Detailed Commentary

A rather attractive unit bought at a local Starbucks.  $125 is a bit much to pay...wait for a sale.  Came out of the box ready to grind and worked quite well.  Its an inexpensive unit as far as burr grinders go so of course there are several inconvienences - like clean up is messy - grind drawer is not a positieve connection - static build up will result in flying coffee when you dump - and lastly - UNIT OVERHEATES AFTER TEN MINUTES OR SO OF GRINDING AND WILL DIE.  UNIT IS NOT RATED FOR CONTINUOUS USE!!!!  My order for a Rancillo Rocky has been placed.
