Positive Product Points

excellent grinder with unlimited grind settings.  Durable metal body, consistent grind.  Absolutly no problems.  Compact size with profesional quality and grind. Very easy to use and set.  Only a small amount of coffee doesn't reach the doser hence minimal stale coffee left that is very easy to brush out.

Negative Product Points

The hopper pops off sometimes too easy.  Not much to say that I don't like about it.

Detailed Commentary

I can't believe that there aren't many many more reviews of this grinder.  This grinder is great and a huge step over the Pavoni pgc that I had previously.  It is quiet. powerful, grinds very consistently, does not burn the beans and is small enough to fit on the counter.  Its unlimited grind settings allow for the finest of grinds.  Probably not for someone who wants to use it for both espresso and drip coffee but I don't, I only grind for espresso.  If you need a grinder with a huge hopper then this also isn't for you.  What it is, is the best profesional quality grinder that is sized for the home and the price is only $300.  I've never used a mazer mini and strongly considered one over the MCF but the size, way way bigger, and price of the mazzer, way more made the choice for me and I couldn't be happier.  By the way my espresso machine is a La Pravoni Professional.  I can't say enough great things about this grinder
