Didnt try to open it up yet...will see to it..

By manual grinders do you mean machine type or hand?

I've 2 manual hand grinders,can grind from very fine to coarse with no problem..but the con is need a bit patient and time lol.

I totally understand the struggle of manual grinders! But yeah, there are many pros too--like longevity (I think I've gone thru 2 electric grinders now and my manual grinder is still as sturdy as ever). Also, I get too conscious about cleaning it up, because there could be molds hiding deep within the parts. For manual ones it's easier to take them apart and clean the parts while for electric... it's a complex matter. But I try anyway, coz I didn't want the quality (and safety) of my coffee to suffer. I seriously suggest "deep cleaning" the grinder regularly (a simple cleaning procedure I follow is in here: https://coffeforus.com/howto-clean-coffee-grinder/)

Recently I tried started to feel that im getting headaches whenever I dont drink coffee on the morning or for a longer period of time. Did some research on the net and stumbled upon this article on negative caffeine effects https://coffeforus.com/negative-caffeine-effects/. Decided to quit coffee for some time to see if I can break the habit.

You could try decaf.

But posting this on this forum is like telling you have become atheist in a religious forum!

Yes despite the kg89 being convenient and fast,it still doesn't grind consistent enough for a good espresso.Yesterday I tried to use back the basic ceramic burr grinder that I had been using and to my surprise the grind was far more consistent /finer than the kg89 and the shot didnt came out bitter as it did...maybe the kg89 just a bad grinder/investment...lol.any suggestion for a bang for buck grinder that does the job right? Online searches only show models that barely seen/sells here locally.

Kg89 is not the standard measure of quality... it's for ppl with cheap hotel room coffee percolator

Ask our friend few post back where he got this grinder

What is your budget for new grinder?

Would highly recommend a premium hand grinder(steel burrs) if you just make 3-4 cups a day.

Else , maybe a secondhand electric grinder.

I think lowkl is letting go his Eureka Mignon. Can contact him if you are interested.
