I personally purchased this grinder to go in tandem with my sage duo temp coffee machine and found it to be excellent (so far). I paid £180 for it, and since I am within the returning period, amazon kindly refunded me the difference (kudos to them). This is not a budget grinder that can be sourced for 50 quid.

Not in stock, with a 1-3 weeks lead time, but we know that amazon can often exceed expectations.

Excellent grinder. I have the same mechanism inside my Barista express. All of the initial problems seems to be ironed out.
I take it as the cold voters think that a 30 quid delonghi will do the same job!
Very nice price. Thanks OP. You might have helped me choose my own birthday present
Voted hot as it looks like a proper conical burr grinder. For this price you can get only Iberital MC2 grinder which is a nightmare to adjust. Is it worth a shot? For sure it's a different league than all cheap ones on the market.

​if you don't like it, Amazon will take it back within one month so it's worth a shot.

​it's just a lot of money for something that makes beans into powder. In seriousness, how complicated can this be? and how much better is this one than the 30quid one you mentioned? Are there quantifiable metrics such as minimum and maximum grind sizes and a distribution of output grind sizes to gauge not only the fineness of the grind but also the consistency? My suspicion is that the additional £110 might be better spent on freshly roast beans.

​i get your point. no guarantees that because this is 4 times the price of budget ones, it will be 4 times better, but that's the same for everything, TVs,cars. however it is better than budget ones, and if you do your research and are in the market for one, that's the cheapest price it's ever been, which is the point of hukd. for technical reviews there are other sites to go to.
Just found this, bizarre this should be so cold as after tons of research this is the best of the low end grinders, also today I found it at Lakeland for the same price so gota price match from John Lewis with 2 years guarantee, I was thinking it might make a good post for HUKD but maybe not.
Go read Coffeeforums.co.uk for loads of advice, the grinder is the most important bit, the cheap electrical grinders tend to be inconsistent and poor quality that can't produce a fine enough grind for nice tasting esspresso.

​looking at what's hot on hukd now, ssds, videogames, CPUs. that's what most hukd users are after . unfortunately niche users such as coffee lovers, need to do some digging to find out deals which are of interest to us!
