EDIT: I was too keen and didn’t realise that the coupon code nullifies the free international shipping. If you meet the US$299 free shipping criteria by buying something else from them, it’s still a great deal. However, if you just want the grinder, I’d recommend buying from the Alternative Brewing eBay store which is still an ATL, at this link using HGTNOV.
Had my eye on this grinder for a while now and I found a coupon code - OURCOFFEESHELTER - that brings it all the way down to just ~$410 AUD
including free shipping. Unfortunately, I already ordered it this morning via Alternative Brewing's eBay using the HGTNOV code (though that price of $470 for local stock is still miles better than anything else I've seen).
The downside of ordering it direct is that it won't ship until next week, but it'll be express intl. from their manufacturer in China direct so I doubt it'll take that long.
For those who don't know, this is a very well regarded, slightly newer entry to the zero retention grinder scene with no competition until you hit the DF64 and can even compete with the Niche Zero, but depending on the style of coffees you like to drink this may well suit your tastes better. Plus, I happen to think it looks much nicer than the DF64.
