Andrew Sullivan (quality: 9.2) 01.08.2008 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: The best coffee grinder I've ever used, but you'd think they'd provide higher build quality for that kind of price.
Teemu Pihlatie (quality: 9.0) 09.09.2005 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: The gold standard of dosered home espresso grinders - not without its faults (no grinder is perfect) but still good value for money
Andre Preoteasa (quality: 8.6) 02.23.2005 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: Buy this grinder once and never look back
Brendan Getchel (quality: 8.6) 01.22.2002 Rating: 9.2

Lars H (quality: 8.4) 06.24.2002 Rating: 9.6
Bottom Line: He ain't heavy, he's my grinder :)
CAPRI GERMAN-AUSTRIAN (quality: 8.3) 03.05.2009 Rating: 8.6

Matt Jacobs (quality: 7.8) 09.07.2005 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: This is a no-worries, no-fuss grinder, that simply does it's job extremely well. And it looks damn fine while doing it too!
Nate Mayweather (quality: 7.8) 09.21.2004 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: I can't imagine upgrading to another grinder, or this ever breaking -- but if a new doser(less) kit  were to come out, I would definately upgrade the machine with it.  Other than that, this is pretty much the standard for quality grinding.

Bottom Line: Bottom line - this is the best grinder on the market.  Period.
Tim Lake (quality: 7.5) 01.28.2010 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Commercial quality for the home.  Quickly adjustable and repeatable. Lifetime of use looks likely.
