Small, high quality and cheap.....excelent value and good enough for even commercial espresso machines.
Positive Product Points
Very easy to use. Easy to clean. High quality. Small.
Negative Product Points
Not nice to look at.
I have the version without the plastic piece on the front (where the portafilter holder is) so static is absolutely no problem. The machine is very basic, other than the stepless grind adjustement and the button where you push the portafilter against, there is nothing special about the machine. I bought this one, because I liked the grind quality, and by the looks of it, all the money went to the inside of the machine. I use it with a commercial Faema 2-group machine and the result is always perfect. No mess, no fuss. If you want a medium cost grinder, that will deliver....this is the one. There are better looking grinders around, but this one is very good.
Bought it in Utrecht (The Netherlands) at Betsy's kookshop. It's a cooking shop, so not specialized in this equipment, but when I asked for info about the discs used inside the machine, they immidiately unpacked a new machine, got out the manual, and when it wasn't in there, they called their distributer to get the info! VERY good service!
Three Month Followup
This is actually a 6 month followup, but anyway : Stil very happy about the grinder. No problems at all, although there shouldn't be after 6 months! If I had to change anything on the grinder, it would probably be to add some sort of basket underneath the portfilter-holder, so ground coffee that falls of the portafilter while grinding doesn't fall on the kitchen-top. There's always some old coffee sitting in the shute, so I usually toss in a couple of beans and grind them to get the old coffee out of the shute. It's not much (half a teaspoon), but stil. All in all, I love this grinder and it's a high quality bargain.
