Gone Gone 01.21.2008 Rating: 4.0
Bottom Line: Works for drip grind, but the Barista won't meet the needs of most baristas.
Mike Wisniewski (quality: 1.0) 03.02.2007 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: Great machine if you want your counter covered in coffee grounds.
Don Scott (quality: 6.8) 09.11.2005 Rating: 4.6
Bottom Line: You will never master espresso with this grinder, it will even make you fustrated
Rich Dadamo (quality: 5.3) 07.30.2005 Rating: 4.6
Bottom Line: More than adequate for weekend grinder but don't expect to leave it to your kids.
Mark Kunitomi 02.13.2010 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: Cheap and easy way to start making espresso at home. Unsatisfactory for improving your espresso to 'Excellence'.
Frank S (quality: 6.0) 12.29.2004 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: Summary -- A good bargain that became a doorstop when I couldn’t grind my favorite dark roast.
James Lee 12.08.2008 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Great value and good results  but don't buy if you want espresso with crema
Keith (quality: 6.0) 01.06.2001 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Solis 177 - Cheap, but for everyting else available in price range, only one worth having.
Heather Johnston (quality: 4.5) 06.27.2001 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: Does NOT grind fine enough for the Pasquini Livia 90
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.
Daniel Hughes 12.12.2008 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Decent grinder for the money, but if you're in the UK, go with the Dualit version.
Bernard Murphy 09.30.2007 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Does the job!
Robin Smith (quality: 4.5) 07.01.2001 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Buy when on sale at Starbies and you‘ll have a very nice grinder with an annoying static problem.
James Campbell 02.11.2009 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Good for everything but espresso
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 $$.
JP Cordill (quality: 8.4) 01.20.2002 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: A good starter grinder, but you'll want to upgrade very soon.
Rick Wayne (quality: 6.3) 11.15.2006 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: This is a very good grinder, overpriced as most things are but comes with a comforting 2 year warranty so just buy and grind.
Mark Farris (quality: 6.0) 01.15.2000 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: A great grinder, if you can find one that works to its full potential
