Detailed Commentary

Well built and very easy to dial in the best grind.  Repeatable restults are easy if you are switching between different grind types for different brewing methods.   My wife likes french press and I like using my chemex and it very easy to change the settings to get what you want.  The other thing that really amazed me are the lack of fines when grinding for french press.  There is almost zero residue!  The other surprise is that since no grinds get stuck anywhere in the grinder, when I put in 40 grams of beans, I get 40 grams of ground coffee out which makes things quite a bit easier.  Light years ahead of my old Krups burr.  Coffee tastes cleaner and much sweeter with the Preciso.  I did a side by side tasting from the french press with the Krups vs the Preciso and my wife could not believe it was the same coffee just a different grinder.  You would  have to spend 3 or 4 times as much to get a better grinder I think.  I purchased this because we will be getting an espresso machine and I did not want to have two seperate grinders.

Buying Experience

Point and click. Very easy.
