Fellow Ode – A Bargain Or A Bust?

I'll admit it, I'm late...

to the Fellow Ode party, but its definitely not for lack a trying. I've been reaching out to Fellow on multiple avenues trying to get an Ode for review since late 2020. Unfortunately every lead led me to a non-response, a pass off, and one case being purely ignored (see the video for the receipts). But, I'm told patience is a virtue, and it's paid off in the form of not one, but two Fellow Ode grinders. One with the stock burr set, and another the high uniformity SSP burrs, so you know a video had to be produced.

The benefit of being late is having heard a lot of pros and cons of the grinder before it even landed on my bench. So I knew what to look out for, but there are a few questions that remained unanswered. So armed with quite a bit of test coffee, a sifter, and a full work day of grinding, brewing, and testing produced some interesting results, especially when compared to the Niche Zero.

So if you're curious about what I'm on about hit play on that video above for the full Fellow Ode breakdown.
