Bottom Line: This is a terrific grinder and an extraordinary value - espresso results in the cup are right up there with the most expensive grinders - easy to get from espresso to French Press and back
Hal Remz (quality: 9.0) 06.20.2014 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: I would buy this again in a heartbeat. I would also buy anthing from this company almost just to get the unsurpassed service they provide. This confidence was shaken by the failure of the fixed burr holder.

Bottom Line: Overall, it's a very solid grinder for the price you pay and I'm not sure that you can do better for $300.  Solid build quality, excellent customer service, and excellent grind quality.  I couldn't ask for more.
David Jones (quality: 8.0) 05.21.2011 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: There is a one grinder that can do it all.
Brett Holland (quality: 6.0) 07.13.2011 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Great precision and variable control of grind size.
Ben Hirsch (quality: 6.0) 01.31.2011 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Great all in one grinder, and best at this price point.
Sam Decock (quality: 9.0) 01.28.2012 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: If you are looking for a do-everything workhorse that excels across the entire grind spectrum without the $500+ price tag, this is the grinder for you. It is aesthetically pleasing, simple and easy to use, and has a world class customer service backing.
William Ellerman (quality: 1.3) 04.24.2013 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: After 1 year of almost daily use the Preciso grinder has proven to produce the perfect grind every time.
Howie Cohen (quality: 4.3) 03.12.2012 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Its an OK grinder. Read my review.
Donald Varona (quality: 9.0) 05.24.2012 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Excellent grinder for a very wide range of grinding needs-- including espresso (or so I hear).
Mike P (quality: 7.0) 03.22.2012 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Great grinder, and great company that cares about their product and customer service
Richard Buckberg (quality: 6.5) 01.25.2012 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Hard to imagine a consumer grinder better than this.  Grinds awesomely good coffee!
Derian Julihn (quality: 5.7) 04.06.2012 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: A good grinder but not without it's flaws
Paul Curtis 01.13.2012 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: A small and inexpensive change could really make this machine much better.
Nick C (quality: 10.0) 06.02.2014 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Wonderful grinder, whose greatest stength, adjustment mechanism, is also it's greatest weakness.
Howard Karger 04.26.2015 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: This is a good machine for light and occasional use, but not necessarily as a daily grinder for 8 or so cups a day. While the initial grind is good the long-term longevity is questionable.
Damian S (quality: 10.0) 11.21.2013 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: I'd absolutely buy from Baratza again, but not this machine.  As long as they keep trying and the grind is great, they've got my business.  Vario next?
Katie Robinson (quality: 10.0) 10.05.2013 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: Breaks down all the time.
Omar B 01.22.2013 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: Nice while it lasts. High failure rate. Nice company though.
Jim Coffou (quality: 2.0) 03.11.2015 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: Quality control seems to be an issue, customer satisfaction not on their radar.
Eli KUSLANSKY (quality: 1.0) 06.23.2014 Rating: 3.6
Bottom Line: Look at other brands
Paul Randesi 10.31.2012 Rating: 3.4
Bottom Line: Could have been a great machine for the price point if they could figure out how to keep the grind settings calibrated correctly.
Robert Fitts (quality: 5.6) 02.14.2012 Rating: 2.4
Bottom Line: Considering a Baratza Preciso? Do yourself a favor, don't.
Paul Jay (quality: 1.7) 09.13.2014 Rating: 2.0
Bottom Line: This is an unreliable machine with poor build quality. I've now had three of them stop working.
