Consistent, adjustable, repeatable set points. Change from ristretto to French press and back in a snap. Solid, hefty construction. Looks the part. Quiet.
Negative Product Points
Chute does not fully clear. Doser does not quite sweep clear. Annoying finger guard (removeable though). Some static issues with certain coffees.
The grind is very even and the change in taste from the coffee was dramatic when switching over from a good hand mill. Wonderfully repeatable if changing grind and back. Available in tall and short hopper (I have short). Doser can sweep reasonably clear if set as low as possible. More coffee is trapped in the chute so I use a brush to clear it - that requires that the annoying finger guard has been removed of course. The rivnut on the finger guard was not fully secure - the only build issue I can find, but it should have been spotted at QC. Rock solid weight allows easy frapping the portafilter sideways on the equally solid fork. Doser action slow and heavy but helps to break up the coffee, but it is not a rapid action as it requires to move all the way through its stroke to reset. Feels like it will last forever though. Shoots slightly left of course. Some coffees create a static charge and the coffee bounces off the basket to the sides, but mostly low static is experienced. Have never bothered using the onboard tamper as it blocks a view of the basket too easily.
Quick and courteous from Paul at Coffeehit.co.uk and a good price too.
