John Hansvick (quality: 4.4) 12.01.2002 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: Great grinder IF you like city roast and beyond.
Charles Dow (quality: 4.5) 12.10.2003 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Good for drip grinds, quiet, indifferent ergonomics
Heather Delanghe (quality: 4.5) 07.23.2005 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: A good disposable entry-level burr grinder that is worth exactly what you pay for it -- ie not much...
Alan Jarrett (quality: 4.5) 05.23.2008 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: This is just a workhorse and affordable for most. Solid, dependable, consistent and durable.
Steven Zaat (quality: 4.6) 12.31.2003 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Good for moderate espresso machine, but it can not make fine enough coffee for a more sophisticated (>500) machine.
FESTIZIO ! (quality: 4.7) 12.21.2005 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: A good value for a good burr.
Fred Houts (quality: 4.7) 03.27.2004 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Fun while it lasted.
Tony Gilnett (quality: 5.0) 01.06.2003 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: This is a top of it's class grinder and will work for years.
Allen Ginzburg (quality: 5.0) 06.26.2008 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: So you think a $100 grinder won't work for espresso... think again!
Shaun Yasaki (quality: 5.0) 06.17.2009 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: I would buy this again for $100.
Daniel Goodland (quality: 5.0) 02.10.2006 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Great machine for coffee, not necessarily espresso.
Jacob McDonald (quality: 5.2) 03.22.2004 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Excellent value! Highly recommended.
Donald Blum (quality: 5.3) 04.07.2002 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: A good all-around grinder for everything, but don't expect the grind settings and doser that better espresso grinders have.
J. Westy (quality: 5.3) 07.17.2003 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Solid "introduction" grinder, but lacks consistency for espresso
Chris Mistler (quality: 5.3) 06.10.2009 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: Avoid this one.
Scott Boje (quality: 5.3) 08.20.2005 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: After three years, grind is very uneven.
Larry Viers (quality: 5.5) 05.09.2006 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Solid entry level grander for drip to espresso.  My friend raved about the crème a.  May save up to 40% in coffe bean use over blade grinder
Gene Sparks (quality: 5.5) 05.31.2005 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Buy this and spend your savings on beans. Excellent!
Mark Rabin (quality: 6.0) 02.18.2006 Rating: 9.2

John Denver (quality: 6.0) 01.29.2003 Rating: 5.8
