Detailed Commentary

There is much to appreciate and value in this unique product - what you appreciate and value says more about you than the grinder. This product has generated much discussion and for me the HG-One's value lies in its pure approach to design - nothing more nothing less. Having had a Mazzer Mini for 10 years I was able for the very first time smell the many nuances of chocolate, berry, and other fruit as I turned the grinder handle. The grind was consistent and homogeneous - no clumping. There is however, static cling. This was not noticeable in the Mazzer as there was much waste and static - hard to tell which was which. With the HG-One it is more noticeable because there is no waste - at least very little and only in the within the burrs. What about the coffee? I think there is a difference but hard to quantify or qualify. Paired with the La Pavoni Stradivari, one has the simplest and most direct approach to making a beautiful brew.
