Pascal Diamond (quality: 4.1)
Bottom Line: Great looks, pity it couldn't deliver on the grind.
Ola Bovin (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: Grinder could last a life time if the burrs, auger, bearing and adjustment had been made from higher quality and precision. Motor and the casing is heavy and strong. I like the way it looks.

Bottom Line: Expensive Grinder for Drip and Press, not worth it for Espresso.
