This grinder is well-built, but it just doesn't produce a consistent enough grind for any brew method.
Positive Product Points
The machine seems fairly well-made, and looks nice
Negative Product Points
Grind consistency is very bad Grinder makes awful noise
The grind consistency is very bad. The grinder produces tons of dust at all grind settings, which causes any brew method to produce overly bitter coffee. The resulting flavor is burned, like charcoal. This machine uses flat burrs that are not sharpened -- they crush the beans instead of chopping and cutting them. This was the first coffee grinder that I ever bought, and I only chose it because it was on sale and I generally trust the Cuisinart brand. It seems durable enough, but when I started to get into espresso, I realized the grind quality was just not that great. I make drip coffee about %80 of the time, but also make espresso and French press.
I recently replaced the grinder with a Saeco Titan (aka Starbucks Barista), and I was very surprised at how much better the resulting coffee tastes. Even my drip coffee is way less "burned" and bitter than the stuff from the Cuisinart. The color of drip coffee is also noticeably lighter for similar grind settings and amounts. Presumably this is because the dust from the Cuisinart would leech too much into the brew water.
I bought the grinder at a local Bed Bath and Beyond.
