archive is broken.   I went to the
  which has a
link to the archive at
 and it's
saying "can't find the server at lists.sweetmarias.com.".
I seem to remember another site that had an archive of this list.
Anyways.  The Zassenhaus grind is a fairly good grinder other than
having to put the effort into turning the crank by hand.

The homeroast list isn't on the sweetmarias.com server, but rather the
sweetmariascoffee.com server.  The archives are at:http://lists.sweetmariascoffee.com/private.cgi/homeroast-sweetmariascoffee.com/-Josh

Thanks.  The link(s) on the SM site still need to be updated though.
