Can't grind espresso.

Detailed Commentary

I bought this grinder several years ago.  My primary interest was espresso, but I also needed to use it for a french press.  This was replacing my ?Krupps? burr grinder.

First the good news, my pots of french press were a _lot_ better.  The grind was so much more consistent.  And with the large burrs, I didn't have to worry about burning the beans.

Now the bad news:

- you can't dial it down for espresso.  Can't even get close.  Bunn even replaced the burrs for free.  
- the chute to the burrs should probably be steeper, as the last 1/4 of coffee will get "stuck", and you have to shake the grinder to get them down
- the grind adjuster is in the hopper with the beans.

Buying Experience

no issues
