Great grind, variable settings is a nice bonus. Bottom line is my espresso now tastes great.
Negative Product Points
Not sure why they made the grinding timer-based. An on/off operating procedure would be preferable.
Best part of the deal - it was on sale for $129 for Mothers Day. I‘m getting great shots with loads ‘o crema with a Delonghi pump machine. I hope my mom doesn‘t read that last sentence... This is also the only burr grinder I‘ve been able to find in a store in my city. I‘ve tried the Braun espresso mill at a friend‘s house and there‘s no comparison - the Starbucks machine produces a much finer grind, certainly fine enough for my espresso machine. I haven‘t seen the need to do the ‘Solis adjustment‘ which I‘ve read about with other reviews of this product. I assume that‘s mostly for high-end machines.
