Detailed Commentary

the m4 was an upgrade after owning a capresso infinity.  the upgrade made a huge improvement in shot quality.

the doser mechanism allows clumpless distribution into the portafilter.   after removing the finger guard it is easy to brush out the chute into the doser for 99% usable grounds.  i like the doser action and efficiency way better than mazzer.

the m4 is built like a tank and looks great.

for a quality grinder the price is pretty reasonable.

every morning it is a pleasure to use the m4.

after five years of great service, i bought a macap mxt.  i hope that i like it as well as the m4.

Buying Experience

people at chris coffee spent time to educate me on grinder choices.  they made it easy for me to decide to  buy this grinder. it was a pleasure to do business with them.

Three Month Followup

still working fine.  
easy to use.  
no issues.  
very satisfied.

One Year Followup

i am enjoying the grinder and espresso very much.
