Bottom Line: With a bit of tweaking, the grinder can give a very fine grind, for excellent shot results; as well as being able to do drip and french press.
Mike Carroccio 12.21.2006 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Very good product for the price, especially when on sale!
Bernard Murphy 09.30.2007 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Does the job!
Nicholas Trahan 10.25.2007 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: I wish I would have gotten something with more features and a finer grind, but the coffee I make is great so it can't be all that bad, right?

Bottom Line: Works for drip grind, but the Barista won't meet the needs of most baristas.
James Lee 12.08.2008 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Great value and good results  but don't buy if you want espresso with crema
Daniel Hughes 12.12.2008 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Decent grinder for the money, but if you're in the UK, go with the Dualit version.
Michael Jevicky 02.10.2009 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Good for this level of grinder. Definitely worth the money.
James Campbell 02.11.2009 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Good for everything but espresso
Mark Kunitomi 02.13.2010 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: Cheap and easy way to start making espresso at home. Unsatisfactory for improving your espresso to 'Excellence'.

Bottom Line: grind is ok
Christophe Tyle 10.03.2010 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: For seven bucks, a very decent machine easily worth twice the price ;-)

Mike Wisniewski (quality: 1.0) 03.02.2007 Rating: 4.4

Jeff Parduhn (quality: 2.0) 07.28.2001 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: The Barista is a great grinder and looks good too. Buy it before you buy the Solis.
Bob (quality: 2.0) 02.04.2001 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Good value for home use in a compact size.
Reed Nelson (quality: 2.2) 11.08.2004 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Look... if you are just getting started in the home Barista routine, buy Barista products. Sure, there are better for much more $$$, but walk B4 you run!

Paul (quality: 2.3) 11.12.2000 Rating: 8.4
