Detailed Commentary

This grinder is able to produce a great grind. Its not that easy though. The timer is touchy and hard to adjust (I destroyed a fork and that works fine). But once you get it right you can forget about it and the doserless concept is great as it means not freshly ground coffee all the time. Then look at the build. I could throw this off my balcony (2 stories up) and other than the funnel and the hopper which are plastic you wouldn't be able to even tell. This shows through in the looks department as well. It looks like a tank (ugly). Unfortunatly it is not stepless although it does have a lot of steps. This is easily modifyable. The main thing is that it is fast, easy (once set up), and allows you to make great espresso. If you want a great grinder at a respectable price this is for you, so long as you are prepared to work a little to get  those really great shots.

Buying Experience

Great. Sienna Coffee delivered personally and gave me 250g of fresh coffee.
