Review: Pure Fresh Electric Grinder

This is by far the most affordable and portable coffee grinder that can yield consistent espresso grind.

I’ve been a fan of the Breville Smart Grinder for more than two years and I’ve been rather happy with it. For home use it’s perfect. Being my primary grinder, especially in these times of pandemic, I do get paranoid with the wear and tear. It’s an appliance, for one thing so the parts are proprietary. Don’t get me wrong — the only issues I have had with it was clumping due to the heated burrs. These times of pandemic however — I can live without an espresso machine but not a grinder. Freshly ground beans are way more important than the coffee method.

Datablitz now selling PS3 Super Slim for PHP 11,150 (250GB) and PHP 11,650 (500GB)

Datablitz (add them on Facebook!) is now selling the PS3 SUPER SLIM in their retail stores. With the console still pulling in a lot of new games + the ability to play the same PS3 games on your PS Vita, there’s every reason to finally dig into Sony’s console ecosystem.

Best of all — it’s dirt cheap. There are many games to look forward to in the coming months including Playstation All Stars, Beyond, and the free to play Dust 514 over the Internet.

I got the PS3 Slim when it retailed for PHP 16,xxx and I have no regrets. Now that it’s about PHP 5,000 more affordable, I feel happy for those who are about to take the plunge into this amazing piece of work.
