Not for espresso and does not have the quality that a $500-2,000 grinder has.

Detailed Commentary

I have tested many of the grinders listed on the previous page and this is still my favorite.  The Solis uses the same burrs and has received very good ratings as well.  Target was selling this grinder for under $40.  I now own a Solis Maestro and find they are comparable.  I have purchased two of the Antigua's and the second had many of the problems other users have complained about.  If it seems faulty, take it back for a new one.
