Bottom Line: Retro product.  Does a very good job for what it is designed for.  Don't expect to hit a switch and have your coffee ready to go.
Positive Product Points

Extremely attractive design.  Looks attractive on kitchen counter.  Grinds are consistent from powder to coarse.  Easy to clean.  No static powder.

Negative Product Points

Cannot "dial up" a grind.  No way to set a specific point for a repeatable grind.  I use mine for Espresso grind and do not move the mill wheel.  If you have carpal tunnel, problems with wrist or hands, this mill is not for you.  Be prepared to spend time manually producing your grind.

Detailed Commentary

Be sure your hand and wrists are in good shape or this Mill will not be for you.  If you are looking for resettable grind settings, forget it.  I use it primarily for Espresso, so I don't change the setting.  It will grind from powder to coarse.  The mouth of the hopper could be larger as beans can slop out on the counter.  The Cone of the Mill is beautiful - easy to have on the kitchen counter as a decoration.  My last burr grinder left alot of static powder and wasn't a consistent grind.  Just the opposite with this Mill.  Every particle is the same size and makes for a good cup of Espresso.

Buying Experience

Camano was easy to deal with.

Three Month Followup

I bought a motorized grinder - finding the Camano Mill was more for camping or on the road.  It is much easier to use theBaratza Maestro with its multiple settings.
