Apparently there are two series of ProLine grinders.

Price is up to $130, other colors available.

Street price is usually more like $200 than $300 (in fact the street prices
range all the way from $199 to $200 (some 199.49, 199.95, 199.99) . Looks
like Kitchenaid has been pretty effective in maintaining MAP, so this is
your big chance.

Most reports say OK for drip, not ideal for espresso (fineness of adjustment
and ease of use issues). Coffeegeek is down for a change.

Hijack!
Haven't you heard, no one cares if the geek is up or down.

I've heard mixed opinions about the Pro Line products.

I got a fellow church member hooked on espresso drinks & against my
recommendations he bought the Pro Line espresso set. I've taken them for a
test drive so to speak & didn't find anything that justified the price
(neraly $1000 for both).

Plus I'm leary of the use of thermoblocks in any form or fashion.

I thought the Kitchenaid dual boiler machine was not a thermoblock but two
Gaggia boilers in one case. R U sure about the 'blocks?

It *is* two Gaggia boilers. Reports are that the steam boiler is
smaller, but I can't say how much.

Might have been a precursor of the design being used in the Baby Twin,
which I'm informed also isn't a thermoblock, but just a very small steam
boiler.

Actually I didn't crack the case to look. I'm guilty of repeating what I
overheard someone else saying at the home show.
