Positive Product Points

This unit was spot on for espresso coffees and worked well at the
french-press end of the spectrum.

Negative Product Points

The timer died after a few hours of use. Fortunately, the Braun KMM30
has the identical timer assembly.

Detailed Commentary

The Mulino looked good and made sense at the time. It has
fairly solid construction for the price and produced a consistent
grind time after time. The anti-static option seemed to work
OK in my moderately humid environment. It was not the most
ideal design for loading up an espresso portafilter. In this
way, the Solis Maestro was a big improvement. Conical Burrs
and gear reduction go a long way to making a precise grinding
experience time after time. Perhaps this unit is better suited
to drip brewer use, keeping in mind the overall design.

Buying Experience

It was a promo item for web-based review.
