Bottom Line: great grinder, but look up the Starbucks Barista Grinder Hack on Google, to get this grinder to grind fine enough for espresso machines
Positive Product Points

good price, well made machine. Be sure to do the Starbucks Barista Grinder hack (look up on Google) if you want it to grind fine enough for great espresso

Negative Product Points

grinder hack is needed  to get the grind fine enough

Detailed Commentary

great grinder, but look up the Starbucks Barista Grinder Hack on Google, to get this grinder to grind fine enough for espresso machines
( I set it two holes counter clockwise from the factory setting)
the grinder is small, light, but can grind like much more expensive grinders with this hack.
I have owned this grinder for years with no problems.  You do need a measuring scooper. the lack of a doser does not bother me
the grinder tucks away under a counter with no problems and is probably the smallest, lightest grinder you can get.  It does not have a slower grinding speed, but that does not seem to detract from the quality of the coffee you get

Buying Experience

great
