Bottom Line: It will either be the first grinder that you buy or the last grinder that you need; it depends upon you.
A C C (quality: 9.0) 01.25.2012 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Great grinder, but an adequate doser.
Lance Goffinet (quality: 8.9) 08.20.2003 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: Absolutely the best grinder for under $250 if you cannot afford the Rancillio Rocky or Mazzer Mini. It is a 10+ for the money.
Mark Babbe (quality: 8.2) 09.07.2006 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: If your espresso budget is tight, this is the grinder to get.
Patrick T (quality: 7.7) 11.14.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Great value with enough quality that you may not need to spend hundreds more to improve upon.
Kurt Swanson (quality: 7.3) 01.29.2008 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: By far the best choice in price range
Jeroen Vriesendorp (quality: 7.3) 04.20.2000 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder: grinds anywhere from vac pot to ristretto
Simon Wilson (quality: 7.1) 12.19.2001 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Good/Excelent FIRST espresso grinder
Walter MacEachern (quality: 7.0) 02.19.2009 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Requires time and patience to use properly. The doser makes a mess. The grind is wonderful.
Kris Grainger (quality: 7.0) 01.29.2000 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Consistant, fine as you want it grind with professional results. Shame about the casing and the doser though.
Robert Colin Newell (quality: 6.8) 05.23.2004 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Fix the feet and the flaky doser and you will have yourself a grinder that just makes the passing grade.
David Walsh (quality: 6.8) 09.07.2007 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Solid, reliable, stepped grinder - gets the job done.
Ed Gianni (quality: 6.8) 03.24.2001 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: A must for my Classic Gaggia.
John Gill (quality: 6.8) 07.06.2002 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: A good all around coffee grinder but not an exceptionally good grinder for espresso, due to its lack of adjustment points.
Jason Haeger (quality: 6.6) 10.05.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: A decent beginners grinder, but not the workhorse it could be with its solid construction and commercial grade burrs.
Antony Prince (quality: 6.6) 02.16.2000 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: The best grinder I have ever used, bring on the Rocky any day ;)
Al Sterling (quality: 6.3) 12.30.2005 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: This is your best value "starting point" to properly support your espresso cravings.
Daniel Roach (quality: 6.3) 08.30.2004 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Essential part of any beginners espresso setup
Ryan Mullett (quality: 6.0) 04.17.2012 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: "I'LL BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR!!!" ... but seriously it's a good, quality, "entry level" burr grinder that's a great starter unit for the home barista.
Matthias Konig (quality: 6.0) 11.21.2001 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: Don‘t buy it unless you are sure you like/need the dosing mechanism
