Just a heads up for anyone who hasn't seen the news over on HB or elsewhere.

In a nutshell, the goal seems to be to build a small, consistent, coarse-grinding hand mill. Sounds great! OE's standards are high, and so are my expectations.

A pic of the prototype can be found here (far right).

Very exciting! My porlex performs poorly for drip!

I guess the porlex will have to stick to aeropress only and I should get one of these for everything else..

Maybe so! Interesting. I was very close to pulling the trigger on a Porlex, an OE-PFP, or an old Peugeot hand mill when I first learned about this. Now, based on what I'm reading, I'll wait and become an early adopter of the Lido.

Brilliant, I didn't even know they made a little grinder like this.  I just ordered mine.

My LIDO #025 has landed! First impressions were great! I look forward to putting it through the ringer.
