Bottom Line: Although not mechanically ideal, can produce superior drip coffee.
Positive Product Points

Can make a very clean and consistent grind.  Makes a difference with better drip brewers.  Grind gradations a plus for an exacting fineness.

Negative Product Points

Hopper clogs occasionally.  Not configured to grind for drip machines.  Doser leaves grounds behind when used to grind a set amount of beans.  Needs a separate container to load ground coffee into a drip basket.

Detailed Commentary

If one uses a Techni Vorm drip maker, the quality of the grind makes a difference.  In spite of the weaknesses, the unit provides a consistent grind which makes brewing a pot-o-gold both easy and repeatable.  Coffee is less acidic than with other grinders, including manual conical burr units.
