Gaggia MDF Grinder

Ready to step up into the big time? While a lot of people get started with a blade grinder or even a small burr grinder, espresso fans know that if you want to step up in quality, a great place to think about is getting a better grinder. Not only is a burr grinder important, but a reliable precision grinder that can turn out the same fine grind time and time again can be key in creating a great cup of coffee.

The Gaggia MDF Grinder is a good first step up from a typical home grinder as it is a high quality burr grinder that delivers coffee through 34 different fineness settings and 50 mm tempered steel grinding burrs. The Gaggia MDF, like many other higher end grinders will grind into a chamber, and with a quick pull of the lever, it will deliver about 1/4 ounce of ground coffee directly into a portafilter, just like in most coffee shops. The 1/4 ounce, or about 7 grams is usually enough for a single shot of espresso. The Gaggia MDF is a good step up machine from the regular home grinder. The next step up to consider is the Rancillo Rocky which is a bit more quiet and a bit more rugged, and a bit more money. For anyone using a commercial portafilter machine, a high quality grinder like this is a must.

I thought this was "Single Serve Espresso".

Unless you guys think the MDF is one-time use disposable...
