Bottom Line: You can buy but be carefull with the plastic stuff of the doser!
Positive Product Points

Very Quiet (I have a fullautomatic Krups with a conical burr that is more noisy), quick, Doser system is fun like a barrista!
A good weight that shows a big use of metal.

Negative Product Points

You can't empty the doser, They is always coffee ground into.
You can't select the quantity of coffee. I think that 1g or 2g more coffee will be better!
The doser seems to be fragile!

Detailed Commentary

In french :

C'est un bon produit, la base est entièrement métallique et l'utilisation du plastique est réduit au maximum (pour les parties transparentes et le doseur). 7Kg!

Le moulin en lui même est relativement silencieux et rapide (max 70dB). Le café moulu sort doucement du broyeur pour tomber dans le doseur. Il peut rester deux grammes dans le couloir car celui-ci est horizontal.
A mon goût, la partie doseur est correct mais sans plus. Les lamelles tournantes ont du mal à pousser les derniers grains qui préfèrent se coller aux parois. Le recours à la brosse à dents est obligatoire pour vider intégralement le moulin.

Un accessoire permet de placer correctement le porte filtre en dessous du distributeur de café. C'est une pièce en plastique qui clairement est très fragile, pas de geste busque sous peine de la casser. Pourquoi ne pas mettre une pièce métallique comme sur les moulins professionnels?

En tout cas, aucun problème pour la finesse de la mouture, on peut moudre assez fin pour que l'eau ne puisse pas passer à travers !!!

Buying Experience

Je l'ai trouvé pour 220 EUR TTC chez un torréfacteur de Reims. C'est difficile de trouver un tel prix vue que c'est le prix HT de vente conseillé par Rancilio!
