I think Macaps are very nice, but if you want doserless I can't
recommend them. And their doserless automatic is goofy. We wanted to
carry them but don't like the chute design. For doser I still like
the Mazer but I use the Compak K3 and have grown to like it.
Adjustment can be very slight movement, but once you get used it,
Frankly, I have come to think that the best grinder improvment isnt
the grinder. It is having a small shop vac by the grinder! I pull an
SO shot, suck everything out, and can switch coffees easily.
Sometimes I need to compare 3 or 4 blends or SO side by side. Keeps
the whole area so clean too...
