Doug,
I have a Mahlkoenig VTA6SI3
http://www.mahlkoenig.com/us_products/VTA-6S-three-phase.html
Will this grind for Drip. Seriously, I own this but I have never tried drip
coffee from it. Why do the burrs on this unit do better for drip than a 600
or 800 dollar Super Jolly. We could say "German engineering" but what does
that really mean here in this discussion?
