Bottom Line: Great manual burr grinder and amazing value.
Positive Product Points

Durable and impact resistant materials make this a great travel grinder.

Very good grind control for multiple devices (I've not tried it with an espresso machine).

Incredibly good value for money.

Negative Product Points

My only dislike about this product is the handle. I wish there was a way to attach it, lock it on, grind, and then unlock/remove it.

Detailed Commentary

I absolutely love this grinder so far. It gives you great quality grinds that, in my experience, have been consistently solid. It's made of materials that are very well suited for travel so you can easily take it with you anywhere. Many people are wary of manual grinders as they think it will be a lot of time/effort to grind beans but I haven't found that to be the case at all. It doesn't take more than a few minutes to grind enough for two areopresses and it's remarkably easy.

My only complaint is with the handle. It easily slides on/off as needed but this also means that it doesn't necessarily feel as solid as I'd like. I wish there was some sort of locking mechanism on it but it is really only a small criticism of a fantastic product, especially for the price.

If you're a coffee geek on a budget or just starting out, then this is a great first choice for you. If you've got loads of cash and can't be bothered to put in a few minutes of grinding, then consider an electric burr grinder.

As for me, I'm very happy to stick with my new travel companion!

Buying Experience

Easy buying experience through amazon.
