Holds lots of beans, easy operation, disassembly and cleanout. Fairly compact. Rugged.
Negative Product Points
Cheesy operating knob & lexan hopper. Loud.
We have been using the Antigua for some time, and it has never missed a beat, even when the head of a steel bolt (that had somehow got into a bag of coffee beans) got into the burrs. The grinder did its best to grind up the bolt along with the beans, doing minor damage to the burrs. We're still using it, with no perceptible change in the consistency of the grind. I take this as testimony to a certain ruggedness in this unit.
We use the grinder only on the middle (drip) setting, and are very satisfied with the results. If you use a grinder many times a day, you may want to consider something else, as the Antigua is VERY loud. We don't use it enough to be bothered. The only annoyances with this machine are that the timer knob tends to fall off occasionally when the machine is running, and as it has aged, the clear plastic coffee hopper starts to vibrate out of the housing from time to time. I regard both of these as minor nuisances.
It does not move about on the counter while operating, and it is compact enough to fill under the standard cabinet height. The electrical supply cord is short (@3 feet), but this is true of most of our newer countertop appliances.
