Hi,
I'm trying to decide which of the two is best for my use.
I'm using a VBM domobar junior.
I'm drinking only espresso, about twice a day, about two cups each time.

The most important features in the following order:
  1.   The  taste in the cup
  2. Quit operation (as much has possible)
  3. Clean operation .

I find it hard to get info about bb005.
Thanks,
Natan

Hi there,
I have this grinder and I also found it very hard to get any information on it pre-purchase.

This is the first decent grinder I have owned so I don't have much to compare to, I use a mazzer at work but that is a doser that has to grind a lot of coffee everyday so it's not an easy comparison IMO. I have the non-timer version and I add a measured dose of beans to the hopper per cup.

Pros:
I find that it's reasonably quiet - much quieter than the mazzer at work and a good deal less than a rocky
Very consistent grind with no clumping to speak of.
infinite grind adjustment.
Clean operation; the chute delivers the grinds very precisely. Little to no spillage with my caravel's very small portafilter
Quick and easy to use.
Quick and easy to clean.
Solid. Feels like it will last well.
Taste in the cup is excellent.

Cons:
No markings for grind setting - but these could easy be added to the neck of the grinder.
A bit ugly.
Tends to retain 1-2 grams of ground beans. (which can mean some grinds will fall out when the unit is bumped leaving a small mess)
It can popcorn the beans (make them jump out of the burr chute) a bit. I tend to pulse the motor a bit to get the last few beans down.

I got this grinder at a bargain price and am more than happy.
