For seven bucks, a very decent machine easily worth twice the price ;-)

Negative Product Points
At the price paid, none.
Just bought the Starbucks Barista for seven bucks at a thrift store. It's the first burr grinder I've found at a thrift store after months of looking. For that price it's a bargain. Saves me using the Mokka hand grinder when I want an espresso - another thrift store find for four bucks!!!
I suppose one day, when I own a La Pavoni Europicola, I'll buy a more expensive grinder. But with the Delonghi machine i have, it's just fine - better than retail espresso places, imo. I recently went to one of the highly touted espresso places where I live and thought their product was awful. Bitter, disgusting espresso. I think the results I get at home are much better.
