Great grind, relativly quiet, top discharge, high-quality plastic, nice look.
Negative Product Points
Cannot grind coarse enough for percolators.
After suffering for a year with my first burr grinder purchase (the Capresso that everyone hates), the motor finally went out, a tossed it in the garbage, and I never looked back! Then I bought the Solis Maestro!
This puppy is excellent. I've been able to finely adjust the grind to produce perfect espresso with plenty of crema from my discontinued Capresso ETC 123. I'm really looking forward to many more years of experience with this machine and my new Capresso Ultima.
The only disadvantage to this one, and it's really a small disadvantage, is that it cannot grind coarse enough for percolators. Yes, I know percolators don't make great coffee compared to espresso machines, but when you have a lot of guests that don't know the difference, well... ;o)
I like the Solis and would highly recommend it. It's held up well and continues to perform and deliver a quality grind.
