Quiet Nice looking No dust Works great for my espresso and drip brewing
Negative Product Points
The Starbucks version didn't work for my espresso machine, so I got the refurb Solis, and it works great.
I'm really happy with this grinder. I'm not having a static problem. I suppose it's loud compared to the Rocky, but it's a dream compared to the Braun. I can use it in the morning without waking up everyone in the house, and that was my litmus test.
And I'm getting fine shots. My espresso machine is really nothing special - a five year old Krups thermoblock machine. But I'm giving it fresh coffee ground with this grinder, and I'm getting some nice shots - plenty of richly colored crema, not sour, and not bitter. This is the best espresso I've ever had, but, hey, we're not known for great espresso here in Virginia.
I guess the moral of the story is, if you're considering upgrading your espresso machine, you should first buy a decent grinder and get some good coffee. Try to take your old machine to it's limit. You might be surprised.
I recommend baratza.com - They were incredibly helpful. I got a better deal, and their service was above and beyond the call of duty.
