Not the cheapest but among the best
Like Luforge, I bought this grinder to match my ECM Synchronika.
I've tried other grinders including the Mazzer Kony-E but keep coming back to the V-Titan as my daily go-to. It delivers a consistent grind relatively fast and looks terrific doing it. My only complaint aesthetically is that the lids for the distribution funnel and hopper are a bit cheap looking - I understand a steel version is now available.
Functionally, the portafilter holder works reasonably well though doesn't really like the ECM bottomless PF and this can be unstabl...e if it's not quite sitting perfectly. Although I dose into a metal cup to weigh the grinds, I then use the funnel to dose into the portafilter - so still use the PF holder daily. The timer is reasonably accurate - I typically get doses within a few tenths of a gram, though on occasion can be out by half a gram or more for no obvious reason. Dosing manually is somewhat limited - the minimum for timed dose is arbitrarily set at 2 seconds, so the best method to dose a small amount is to hit the button three times; I've found I can dose a minimum of 1 gram using this method. Setting the timer for single and double shots is a bit fiddly but comparable to most other grinders of this type. The grinder is quite clean in use, though there are some crevices that gather grinds and could be easier to clean. Cleaning the burrs and throat means removing the top burr carrier - so the grind must be dialed in after. After cleaning the first time, I must have reassembled something incorrectly as the grind was extremely coarse; after disassembly and reassembly it worked fine, so I'm still not sure what I did wrong.
'Fast N Fluffy"
I have matched this beautiful chromed retro styled grinder to compliment my ECM Synchronika coffee machine.
It has a powerful 450W motor to make your grind super fast and fluffy into your portafilter.It has 3 settings T1(time adjust for single dose) T2 (for double dose) and manual mode for your own timing. The only draw back is theirs no reference point on the grinder to set the grind, so make sure you buy a 1kg of beans because it will be touch n' go to find the right position.The titan is a very well designed and engineered with 64mmTitaniu...
