Subject: Which Baratza or Gaggia Grinder

THANKYOU to everyone that made suggestions on my other post.
I knew you'all were the right people to ask.
I've been doing some more research and wanted to know if you'all could
recommend one over the other, the important thing is that I usually
do coarse / FP )
or
is there another choice in the 0-$200 range
THANKyou again

I'm not sure where you live but Costco has been selling the cuisinart
supreme burr grinder in their stores for under $30. It's not as good as a
Rocky which costs 10 times more; but I think you would be impressed by what
you get for $30. It's a very stylish machine and the best part is if you
don't like it Costco will always take it back and give you a no hassle
refund. You can't go wrong. It never hurts to buy before you try.

I mention that very grinder on my website. it wasn't worth a full
review, but I do have some close up images of the burr set. Worth a
look before spending the $30, IMO. See Chapter 79 for the "dull"
details..

Or for $149 + $15 shipping you could get a refurbished Virtuoso from
Baratza:
http://www.baratza.com/products.php?itemid=15
http://www.baratza.com/products.php?itemid=1

Unfortunately, Baratza seems to be out of stock on the refurb Maestro
Plus: <http://www.baratza.com/baratza_online_store.php >.

Unless you're making espresso (and maybe not even then <g >) you do not
want a doser.

If you were stuck on one of those two, I'd take the Gaggia for
espresso, perhaps the MP for drip.

If $200 really is your limit, I'd suggest the Cunill Tranquilo
(actually I think the full name is Cunill el Cafe Tranquilo). It's
available for $199 as a "web special" at:

http://www.sovranastore.com/esgrin.html

I have one of these, and while it's not a Mazzer, it's a great machine
for the price. Possibly the best grind quality in this price range.
There's also the Ascaso I2 (or is it I1?) -- if they're still available
in this price range.
