Bottom Line: A great grinder, if you can find one that works to its full potential
Mark Prince (quality: 8.3) 01.16.2000 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: If Starbucks has this on sale for $90 or less, and the often do, it is the best grinder for the price.
Margaret (quality: 3.3) 01.24.2000 Rating: 8.8

Dave B (quality: 4.0) 02.10.2000 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: The best addition to my coffee equipment yet!
Scott (quality: 3.5) 02.12.2000 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Good, and delivers an even fine grind. But needs a finer grind setting.  Small, quiet, and "not too expensive" Easy to clean.
Jim Robin (quality: 8.3) 02.17.2000 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: A simple, well-designed, highly capable grinder for home espresso
Java Man (Espressopithecus) (quality: 7.3) 07.10.2000 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: This machine, the Solis 166, may be a very cost-effective grinder for you if you know it will grind fine enough for your machine.
Jin Yong (quality: 6.0) 07.16.2000 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: It may be a noisy, messy grinder but still a good deal if you can get it at $95.
Gianni Angel (quality: 4.5) 08.26.2000 Rating: 9.2
