The culmination of years of research and experience with premium burr sets and their own iterative design, Option-O's Mizen burrs have been developed to serve a key role in determining the performance of their grinders—just as the mizenmast does for a ship.
Featuring a fine-tuned variation on the popular cast burr geometry and profile—with their proprietary Moonshine finishing process providing unique surface properties to further accentuate the potential cup quality—the 64mm Mizen Omni burrs have been designed as an all-purpose set to excel in fine grinding for espresso use as well as coarser grinding for pour over and other brew methods.
Yielding a grind distribution and corresponding profile that balances clarity and flavour separation without sacrificing body and mouthfeel, the Mizen Omni burrs are best suited for those seeking an all-purpose burr set for medium to light roasts, and can be enjoyed with any roast degree.
Each burr is flat ground to a 0.005mm (5 micron) specification and finished with propietary Moonshine treatment process to provide them unique surface properties to maximise the potential of their grind quality.
Includes two spacer shims for installation on Pre-August 2022 model Lagom P64 grinders.
When used for espresso, the Omni burrs provide enhanced flavour separation and clarity in the cup, showcasing the flavours of the coffee terroir and processing without sacrificing the body/mouthfeel you would expect with traditional flat burrs. The unique surface finish of the Moonshine process produces relatively low fines, which equates to clean and sweet characteristics in the cup. The Omni burrs are suitable for all roast levels, and are optimised for those who enjoy medium roast level and/or lighter.
When used for coarser grinding (e.g. pour over or immersion brew), the Omni burrs produce a highly uniform grind with relatively low fines and a distribution that is slightly broader than that of the SSP Unimodal burrs but still rather focused relative to traditional flat burrs. The net result is the ability to achieve complex and juicy cups with satisfying mouthfeel and minimal astringency.
