If you can find really cheap buy it for a friend who isn't a coffee fiend, they will feel important.
Positive Product Points
I bought this grinder before the Maestro was released, so at the time I got it for a great price of $75. The grinder works great for my Saeco Classico at a setting of 2 and I got a good press pot grind at a 6. So I am happy that I can cover the spectrum of grinds. I enjoy beating the machine every morning to knock the grounds out of the chute, it helps my anger management :-)
Negative Product Points
STATIC!!!! CRAPPY CHUTE!!!! All these things have been said of this grinder. I hate having to remove the anti-static guard, turn machine on again to get other grinds to fall, and lastly use my brush to get the remaining powder out. It statics most on the corser settings, and clumps for espresso. It is loud, but not unbearable.
I have used this grinder daily for a year now, and I have been happy with it... now I want to get the Maestro, which is superior in every way, but the Mulino was decent for it's time, when all you could chose was the Starbucks model or the Mulino in the $100 price range. I like how I can go from espresso to press without too many headaches. After about one month I got good at the whole process off cleaning the chute so I didn't mind too much. This grinder will impress those who are used to their blade grinder so if you decide to upgrade you can sell it to a friend cheap and it will do a great job of doing daily drip coffee.
Bought off e-bay from a guy who got it for christmas but didn't drink coffee for $75.
