Purchased this grinder to go along with my La Pavoni Professional Espresso Machine as well as my drip brewer (had been eying the Rocky, but thought that this one sounded on a par and would ‘go‘ with my Pavoni Professional). My first issue with the grinder was the noise level. Fairly loud. The grinder comes with a press lever to let you grind directly into an espresso filter, unfortunately this feature is hindered by the high static charge that the grinds come out of the grinder with. In numerous tests I was at best only able to get 90% of the grounds to fall INTO the espresso filter, the rest scattered across the counter.
The grind adjustment was somewhat difficult on this machine (especially since I was using it for the dual purpose of espresso/filter grinds). At Espresso grind the exit hole of the grinder often clogged.
After 6 months the grinder became appreciably louder. A thorough cleaning, diassembly/reassembly failed to reveal the source of the noise.
At this point I gave up and sent off for a Rocky. Been happy ever since...(especially with how danged quiet the Rocky is).
