Bottom Line: Cheap and easy way to start making espresso at home. Unsatisfactory for improving your espresso to 'Excellence'.
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.
Michael Jevicky 02.10.2009 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Good for this level of grinder. Definitely worth the money.

Nicholas Trahan 10.25.2007 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: I wish I would have gotten something with more features and a finer grind, but the coffee I make is great so it can't be all that bad, right?
Oliver L (quality: 6.0) 10.13.2008 Rating: 7.8

Bottom Line: Buy one , use it. Buy a second for decaf(ok I know)
Peter McDermott (quality: 8.0) 05.18.2004 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: If you life in the UK and can't afford a Gaggia MDF (the next grinder up), this is your only option for espresso.

Bottom Line: A good grinder that does it's chores without problems
Peter Russell (quality: 7.3) 12.11.2004 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: half the price of the rancilio rocky, and probably 65% as good as one.  that makes it a value.  just be ready to work with it.
Reed Nelson (quality: 2.2) 11.08.2004 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Look... if you are just getting started in the home Barista routine, buy Barista products. Sure, there are better for much more $$$, but walk B4 you run!
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.
Richard Porter (quality: 5.0) 05.30.2003 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: There is no other grinder to compete at this price level
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.
Rob McHattie (quality: 6.5) 12.30.2003 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: A quiet, reasonably priced machine that seems capable.
