Great grinder! Coffee is fine, consistent, and espresso shots are incredibly smooth!
Positive Product Points
Consistent grind Incredibly adjustable You can get coffee as fine as you want, and more fine than you could possibly want It's a popular grinder, so easy to find if you want one Parts are easy to get Burrs are inexpensive and easy to change Mine grinds straight into portafilter/container (no doser) Looks Awesome!!
Negative Product Points
May have to deal with a doser if you get a model with one My Super Jolly has static like crazy. I have to grind into a bowl and stir the coffee grounds before I can use it, otherwise shots channel on one side of the basket and resulting coffee is sour and bitter
This is an excellent grinder! If you're reading these reviews and trying to justify the expense of buying one, you already know that. So stop reading reviews and buy one already : ). It is a great machine that will last your entire lifetime, and probably your kids and grand kids lifetimes, as well. But that isn't important. What is important is that the coffee you will make with this little devil is going to be the best you (or anyone drinking your espresso) have ever tasted. I upgraded to this machine from a Rossi RR45, which made excellent shots of espresso. But they weren't quite up to par to what this machine can do. The difference is in the body and roundness of the resulting drink.
My only complaint is that this grinder has static like no other. I did exchange the burrs when I received it, so that may have something to do with it.. or maybe my electrical outlets aren't grounded properly. I don't know what the issue is, but I have to grind the beans into a glass container, then stir and break up all the clumps. Then, I can dose into my portafilter and brew. If I try to grind straight into the portafilter, the resulting shot is both sour and bitter.. if you observe the bottom of the basket as the shot is pouring, you can see that only half of the holes are being utilized, and on only one side. This is a pretty big issue, considering how expensive these grinders are, but I may be unique in experiencing this.
I bought it on ebay.. not much to say. I ordered it and the seller shipped it to me.
