Uniquely well-suited for low volume home use by those who want the best.
Positive Product Points
Comments only concern the Granmacinino model--the higher end version. There is another version, the Professional, which is not in the same league as the Granmacinino.
A high quality small grinder WITHOUT a doser; great aesthetics (all stainless). May be the ideal home grinder for espresso cognoscenti.
Negative Product Points
For some reason, even though this grinder has high quality materials, Isomac used the cheapest bevel-head screws in assembling it. The machine I received wasn‘t assembled properly. I ended up changing a number of the screws to flat head stainless.
For anyone who has only one or two cups of espresso a day, a doser on a grinder is an annoyance at worse, and superfluous at best. And yet there are few high quality grinders without dosers. Isomac is one of the few.
A few other plusses. This machine is all stainless steel. It ought to last indefinitely, and it looks great with Livias, Sylvias, Pavonis and other high end stainless or chrome espresso machines. The only plastic is the bean holder.
Conical burr design. Very high quality coffee grinds.
The only place that sells the thing in the U.S., as far as I know, is Max Orsini in Oregon. He sells them for $240. In Europe they sell for the equivalent of about $180.
