never lasted more than a couple of weeks

Detailed Commentary

With the first one, I made 1 bodum pot and 1 espresso before the burrs stopped working even if you could hear the motor running.

The second one lasted 2 weeks before the motor stopped working. We are 2 coffee drinkers  so about 30 double shots.

Both times I was using coffee they had given me.

The last one I received was posted for sale here as soon as I received it.

To be honest I should say each time I sent it back they return a new one. I had to put a bit of pressure on the store but they ended up sending a new one.

Buying Experience

I won't be buying from them again.
