Detailed Commentary

I would recommend this product for some and not others. If you only consume a small amount of coffee at a time, like for you and another person, large amounts are tiresome. If you like fine grinds often, like espresso or Turkish coffee, they take a while to grind. You have to be willing to grind coffee, which for me doing 50g of coffee is like 10 min for vacuum pot. The most annoying part is the grind setting moves a lot. I have to hold it or adjust every like 50 turns. I would say in 10g it moves an 1/8 a revolution. So you mus adjust it often and in between grinding. So in the end if you use a small amount of like drip coffee or french press, not super consistant, but most aren't, consume in small amounts like a few cups at a time, and are willing to grind for over 5 min every time you make coffee, often more, then go buy it
