The DF line of grinders...
have become pretty prolific over the past couple years, and it was only a matter of time before they progressed past the reasonably popular and priced 64mm burrs and dreamed bigger. Enter the new and highly anticipated DF83. Much like its fellow DF grinders this single dosing, low-retention all-round coffee grinder offers up big burr brewing on a budget. When most of the options in this size range are well past the $1,000 mark, the DF83 can be had for $700.
Setting the price aside, the conversation that always comes along with moving to a grinder that has larger burrs, is whether bigger truly is better. Is it an upgrade, or a lateral move? Well in this week's video I'll be getting into my take on that debate, as well as an in depth look at the DF83's workflow, performance, and downsides. I'll even get into both its stock Italmill steel burrs against the available SSP Grinding high uniformity upgrade.
So if you're curious to see how this all grinds out, and if bigger truly is better, hit play on the video above and let's brew this!
