Bottom Line: Great grind quality, very consistent, usable espresso grind range, price is excellent
Positive Product Points

Great grind quality, very consistent, usable espresso grind range, price is excellent

Negative Product Points

doser is not consistent, but is useable. no rubber feet (slides on smooth surface) however this is easily solved with a rubber mat.

getting grounds without the doser (for thati brewing or press) seems like it might present a problem.

Detailed Commentary

I grind for espresso in a gaggia classic. It seems to have a very useable range for espresso grinding. the doser is interesting and I havent been able to have it give me two doses in the same ammount yet, the pull sticks for it as well, though it doesnt really bother me since it is amazing in every other way. Slow grind produces very little noise relative to other grinders i've used. the "manual" (more like a poster with some instruction) is vague and doesnt help much other than informing me that the lower the number selected, the finer the grind.

Buying Experience

Peet's is great, what else can I say

Three Month Followup

continues to have great grind consistency, no problems whatsoever.

One Year Followup

continues to have great grind consistency, no problems whatsoever.
