    Chong Seng, I had a simlar discussion with kfchan on the isomac, mazzer mini & enfim best bout a month ago.
    i finally got a second hand rebadged anfim best & I must say that it’s surprisingly easy to use & the quality of my coffee just went up a few notches ;-D
    I must also say that the size is perfect as it’s not as big as the mazzer mini and it fits really well for those with limited countertop space.
    Ther Mazzer mini cost about RM2650 and is much bigger & taller than the enfim best though it is a stepless grinder.
    So far, I have tried the enfim best with a few different types of beans and I am able to get very nice espresso shots (30ml of nice thick crema in 25 secs) on my gaggia evo so I am 100% for the enfim.

    Both in the same class and price range.

    Advantage of Isomac:
    Conical Burr
    Superior when grinding for espresso
    Stainless Steel if you like stainless steel
