Detailed Commentary

I won't say much here as much has been said in other reveiws and it's only a knockbox, so I cant' say much.

I've read that it's small and that with commercial (58mm) portafilters you may have a 'messy' issue.  Well I've knocked pucks into here about 25 times and never had one issue.  I have a commercial PF and I find it easy to knock out the pucks without risk of making a mess.  If you've read that someone finds it easy to miss, make a mess, I wouldn't pay attention.  Trust me, it is tight, but if you are paying attention, you won't make a mess.

It's also not very loud...for sure not the loudest thing in the whole espresso process.

Buying Experience

Store is in Toronto, west of Spadina, on Richmond I think.
