Bottom Line: With a bit of tweaking, the grinder can give a very fine grind, for excellent shot results; as well as being able to do drip and french press.
D R (quality: 9.5) 07.20.2011 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Nothing fancy, but gets the job done (if what you want is a uniform, small grind).
Christophe Tyle 10.03.2010 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: For seven bucks, a very decent machine easily worth twice the price ;-)
Mark Kunitomi 02.13.2010 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: Cheap and easy way to start making espresso at home. Unsatisfactory for improving your espresso to 'Excellence'.

Michael Jevicky 02.10.2009 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Good for this level of grinder. Definitely worth the money.
Daniel Hughes 12.12.2008 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Decent grinder for the money, but if you're in the UK, go with the Dualit version.
James Lee 12.08.2008 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Great value and good results  but don't buy if you want espresso with crema
Oliver L (quality: 6.0) 10.13.2008 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: I'm very happy with this machine and with the espresso I get routinely from the grounds it producess in my Gaggia semi-auto.
Ben Hornik (quality: 2.3) 04.01.2008 Rating: 3.2
Bottom Line: Garbage
Gone Gone 01.21.2008 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: Works for drip grind, but the Barista won't meet the needs of most baristas.
X1 Owner (quality: 6.0) 11.29.2007 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: DUALIT (UK): CAN easily do AMAZING espresso WITHOUT MODIFICATION - bargain!
Nicholas Trahan 10.25.2007 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: I wish I would have gotten something with more features and a finer grind, but the coffee I make is great so it can't be all that bad, right?
Bernard Murphy 09.30.2007 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Does the job!
Loren B (quality: 5.7) 09.27.2007 Rating: 8.6
