I purchased this little grinder for when I go camping & don't want to take my electric grinder. It's small, compact, & works great for the outdoors. I bought this grinder to use with my 1 cup aluminum mini espresso maker when I go camping. The finest setting chokes out my mini espresso maker. I've yet to try the finest grind to see how it performs on my La Pavoni Professional.
It takes a while to grind enough even for a shot of espresso but when camping outdoors, I have nothing but time & enjoy spending a little extra time if it results in a fresh cup of espresso. If my friends want a shot of espresso, I make them grind their own cup.
Nevertheless, this is a great little grinder that is worth the $35 price tag.
Purchased from Kicking Horse Coffee in Invermere, BC. I've ordered several items from them before who have been a pleasure to deal with.
Three Month Followup
After 3 months, this little grinder still works great & is used exclusively for camping.
