good conical grinder (only after modifying it) for espresso . easy to operate , grind is very consistent. quiet and the added timer function is a nice plus.
Negative Product Points
without modifying it is useless for espresso, a bit of a hassle to get the coffee from the container to the pf.
for some reason breville made a good grinder but blocked its potential to be great by limiting its grinding mode (what they call espresso is so far from it & even the Turkish setting is too coarse).
so you have to modify it for a grind fit for espresso! no matter what you read it cannot produce a fine enough grind for a 25 sec shot with good crema! but it is not too difficult to fix. read this: Click Here (coffeesnobs.com.au) the only thing i would to differently is after you've opened the grinder and you located the small plastic that holds the grinding set from keep turning just use a hot flat screwdriver to melt the small plastic. so you dont need a saw or anything . melt it and make it smooth and then it will provide the best grind you can get! other than that i must say i dont like that the grind coffee goes to a container and not straight to the pf but its not a big deal.
