Bottom Line: You won't regret buying this machine.
Positive Product Points

Fits under the counter. Doesn't toss coffee to the left as some dosers do. No static cling / explosion. Fast, even grind. Micro adjustable. Doesn't burn the coffee beans with its low speed 300 watt motor.

Negative Product Points

I think it's a bit noisy (but it's so fast that before your wife can say, "what's that?", your done). Some say it's industrial looking. (I say beautiful).

Detailed Commentary

Others have said pretty much everything. I would add my second (er third) to their comments. I have a few things to add.

I cut off the finger guard inside the doser so that I could sweep out the two or so grams of coffee in the chute . I also got rid of that usless tamper.

The doser sweeps very clean and the coffee drops straight down and not to the left as with some other machines. This is a big advantage because otherwise you would have to devise a way to get the stale coffee out out of the doser.

I also like the fact that the cord comes out the bottom and not out the side as it does on some other machines.

Finally, I think that the on/off switch is ideal in both location and function. Some machines have timers which would be a bother in my application.

Buying Experience

Chris' Coffee is Da Bomb! My grandson says that is high praise, indeed. You can't do better.
