Bottom Line: Not fine enough for expresso quality
Positive Product Points

Elegant small design in black. Able to dial fine to coarse. Stores good quantity of whole beans on its container. Has timer and stop botton to grind between 4 and 12 cups. Ground coffee receptacle has lid.

Negative Product Points

Not fine enough to use with my La Pavoni expresso machine. Static builds making a mess of grounds everytime coffee is dispensed.

Detailed Commentary

Alike the other reviewers, the picture does not correspond to the design I got. I received the grinder as a gift. Unfortunatelly I can't use if to my expresso machine as it does not grind fine enough. The expresso shot just rushes out of La Pavoni. No cream, mostly bitter coffee water. I failed to try to find a fix. I grounded coffee at the lowest finest setting and then at the coarsest setting, and back to the finest. I noticed a slight improvement in finer grounds - as the coffee did not rush out of the expresso machine as fast as before - but not sufficient to allow any expresso drink.

Buying Experience

Not applicable, it was a gift
