Why are my eyes drawn to the sexy grinder
I know why, I have the twin  >:D

KK
They are closely related. The serial numbers may be adjacent. Made in December 2015.

I have a great funnel, no mess, thanks KK!

No buyers regret. The Robur is just big enough for home use and light at 62 pounds. Seriously it is weird that it works so well and is so easy to live with for home use.

I sold the Kony to someone on CS and he loves it too. The compensation with these grinders is impeccable grind quality and they will last forever....well more or less.

Thanks. Very happy with it. KK gave me his funnel which means wastage is less than any other grinder I have owned. It is quick and quiet. The Wega Mini Nova Classic seems to be a well kept secret. Rotary and plumbed in.

Thanks Paul. The grinder was too good a deal to resist. The Wega I have had for well over a year and works perfectly. Nice simple HX machine.

Here is an update photo of my setup

Keep in mind that the Strega is about 7 or 8 years old and still looking like new
The Robur is a just over a month
Custom PF and lever handles have served me well  :thumb:

Both look great. Both will still look just as good in ten years.

Buy quality, not problems.

I always worry about having the grinder near the machine, moisture etc, do you guys find this to be an issue at all with your setups? (Water jumping over onto the grinder?) Hence my setup being grinder on one end of the corner bench and the machine on the other haha.. It's probably easy enough to avoid and not really an issue having them side by side.. I see many and have worked in many cafes which have that setup

No.

I’ve never even considered it really. An espresso machine produces some steam but steam rises and dissipates quickly.

The steam wand is on the opposite side from the grinder in my setup but I doubt if it would matter.

Never had an issue
But I do take care and reduce any risk when releasing steam / water
The system I use is to wrap a microfibre cloth over the steam wand and all steam is trapped inside it
And for milk steaming - we’ll im very good at it - so no milk spots

Ah okay fair enough, yeah for steaming but also for any splashback that may occur when purging water, cleaning grouphead etc, but that's great to know. Maybe I'm just messy XD. Am moving houses soon and this situation may arise :o ;)

The cloth over the steam wand method as noted above is great
However I have recommended to others in the past to use an empty 1 Lt milk bottle if space and height permits

Edit
As for group head cleaning and catching over spill I use a stainless steel camping mug
I don’t let any last lever machine flow to spill into the catch stray I catch it in the cup and the odd drop is caught by the blue cloth

That’s why my machine still looks like new

Ah nice, cheers will keep in mind :). It's funny the idea of trying to keep water away from coffee/coffee grinds at all costs but then it's gonna have water specifically blasting through it in the end XD

Lol... I know right but I went and had a play with one at the local cafe and it’s too glorious in every respect.  I was going to go all-out and get the electronica but keeping it fresh and efficient would be a challenge at home.  I may yet remove the auto-stop assembly from the Robur for chute-sweeping but at this stage I’m happy to waste a few beans.

Nice score Brett.
You guys have tempted me to consider an upgrade, but I have certain restrictions from the boss ladies.
A new grinder must:
- be as easy to use as the current M4D.
- be doserless. (non-negotiable)
- have minimal grind retention.

I have spent a lot of effort teaching my household to use our current setup. Single dosing with only minute grind adjustments was the easiest concept for all to master, so the new grinder will have to be easy to use.

On the plus side, with so many shops closing down, there might be a unit or two available in the near future.......

You may be confusing my setup with another

Ah right, I could’ve sworn you shared a YouTube clip on here a few years ago about the Strega that talked about placement in a small kitchen under cupboards. I must be getting it confused with something else.

It all makes sense now
Yes that video was from the showroom at Bezzera Australia,  the place I purchased the machine from

My Strega was the first unit that was sent into the country for pre launch evaluation
