Detailed Commentary

We are actually on our second Bodum Antigua. Our first was bought from Cooking.com about 4 years ago. We liked it right away. The price was quite right for a burr grinder, the hopper is good-sized and can be easily removed for cleaning. Our first machine worked quite well, delivering a good consistend grind for our drip machine (about all we use it for....), until we got a bag of beans with a bolt in it. Yes, that's right, Virginia,  the top of a nice steel 7/16" bolt that had probably sheared off in the interior of some processing or roasting machinery.) Needless to say, the bolt head and the burrs in the grinder didn't get along particularly well, although surprisingly, the grind wasn't affected all that much by the burrs being somewhat chewed up. I might also mention that the vendor of the coffee beans promptly compensated us for this- the Papanicholas Coffee Co. of Batavia, IL,  our boutique of choice since Starbucks stopped home delivery.
When we finally decided we wanted a new grinder, we unhesitatingly got a new Antigua, this one with points from our Papanicholas coffee bags.....but we'd have got a new Antigua in any case.

Buying Experience

Fine on-line purchase, prompt delivery.
