Straight to portafilter a neat thing. Looks good on counter. Quiet and fast enough. Easy to clean. Price seems low for features & perceived quality.
Negative Product Points
Extremely difficult to set up properly. Hard to replicate results. Straight to portafilter messy. Grinder can be set so low that burrs touch and shave metal off.
Am I smoking crack? I'm either grinding so coarse it looks like asphalt or I'm choking my (pressurized portafilter) Capresso Espresso Pro...I'm adjusting the grinder with beans in the hopper (Like the directions state) but there doesn't seem to be much difference between extremely fine and extremely coarse. Anything but nearly full coarse and I'm choked. The exact same beans in my 10 year old Braun grinder pull great shots. I found one alt.coffee post that had the same problem but no one had any answers. Any help? I'd like to think that I'm missing something as most other reviews are stellar.
Wholelattelove is a great place to buy from. I'm debating sending the unit back and spending another $70 for a prosumer grinder but I'm sure WLL will honor my return.
