Positive Product Points

Looks!...........WOW this thing is gorgeous.  It is also very solid and well made.  Simple as sin to use.

Negative Product Points

Small build-up of grinds in chute.  Espresso-only grinder due to stepless design.

Detailed Commentary

Lovely to say the least.  Very easy set-up and dial-in for my Gaggia Classic.  Have used it for a week now and stays dialed-in.  I use only Terroir beans from George Howell.....can't say enough about the quality of his coffee.  This grinder has a very small foot print but is solid as can be.  I ground it fine enough to choke the Classic and then increased the coarseness out until I acheived 2-ounces in 25 seconds of 1/2 pure crema atop wonderfull tasting coffee.  The manual is nothing special, in fact I didn't even read it.  I put the hopper on and than cranked it down to a finer coarsness  (The default is set to medium grind out of the box).  I understand that the black unit is nice looking as well but the all alluminum unit is a beauty to behold.  A hand made masterpiece of design.  A must look for a grinder in this price range.

Buying Experience

1st line has top-notch service with order tracking.  I have never had a problem with out-of-stock items or damaged goods......A+ rating from me all the way around!
