Even with it's high price I've considered buying the LIDO because the quality appears to be excellent. But it's too big and too heavy for me to qualify as a travel grinder. Why did they make it so tall? I'm never going to grind 60 grams by hand.
It fits in my backpack. I did grind 60g Sunday, and it was a chore, not to mention the problems I had with my aeropress with 60g in the chamber. 45g was a lot more manageable, both in the grinding and in the aeropress.
