Do you grind out stale grounds before before dosing your portafilter? You know; run the grinder for a couple seconds to push out any grounds that were retained from last time and then just throw them away.
It’s something I often do and depending on the grinder you're using and how you use it, it may be the only way to be certain you’re getting a completely fresh dose.
So I have seven well know grinders here and I tested each to see how much ground coffee it retains after grinding. I’ll have detailed results of my tests in a minute - there were a couple of surprises, so be sure and stick around for that. I’ll also have some usage tips and opinions, and things I picked up when working with the seven grinders side by side for a day.
Mazzer; a name that for years has been respected in the espresso grinding world. Ceado; the new kid on the block with some innovative new features.
Today an in-depth comparison of nearly identically priced higher-end prosumer level grinders from Mazzer and Ceado. From Mazzer it’s the Mini Electronic which comes in a type a and type b variations and from Ceado the new E37J.
Looking for a commercial-level, espresso focused grinder that’s a real value? Well, stick around for an in-depth look at an affordable solid performer.
Today we look at the E5P from Ceado. The basics: the E5P is a doserless grinder, so you grind directly into a portafilter. Its 300 watt motor spins a 64 millimeter flat stainless steel burr set at 1400 RPM. Grind size adjustment is step-less so you can make extremely fine adjustments when dialing in your shots.
