Bottom Line: old saying you get what you pay for  any one want to buy my breville
Positive Product Points

looks good grinds ok but better for plunger etc
mind you its a lot better than the first burr grinder I bought I took it back the next day (kenwood) it was rubbish

Negative Product Points

doesn't grind fine enough to  get that 25 second extraction to produce good espresso,

Detailed Commentary

I bought it on a budget its probably one of the best of cheap burrs
I prefer to set it on espresso setting  it does give not a bad flavour. But I find if i have it on Turkish setting it makes it too bitter and it still extracts to fast.

its easy to clean reasonably priced and looks good.
But if you want to create the perfect home espresso and can afford a mini mazzer buy that.

Remember the espresso starts with the grind.
I've tried espresso on my home machine with coffee ground from a mazzer just the other day and I got that nice 25 second extraction and once you've  experienced that you can't go back

Buying Experience

bought from Harvey Norman got it at good price
