Bottom Line: I love this machine but cant imagine spending $800 for it, a Rancilio Rocky without the doser might be the perfect home machine.
Positive Product Points

Very consistent grind, great looks and easy to place, short channel, easy to clean and work on.

Negative Product Points

Its a little slow, but very consistent.

Detailed Commentary

I didnt need a grinder but the deal was too good to pass up.   I did realized after getting it, I needed a better grinder.  I only make and drink espresso with the grinder and although its stepped, they are plenty small enough.
I have worked in italian restaurants with all sorts of grinders and espresso machines, this is among my favorite.  This looks better than most and grinds as good as most machines, just a little slower. Iunderstand this shares parts with the Rocky.  Using this at home is fine it has a small footprint, is not too tall and is attractive.

Buying Experience

I was traveling early one morning.  I stopped to get an espresso and the shop was liquidating some of its equipment.  This was their decafe grinder and had little use so I took at a great price.
