I decided to give an HG-One a shot and decided I want to go with an electric grinder despite the increased waste.

This has been broken in using 3lbs of instant rice and about 8lbs of coffee. Unit looks like new and includes all original accessories including the original shipping box.

Asking / Suggested Price: Sold
Seller Name: Jeremy Dibble

Those aren't of comparable value.

Jeremy, just curious. Was the huge conical burr experience yielding too "bright" a taste profile, or was it more the (for some) tedium of grinding manually?
Time wise, you might save 25-30 seconds with an electric Conical, or flat burr Mazzer Major or Baratza Forte, the latter  being totally no mess, clump free and waste free. I own one.

As one who has never had a home espresso shot using a "Titan" type grinder, I'm curious as to what such a burr set would produce with my Strega.  i Got you a "Bump" as well! LOL
Best of luck with your sale. Man, I wish I had the money for the HG-One.









BTW, it's "later on!!" Please post some pix of your HG-One!

Pic added. I have more and can email them when requested.

Profile was easily balanced and I had no issues with the quality of grind. It compared favorably with the Pharos and preformed better than the Cimbali Max Hybrid.

An Ek43 sits on the espresso island now. Different beast completely!

Seriously! Ive never seen anyone try to use a shop grinder like that for espresso. Id love to have your hg1 also, but im addi ted to the convenience and speed of my mazzer electronic major. But id like to try a conical which is why the hg1 interests me. But i think id enjoy a kony a lot more.

It depends on how much retention you mind. This is the lowest retention grinder by far.

The big advantages are:
-no wasted coffee
-easily swap coffee if you use small batches or like day to day variety
-low noise
-rock solid reliability
-easy adjustment
-modern looks
