wish the hopper had a valve to contain beans when lifted from machine.

Detailed Commentary

I has a horrible burr grinder that blew grinds everywhere and at its finest setting, still was not espresso grind fineness.  Researched and considered many grinders, but, since I was doing presspot, thought this would be the best choice for the ease of changing from espresso grind to course presspot.  Grinder does great!  I have the model with the metal portafilter (886) and it holds the portafilter firmly in place, yet is easily removed.  The fork was a bit long for my Gaggia PF, so I contacted Baratza.  Turns out they have two forks and mine was the longer one.  They shipped out the shorter one at no charge and it works well!

Buying Experience

Bodka Coffee has great beans and was willing to work with me on the price. after I found a lower price at another seller.  David is very accomodating and trustworthy.
