Bottom Line: If you dont mind the effort of yankin n crankin and can live without a doser, this grinder provides excellent burrs for the buck
Positive Product Points

Beautiful, well made, quiet; negligible static buildup compared to my electric burr grinder; burrs have yet to require "unclogging" after over a year of daily use

Negative Product Points

Very coarse grind not quite as consistent as Id like. No grind "settings" per se.

Grinding a "harder" coffee like Full City Roast Ethiopian Yirgacheffe can require substantial physical exertion**

**This *can* be a positive feature if you were saving up for a Bowflex

Detailed Commentary

I bought this for approx $60 and its more than worth it. I wish Id bought it before wasting money on a couple cheapie plastic electric toys that I wound up not using. Ive been using it for press pot coffee (and occasional drip) just about every day for over a year and the physical effort required really is a minor quibble for me. It does everything I want from a grinder and does it well. However, I can see this grinder posing some real problems for people with physical infirmities or lower levels of upper body strength.
