Bottom Line: do not buy, it does not do what it says it will do, buy a solis maestro instead
Positive Product Points

looks okay, will grind the beans

Negative Product Points

this machine is crap, barely better than a blade, grind is far from consistent, will not work properly with espresso machines

Detailed Commentary

this machine is a brutal rip off. for $60 one barely gets ground coffee that is any better than a blade grinder. it is completely false advertising to say this machine is suitable for espresso. it will not blow up your espresso machine but the coffee it produces is bland, flat, and lacking crema. i just received a solis maestro grinder, and it is wonderful. although twice the price of the capresso it does what it says it will do with fantastic results. get a solis and send this thing back to the shelf, the dump or wherever.

Buying Experience

williams sonoma should take this thing off the shelf, and every other store that sells it
