Detailed Commentary

My first grinder.... works well, nice combo of features... I do not as of yet do espresso but filter and presspot work well with this grinder.  I got the Maestro mostly because of the price/ availability. I'm happy with the grind quality as far as drip/presspot goes... hopefully I'll get an espresso machine soon.  I really struggled for a while... I wanted a Mazzer Mini but in the end could not justify the $$ vs current needs. I figure that when I  someday get a decent espresso machine the Maestro will keep me going until I can afford that Mazzer or whatever. I really like the container/grind directly into a portafilter design.

Buying Experience

Bought it from De Luca Bros. (Alba by De Luca) in Winnipeg. I  wish they would  advertise more/better... It's a great company and they have wonderfull people.  I just happened to luck out and got some great advice from my local coffee roaster,  Black Pearl Coffee Roasters  in Winnipeg.
