Detailed Commentary

I‘ve used this grinder since buying it at Starbuck‘s several years ago. It‘s an Estro, which is now Saeco. No longer sold by Starbuck‘s, when I bought it they were practically giving them away at less than $50.00 a pop.  A burr grinder that‘s reliable and easy to clean, without a doser. The grinds fall into a plastic basket in the front. I‘m about to buy a Rocky, since I‘m moving from my present espresso machine (an old Starbuck‘s Buon Caffee 330) to a Livia 90. The Saeco burr grinder does the job on the Buon Caffee when set on 2.5, though I‘ve been informed that for more powerful espresso units like the Livia, Sylvia, and others, that it will not grind fine enough. Also, without the doser, loading the shot and clean up with the Saeco basket can be a bit of a mess.
