Makes killer espresso, just make sure you have extra chutes and hoppers...
Positive Product Points
Infinite adjustibility (as close as it gets anyway) results in perfectly ground coffee for "god" shots. It really does an excellent job grinding beans.
Negative Product Points
Best used as an espresso grinder as it take some work getting it dialed in. It is too time consuming to go back and forth from drip to espresso. I've had several problems with the hopper and chute. It came with a crystal clear plastic chute and hopper. The 3rd hopper was made of slightly hazzy polycarbonate and has been excellent. I am on my 5th chute, which is already cracking. I am waiting for a polycarbonate chute.
The machine arrived well packed. It is quite large and very nice looking unit (about as tall as my Silvia). It is quite loud when operated, but it's not a big deal. I bought it because it was priced right at the time for the review it received (conical burrs strip the bean into longer strips resulting in excellent espresso). I do recommend it if the hopper and chute are made of polycarbonate, so check on that first. I did hear recently from EPN that this grinder is now running at $800 new, so I'd more likely get a Mazzer instead.
Very Good! Espresso Parts Northwest has been of great help keeping me in supply of hoppers and chutes.
