Best grinder on the market, don't settle for less.
Positive Product Points
This is a beautiful Machine, well designed and rugged. Has a steppless grind adjustment which is easy to use and provides for a perfect grind.
Negative Product Points
Negative, negative... Hmmm, can't really think of any bad points about this machine. Perhaps the price, but that isn't outrageous. It is a little big for a home grinder.
I had a Faema Due 2 group and used the Faema grinder that came with it for long time. It was frustration that drove me to the Mazzer, I was trying to perfect my technique via schomers book, but I just could not get the results I wanted. Enter the Mazzer, it made a tremendous difference. Being able to adjust the grind to any degree enabled me to get the shots I was looking for, while using the correct tamp. I did take off the tamper built on the front of the machine- not difficult, just 2 screws I think.
I actually bought this machine thru a Rio dealer, it has a Rio emblem on it but the serial number tag is genuine Mazzer and so is the owners manual, but I got a good deal on it.
