Detailed Commentary

Buying a burr grinder for espresso is not straightforward.  I suspect that most people who grind their own coffee are espresso enthusiasts, but most low-priced, readily available burr grinders do not grind fine enough for espresso.  In my expreience this includes Braun, DeLonghi and Melitta.  Hence, if you want a good burr grinder for espresso, expect to pay over $50.

The finest setting of this unit is far from suitable for espresso.  As it is advertised for espresso, I had to rank its quality very low.

Buying Experience

Costco, as usual, treats irs customers perfectly.
