A small burr grinder that can grind anything except espresso.
Positive Product Points
Well it grinds your coffee beans. Not bad looking and takes up little space. Appears to be similar parts as the Gaggia MDF so it's a consistent grind that works well for french press.
Negative Product Points
Can not grind for espresso. The finest setting is just too coarse and shots are pulled though a Gaggia Classic at Starbucks speeds. There also isn't a wide range of settings and it's fairly loud.
I got this grinder for my dad because he wanted space and no doser. Being a proud owner of a Gaggia MDF, I figured the MM would fit the bill. The body is plastic and comes the standard color spectrum of white or black. It is much smaller than the MDF and grinds in a similar fashion, but there are far less grind choices and just can't get to espresso fineness. I adhere to a school of thought that your grinder should be able to choke your espresso machine. The MDF pasts this test, but the MM doesn't even come close. I tried using the Classic's pressurized portafilter, but still had consistent underextraction. For other brewing methods it works fabulously. Whenever I'm at my parents, I always brew a nice bold cup of french press. The noise is slightly irritating and you have to hold down the grind button, as apposed to the MDF which can be switched on/off.

Essentialespresso was good. Nothing to complain or commemorate.
