Bottom Line: There is no other grinder to compete at this price level
Bongo BCBeanBoy (quality: 6.0) 12.27.2002 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Yes it's pricey, but not as much as others and works burrfectly - a burrfect burrchase.
Eward Sonneveld (quality: 5.4) 07.09.2002 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Excellent value for money (GBP 60 / USD 90). Tweaking requires patience and confidence, but after that it is superb.

Bottom Line: Perfect introduction to Burr grinders.
John Eubanks (quality: 8.6) 04.27.2002 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: I am pleased overall with the Barista, but now my appetite is whetted for a better grinder like the Rocky or Mazzer!
George Wachsmuth (quality: 7.5) 03.22.2002 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Great if you don't need it for espresso. Good second grinder.
Todd Warnke (quality: 7.8) 03.16.2002 Rating: 9.2

Tom Murray (quality: 7.0) 02.22.2002 Rating: 7.6

Dave Rogers (quality: 7.3) 12.30.2001 Rating: 7.2
