Bottom Line: Will yield very coarse, inconsistent grounds. And is very noisy in doing so. The "espresso"(finest) setting, is still no good unless you want to filter brew or use a french press.
Positive Product Points

Good looks
Nice price point
Not very likely to spill your coffee on your worktop

Negative Product Points

Grind is too coarse: NOT FOR MAKING ESPRESSO!
Quite inconsistend grind

Detailed Commentary

I bought the grinder to use for both my Demoka piston espresso machine and a frenchpress, however the grind from this machine at the "espresso" - finest setting was coarser than what I usually put into my french press. And at the "coarse" setting, you'd get 1/6th of a bean chunks.

I thought the machine was a DOA, so I got it replaced, with a machine that was equally incapable. The second one I received and used for 6 days was highly inconsistent in it's grinding. I tried three different types of beans, to no avail. The grinder had some kind of "mood" at times: to spit out very coarse grinds with some dust that was actually the right size, but that came wirling into the chamber.

Then there was the noise: Worst than a blender filled with nuts. I actually had some kitchencloth laying over the mid section of the machine to dampen it in operation. Some cheaper mills "interupt your conversation", this one interupts ALL conversations in your house. And those of your neighbours too!

Buying Experience

The vendor offered me superior support in changing, testing and offering me another grinder. They even "replaced" my coffee bean loss due to having wasted about 300gr. of perfectly fine organic fair trade indonesian espresso beans.
