Detailed Commentary

We use this machine at work 5 days per week, probably 6 to 8 times per day, 2x each session (required to make enough grinds).  This has gone on for nearly 3 years and this grinder keeps going, and going, and going ...  It has outlived two coffee machines.  I am really impressed with this durability.

I loved this one so much I bought my own for home use and it works great with my Technivorm drip.  Together they make awesome coffee.

My only two complaints is the tendency for static build-up and the occasional stickiness with really oily beans. I spoke to some folks at Peet's and these problems do not sound unique to the Capresso so I guess I can't fault the machine.  Because of the stickiness the amount you get for a timed grind varies so I rely on weight.  It would be cool if there were a built in scale and you could dial in an amount!

Buying Experience

Fine.
