A good starting grinder when budget is an issue and a great travel companion, but overrated as a 'grinder' alone. Mazzer mini is 'five steps' up.
Positive Product Points
Repeatable, consistent, well built.
Negative Product Points
Uniformity of grind is poor compared to prosumer grinder. Slow!
Bought based on the reviews here as a starter grinder. Has been very handy and consistent. Now use as a travel grinder. Can only grind about 21g at a time. Takes about 1.5 mins per 21g. Grind setting will travel, so ou need to mark setpoint and check it has not drifted as you go. Capable of acheiving every grind from FP to Turkish - BUT it is not uniform. If i compare the same coffee grinds in the sink made from a shot that will 'pull' the same in a mchine as the grind from my Mazzer mini it is far more heterogenoeus. Lumps, shards and fines are intermingled whereas the Mazzer is very uniform. With the same coffee in the same machine, Mazzer tastes better.
Manufactum were phemonemal. I paid after receipt of goods by cheque......
