How discernible in the cup is a grinder upgrade?

Post by Pryz » Thu Jun 06, 2013 10:19 pm

I'm sure this had been thoroughly discussed here (or maybe just H-B), but I ordered an SJ last night from Chris Coffee as an upgrade to my Rocky and want to know if I am really going to taste it in the cup. Sorry if this is redundant, but the board has been a little slow lately and thought I would try to spark some discussion.

Also, if anyone knows how bad Canada Revenue is going to hit me at the border I would appreciate the info.

You'll notice the improvement. Also, the grind time will amaze you. It only takes about 4s to grind enough coffee for a double. Plus it's easier to disassemble when you need to clean the burrs.

That's good. Never really enjoyed taking Rocky apart.

Well, how was the SJ upgrade?
