Gino Magnotta (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Despite a few frustrating quirks, this grinder can grind - consistently and at a fair price. In the end, this is what a grinder needs to do. There are better grinders out there, but they also cost more. Simple as that.

Bottom Line: If your serous about your coffee, buy it, I dont think you will be disappointed. I would like to add that buying high quality products that last for years do not contribute to our growing waste problem.
