Positive Product Points

Great coffee grinder for consistent results for espresso. Works great for other types of coffee also!

Negative Product Points

I don't like the big plastic doser on the front.

Detailed Commentary

I'm not going to go into alot of detail because I would agree with all the other posts on this site. I use mine daily to grind my beans to make espresso, vacuum pot coffee, french press or drip coffee. I keep the bean hopper empty and add just the amount I'm going to need. I adjust the grind and everything turns out consistently well. This grinder might be overkill for drip or french press but if you are serious about making a great cup of espresso you need a high quality grinder like this one. This grinder never fails to grind the beans very evenly and very consistently each and every time.

Did I mention that it's quiet also. I used to own a Bodum Antigua and it would wake up the neighbors it was so loud. Not Rocky, it just emits a nice quiet hum. Quality.

The only negative about this grinder, and most of the other posts express the same opinion, is about the plastic doser. I wish there was just a chute that would dispense directly into a small container. I took the dosing forks off because with this it made it almost impossible to dispense other grinds of coffee. Now I just have a small saucer into which I "dose" my just ground coffee.

Buying Experience

1st Line was awesome. Great advice and it arrived quickly and safely.
