Finally! Perfectly times espresso shots from my Gaggia Coffee!
Positive Product Points
Easily chokes my Gaggia Coffee for perfect 25 second 2.5oz espresso shots, and this is using setting 8.
Negative Product Points
A tad loud but I really have nothing else to compare it to. Also, when using the straight to portafilter technique things can get a bit on the dusty side and grind is a bit clumpy.

Finally solved my problems of making the perfect shot on my Gaggia Coffee. Using the store grinder was way too inconsistent and purchasing this burr grinder has allowed me to really dial in the timing of my shots. After reading many of the reviews I was a bit cautious about purchasing this grinder since I primarily make espresso. Some have complained that the grind is not fine enough for espresso let alone the Turkish grind that it claims to handle. Well I am pleased to report that with my first couple of test runs, a setting of 8 produced a great shot, by far the best shot in the year that I have owned this machine. I can't say that this machine will work the same for other machines, or perfectionists, but it is great for my needs. For the price and performance so far, I would definitely recommend this burr grinder.
