Glad to hear there’s another SJ fan. I agree it’s a shame to have trade down for the sake of height. I almost bought a Lux D but couldn’t justify the cost for a lesser quality grinder (especially considering my SJ cost around half of it including customisations) in the end I just rearranged things.
It’s my boiler that’s the issue, even with a tamper in place of a hopper it won’t fit under. A lot of these Victorian houses have the boiler in the Kitchen. I just retired the MoccaMaster which was next to it to give me more space and just use a V60 for filter now.
I had a Mini and it was brilliant, but now I’m used to the Super Jolly and it’s speed over the Mini I don’t think I’d go back.
