Detailed Commentary

I received this necessity a week after my new Quickmill Vetrano arrived. I loved the new machine but was not pulling great shots using the borrowed kitchenaid grinder. It arrived to wows from a friend and and an odd look from my wife."That will fit under the counter?" she asked.
The answer is maybe...I have a space for my espresso machine that has 24" clearance but it would be tight under a normal cabinet with a counter light attached. Measure carefully.

I used a pound of coffee getting the grind close and then set the dossing amounts. The machine uses time to determine the dossage and a finer grind nets less coffee per dose. It takes a little trial and error but is worth the time. The first shot I pulled was the best espresso I have had in a long time, including my trip to Tuscany last month(the reason I turned into a coffee nut/bean).
The shot was perfect..the crema felt a 1/2 inch deep and coated my mouth...it made all the time I spent researching-procrastinating-obsessing
worth it. I am truly happy with this purchase and I want to thank Mary at Chrisscoffee for leading me down the correct path.

Buying Experience

Chrisscoffee- Great experience. Helped me pick out the propper equipment for my budget/needs/wants. No pressure just information and guidance. Equipment was shipped the day I ordred and arrived in perfect condition.

Three Month Followup

Great machine. The direct grind into the portafilter can be messy. Cut a yogurt cup in half , remove bottom and insert in portafilter before grinding.
This keeps coffee in portafilter and lets you stir the grounds to break up any lumps.
