Looks great, works great, definitely a strong competitor for Rocky.
Positive Product Points
This is a nice-looking grinder with a satisfyingly adjustable grind. The doser cleans itself out pretty well, not too many wasted grounds.
Negative Product Points
Adjustment is kind of a pain. I think I'll only use this for espresso grinds; going back and forth with drip grinds would take forever.
I'm pretty darn happy with this grinder so far. I finally believe what all those people have been saying: without a good grinder, you're just playing at this coffee thing. It's changed my whole coffee experience for the better.
It's lovely to look at. Aesthetically, it's an easy choice. There were a few minor mars on the finish, and the logo wasn't stuck down all the way when it arrived, but these are really small problems.
Other than that, smooth sailing. It took a long time to dial in a good grind due to the very precise adjustment mechanism. This was a one-time pain, though. From now on it's just tweaking, and that is easy. I do kind of wish I'd kept my whirlyblade grinder for the occasional pot of drip coffee. Ah well, I like Americanos just fine.
The doser is pretty good. I don't use it as a doser per se; I put in the appropriate amount of beans and just dose the whole thing out. But the vanes do a good job of sweeping out the grounds. You still need a brush to get them out of the neck, though. Again, minor inconvenience. Grind, brush, dose. Not a problem.
I've heard complaints that it grinds too slowly. I hadn't noticed this. I flip the switch and putter around for a moment and it's done. Not a problem in my book.
I also haven't had any problems with the doser fork spacing. I use the portafilter that came with Silvia and it fits just fine.
Everything went smoothly with espressoparts.com. I'd recommend them.
Three Month Followup
I liked it at 3 months.
One Year Followup
Two years later, actually... the doser has broken several times, due to one silly little spring which isn't up to the task. It's an easy fix, but kind of a pain. If I had to do it all over again I'd get the doserless model.
