Wanna try a burr grinder? Go get the Maestro.................
Positive Product Points
Makes a very consistent grind. Also a very quiet machine. It looks nice, and doesn't take up too much space.
Negative Product Points
Hmmm, not many. I could do with some scale marks on the timer switch, though, i.s.o the "up to somewhere between the L and the I in "Solis"-method.
My first stand alone burr grinder. After consulting alt.coffee, kid'n geek and close to every homepage about coffee, I went for the Maestro. I drink espresso, french, mocca and even turkish/arabian every now and then, so I needed a grinder for all those. And Maestro just does it. When removing the bin after the first grind, I heard "fliing", and coffee jumped out and clung to the machine. After that, I have never had static. I tuned it for espresso on my Gaggia Coffee and was very pleased. After grinding coarser for some french, I was a bit worried about coming back to my espresso setting. No problem. It just works that well. I AM PLEASED.
Very good service from 1st line, who charged my Visa and sent the grinder to my friends in NYC, who brought it to Denmark, saving me the outrageous shipping fee. Accompanying coffee was free and good as well.
Three Month Followup
I'm still very happy. It grinds well enough for both my Gaggia Coffee and my Pavoni Pro. Static is only a problem with coarse grounds, and best of all, no grind leftovers........................
