Bob Abbott (quality: 6.0) 02.20.2004 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: If you do drip or have a Starbucks espresso machine -- works fine, but it is a "lightweight" compared to other brands for little more $$.
Bongo BCBeanBoy (quality: 6.0) 12.27.2002 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Yes it's pricey, but not as much as others and works burrfectly - a burrfect burrchase.
Bren Dollard (quality: 6.0) 07.13.2007 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: A bargain and everyone wants a bargain, right?
Chris (quality: 4.7) 06.12.2001 Rating: 7.2

Bottom Line: For seven bucks, a very decent machine easily worth twice the price ;-)
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).
Daniel Hughes 12.12.2008 Rating: 6.8
