Positive Product Points

High quality grind for a low price. Studily built and fairly easy to use. Makes very nice grounds.

Negative Product Points

Takes a bit of effort, but not nearly as much as some claim. No "dosing" system.

Detailed Commentary

I needed to step up in grinder quality, but couldn't afford to drop a couple hundred for a good electric burr grinder, so I went with a hand grinder. I haven't had it long, but so far I've been pleased with it.

First of all, the "difficulty" of grinding the coffee is overstated, IMHO. Only takes a minute or so and really doesn't need much effort. Perhaps it might be difficult for someone with very small hands; I wouldn't know.

I've found that it makes wonderful grounds for both my press pot and my mocha pot. Haven't tried it out with an espresso maker, but I will do so soon.

Buying Experience

Bought from Texas Coffee Traders, a retail shop in Austin, Texas. Fun store with extremely knowledgable people there (although I already knew what I wanted).
