Yea… I had done some read ups on the grinders you suggested, it mostly either it’s very good for coarse grind/medium or espresso. Mutually exclusive.

maybe save up for commandante c40.
Yeh, fully manual can look at the Commandante or the JX Pro.

As for pourover coffee kit, get the usual scale + kettle and either a Bee house dripper w/ Melitta filters or a v60 w/ its filters. Won't go wrong with either .. and easy to clean up. Can also get a metal filter to enjoy the coffee oils and aroma :coffee:

Is metal filter same as paper? I know paper filter less coffee oil, might taste less sour. But would there be retention of aroma?

Metal filters and nylon filters let in quite a few of the oils for a more aromatic brew. But they are cheap and durable and can create a unique taste that you might like to drink once in a while.

Coffee w/ paper filters are aromatic of course, but since a lot of the oils have been absorbed, the aroma you get is a lot less than w/ more of the coffee oils present.

Here's a pretty nice intro to coffee drippers - dunno if you have seen already, but is a good watch - turn on the subs :D

Any coffee experts know where to get this kind of ceramic/ clay mugs ? The material is very very different from normal mugs, very porous and slightly rough.

I want something simple and without that smooth glaze coating. I find that coffee kinda taste better in it ......

got any affordable electric coffee grinder recommendations?

usually use v60 with paper filter to brew coffee, kinda lazy to manually grind coffee nowadays...

Both also good ..

But since you talking about "fast" .. I'd prolly go with a Hario dripper. 6 - 7 minutes includes weighing coffee, grinding, brewing and throwing/washing the filter (ceramic or glass).

Can also consider the Kalita Wave w/ a flat bed wave paper filter as well ..

Using the Baratza Encore for a few years now .. is quite good for pourovers. Some other EDMWer posted a Baratza Virtuoso pic earlier in this thread also :)
