Bottom Line: A fantastic way to start your espresso adventure for a reasonable price
Wes Howard-brook (quality: 8.7) 07.02.2009 Rating: 9.6
Bottom Line: All the grinder most folks will ever need.
Ivan Spencer (quality: 7.7) 05.23.2009 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: For 179, I'd say its a deal. Plan on returning unit for lower burr replacement someday.  Grind quality is pretty consistent.
Michael Ventura (quality: 6.8) 03.30.2009 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: With a little "fine tuning" per Barratza instruction - this machine will provide a very fine expresso grind.  Also great for drip and French press.
Alan Webster (quality: 6.7) 03.01.2009 Rating: 9.6
Bottom Line: Takes the grind out of buying a grinder
Don Rutherford (quality: 8.0) 02.07.2009 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: I CANNOT SPEAK TO ESPRESSO, BUT FOR MY MOKA-DRIP-PRESS NEEDS, THIS MACHINE EXCELS!

Bottom Line: It works, no quirks.
Patrick King (quality: 6.5) 11.18.2008 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: For home once adjusted, it is primo.
J M (quality: 6.0) 10.27.2008 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Work to unlock the potential, be patient, the price is right for entry level
Peter Forlano (quality: 4.6) 09.13.2008 Rating: 3.8
Bottom Line: This machine and it's company need to do a lot more wood shedding  to live up to the name.
Mattias M (quality: 7.3) 05.14.2008 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: Don't buy this grinder for a Silvia . . . I regretted not paying $100 more for a Rocky.
Aubrei Merrill (quality: 9.0) 05.13.2008 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Your friendly neighborhood French Press grinder solution.
Jesse Nice (quality: 8.3) 04.26.2008 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Good grinder with a wide range and little retention, but not fine enough control for consistent espresso.
Tony Szpara (quality: 1.1) 04.01.2008 Rating: 5.0
Bottom Line: Find something more durable.
Howard Pierson (quality: 7.0) 03.08.2008 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: This is a great grinder for its niche, one can get better, but you will have to pay more, and be seriously addicted to Barista quality espresso.
Ken L. (quality: 5.7) 02.05.2008 Rating: 8.4
