Bottom Line: Grinder is messy and does not produce finely ground coffee - very disappointing.
Positive Product Points

Well made and attractive.

Negative Product Points

Messy during grinding, no automatic shutoff, will not produce fine coffee grounds

Detailed Commentary

I'm giving up on this one after 6 months. Shoots grounds during grinding no matter what. Has never approached an expresso-level grind on the finest setting; likewise, drip grind is so coarse that extra coffee must be used to get satisfactory flavor. I know it's not the most expensive grinder in the world but I had much better luck with a previous, less-expensive grinder until I wore it out. My reasonably-priced Briel expresso machine works great so I thought I'd try their grinder...I can't recommend that you do the same.

Buying Experience

I had no problem buying this grinder online and it arrived within a week.
