Riding In Cars With Grinders

The Mahlkonig VTA-6S on its way to project hampden.

It's corny, I know. But there's something about guys and their toys. Since I started learning about the coffee business, there's always been one grinder that I've secretly lusted after: the Mahlkonig VTA-6S. It's sheer, brutal grinding power unparalleled in a tabletop grinder. It's a monster and it weighs like a beast.

I had the opportunity to pick this grinder up over the summer and I couldn't let it by. It's a three-phase grinder, which means I still need a frequency converter to power it from a single phase source but someday...

Meanwhile, the dream lives on.
