Positive Product Points

Relatively affordable grinder capable of knocking out ultrafine espresso grind.

Negative Product Points

Fairly cheap design, but probably won‘t wear out before the burrs dull a few years down the road.

Detailed Commentary

Bought as a result of Schomer‘s favorable review, which appears quite accurate in my experience.  I‘ve got this thing set three clicks coarser than the finest notch.  At anything lower, the end result is shots that take 35 seconds to pull, yielding a watery puck, bitter espresso and a pissed off self -- but that‘s exactly the kind of grind variability you want if you‘re going to get the most out of Miss Silvia.
