Saw others mentioning some china brand grinder. Are they any good? Any recommendation.

Google reviews of "600N"  and balance it against the fact they cost 20% of a European branded grinder.

Also, what's your preferred brewing method? If only espresso using unpressurized portafilter, I would guess your needs are pretty high standard; then maybe not good enough.

Espresso and unpressurised. Trying to get the bare minimum and cheapest for espresso. 20% of 2-3k sounds lovely

thanks for the link, those prices look nice!
my chinese is rubbish, it would be difficult for me to navigate taobao and find these kind of stuff
any idea how long it takes to reach Malaysia and the shipping cost?
won't we get taxed?

damnit, might buy some coffee stuff instead of that new pc upgrade I was saving for sweat.gif

Nah, @razorkid's talking about cold brewing. Grind and brew 12hrs overnight in fridge for a smooth low acidity, low bitterness drink
I reckon roughly 1 month is not too bad but 500g is alot bro - 1:4 ratio thats 2litres of coffee concentrate

As I thought, I think I will separate them into 2 250g batches, I usually go for 1:4 or 1:4.5 using much less ground coffee
I have the sudden urge to make some cold brew after having one last week
