Bottom Line: The golden standard of what a dedicated espresso grinder should be...
Positive Product Points

-Grinds superbly and consistently.
- the golden standard of what a grinder should be to the least
-Cheap on ebay if you can get a deal.
-built like a tank
- chews beans up in seconds (fills double basket in 5 seconds which is plenty sufficient)
-stepless for precise adjustments

Negative Product Points

-Not very practical if you use other brewing methods  as it is stepless
-not portable cause it weighs at least 35 lbs
-In home setting the hopper is impractical because  just way too tall

Detailed Commentary

I owned mine for about half a year. After I wanted to have superb espresso drinks. I did heavy research and realized the grinder comes first.

Every so often people sell used Super Jolly's (branded or rebranded) for reasonable prices. Actually last week one was sold for $133 US( I was also bidding as I do love this grinder). Honestly, the quality of a equipment determines the quality of a coffee is produced. Why settle for less? You use bad equipment...you get bad coffee. There are ways to be cost efficient but you just have to use your ingenuity in order to do so. My budget was 500 dollars as told by my parents and I was able to pull out this fantastic grinder and a modified machine single boiler machine.

Getting back to the point.... Consistent is the goal of the grinder. The goal is to produce an equal extraction so that the grinds flavors are extracted smoothly in a consistent fashion. This grinder pretty much does that. This grinder is not a toy and does what its supposed to do. Grind and grind away . Every time my family invites people over. They just stare at the giant grinder sitting on the counter. They ask me (the home barista) what's the difference. Once I start grinding the aroma starts wafting in the air. I pull the shot; make them a cappuccino. When they take the first sip, they just are silent in bliss.

Without this grinder I can't make guests enter the realm of espresso bliss. Everyone initially believes espresso is a hardcore drink full of bitterness until they take the first sip.

Buying Experience

I'm still esploring the espresso world but have taken the initiative to better my espresso experience. Being a student who can't afford much pushed me to take what I have touse it effectively. As a result I currently own a fully modified gaggia single boiler machine.
