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.
Tom Oravec (quality: 4.7) 09.26.2005 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: You CAN make espresso and even ristretto with this machine

Bottom Line: grind is ok
D R (quality: 9.5) 07.20.2011 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Nothing fancy, but gets the job done (if what you want is a uniform, small grind).
Bongo BCBeanBoy (quality: 6.0) 12.27.2002 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Yes it's pricey, but not as much as others and works burrfectly - a burrfect burrchase.
Susie L (Roxie's mom) (quality: 5.0) 04.17.2004 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: I highly recommend this grinder and would buy it again.
Mike Silvey (quality: 6.5) 02.20.2002 Rating: 8.0

Wes Simonds (quality: 4.0) 07.06.2001 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Solis 177/Mulino: Excellent grinder, *not* to be confused with Starbucks unit
Mark (quality: 4.5) 04.01.2001 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Good product. Not perfect, but pretty good for the price
Stephen Bozler (quality: 8.3) 08.23.2001 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Good form and function at a comparatively inexpensive price point.
John Eubanks (quality: 8.6) 04.27.2002 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: I am pleased overall with the Barista, but now my appetite is whetted for a better grinder like the Rocky or Mazzer!
Oliver L (quality: 6.0) 10.13.2008 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: I'm very happy with this machine and with the espresso I get routinely from the grounds it producess in my Gaggia semi-auto.
