A very competent stepless adjustment low rpm grinder. Grinds very evenly.
Positive Product Points
very competent grinder, grinds evenly. Stepless adjustment allows for finetuning. 800 rpm.
Negative Product Points
Static electricity. The stop screws had to be removed before the grinder could grind fine enough for espresso.
My previous grinder was a Gaggia MM, nedless to say this grinder plays in a totally different league. I appreciate the stepless adjustment, it makes it possible to finetune the grind very accurately even though it is easy to get lost since there is no scale or markings on where you are. I solved this by making my own scale that works pretty fine. When I first bought the grinder, I couldnt grind fine enough for espresso. I returned to the shop and after some discussions with the manufacturer we solved the problems by removing the stop scews that prevented the grinder from fine grinding. I think this is a minor flaw since it is rather easy to fix, but I think you could expect a grinder of this magnitude to work right away. The grinder grinds directly into your portafilter. The static electricity makes the grinding a bit messy but I guess this is true for all grindes without a doser, it doesnt bother me that much. Compared with the Gaggia MM this grinder is like beautifull music to listen to. The low spinrate of the burrs (800rpm) is a part of that I guess, it is also good since it reduces the heating of the coffe too much during the grind. To wrap it all up, I am very satisfied with this grinder, I am now going through all the different blends of espresso I have tested before and re-evaluate them since there are a whole ensamble of new aromas coming through with this grinder.
Positive, I got the help I needed, can recomend anyone to use Kaffemaskinen. I am happy I bought the grinder in a store where I could get quick help to solve my problems.

No change, I am very happy with this grinder. I love the stepless adjustment.
One Year Followup
I am still very satisfied with this grinder. Works very well indeed. The only problem is that there is no scale for the grinding, but it is easy to make one on your own. The static electricity is not a problem anymore, seems to be strongly connected to the coffee you use.
