Bottom Line: Best grinder for the money bar none.  Top recommendation for anyone wanting a great grinder that is not dedicated to just espresso.
Bob O‘Neal (quality: 2.5) 12.12.2001 Rating: 8.8

Will Jennings (quality: 4.0) 12.16.2001 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: Best in its price class.
Bill Miano (quality: 4.0) 02.20.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Must-have entry-level grinder if you want high quality espresso without breaking the bank. You will have to upgrade eventually.
Jonathan Rodgers (quality: 4.0) 04.06.2004 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: I cannot honestly recommend this machine. Indeed, with great disapointment and some satisfaction, I threw it in the trash today and ordered a Rocky.
Bo Harrison (quality: 4.3) 08.07.2004 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: Good looks with a tricky design.
Tom Be (quality: 4.3) 10.28.2003 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: Maestro+ makes powdery grind and bitter coffee
C Becker (quality: 4.4) 10.06.2005 Rating: 0.0
Bottom Line: Beans other than black cat refuse to feed into the burrs.  Totally useless -  I literally smashed it on the garage floor (picture inside).
