Bottom Line: This is a great grinder for its niche, one can get better, but you will have to pay more, and be seriously addicted to Barista quality espresso.
Ivan Spencer (quality: 7.7) 05.23.2009 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: For 179, I'd say its a deal. Plan on returning unit for lower burr replacement someday.  Grind quality is pretty consistent.
J M (quality: 6.0) 10.27.2008 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Work to unlock the potential, be patient, the price is right for entry level
Jerry Atencio (quality: 1.8) 08.20.2006 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: A Great Product!
Jesse Nice (quality: 8.3) 04.26.2008 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Good grinder with a wide range and little retention, but not fine enough control for consistent espresso.
Jim Minton (quality: 1.5) 06.09.2012 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: Piece of crap. No, I take that back.  Expensive piece of crap!
Joel Bristol (quality: 9.0) 10.27.2007 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Great grinder for the price that WILL do espresso....... but just barely.
John B (quality: 7.5) 10.29.2009 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: A reliable well-built machine for all non-espresso purposes.
John Milkey (quality: 6.0) 02.27.2013 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Great product and it comes with  the best customer service you can find.
Ken L. (quality: 5.7) 02.05.2008 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Great grinder for the price.
Kevin Welch (quality: 7.3) 08.30.2007 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Great grinder that produces great espresso and french press grinds with no static problems.  But you need to buy it from Baratza and ask for it to be factory calibrated to "fine".
Kim Moon (quality: 5.3) 01.01.2012 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: Grinds good, Fair price, looks nice. What more is it supposed to do?
Kyle Jackson (quality: 0.3) 11.16.2011 Rating: 0.6
Bottom Line: This product is a useless piece of expensive garbage.
Larry Benjamin (quality: 6.5) 06.17.2013 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: 10 Rating Across The Board
M Lawrence (quality: 8.0) 01.27.2007 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: This is a good grinder, but if it breaks I will buy something else in the hope I can get one that does not make me clean the kitchen as often ...
Mark Wise (quality: 6.0) 10.24.2010 Rating: 4.2
Bottom Line: $$$ every two years for either a new grinder or shipping/repairs!?  You gotta be kidding me.
Mattias M (quality: 7.3) 05.14.2008 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Don't buy this grinder for a Silvia . . . I regretted not paying $100 more for a Rocky.
Michael Reid (quality: 5.0) 10.08.2011 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: I can see why someone would see this and buy it, but it is simply unusable for even the experienced user let alone a novice.
Michael Ventura (quality: 6.8) 03.30.2009 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: With a little "fine tuning" per Barratza instruction - this machine will provide a very fine expresso grind.  Also great for drip and French press.
Mike Hawley (quality: 3.8) 12.20.2007 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: A solid, well built machine and a real value.
