Smooth, quick and produces a fine grind. No need to spend 200 plus for a grinder!
Negative Product Points
It does have some static build up, but the spray is slight.
It was easy to dial in a good dose on my first try. Some have said the grind was not fine enough, but I disagree. I own a Solis Crema machine and the Barista produced a very nice grind for excellent espresso. This is my third grinder and by far the best I've tried. The hopper holds plenty of beans for a crowd. The built in timer with increments of 7 seconds each was easy to use. Once you find your perfect dose, it will produce it without fail. Starbuck's offers a 2 year limited warranty on the Barista.
I paid retail for the Barista, but was in a hurry. You can find it in the range of 90-100.
