Detailed Commentary

price 48.00 at pacific rim trading company.
i bought a krups gusto and in line with a low cost set up for espresso was looking for the lowest cost grinder for espresso. the solis 166 was considered at 125.00 but then i saw the reviews on this site stating that the zassenhaus mills make espresso grind so i went with this purchase. when i got the grinder it took a few tries to get the proper setting (the burrs have to touch when you grind). also the adjustment collar moves the burr settings so i put a drop of red fingernail polish on the adjustment collar so i can see the position move and i just reset it as i am grinding. you can also put your finger  on the collar as you grind to hold it in place. i got the "knee" model and i suggest this as it is the most comfortable way to hold the grinder as you grind. it takes about 35 seconds to grind up for a double shot of espresso, not too bad. i would not reccommend the mill for say a pot of coffee of say 4 cups or more. it‘s just too much grinding but i suppose some people wouldn‘t mind. the mill is made very well and looks like it can last many years. the eveness of grind for espresso is very impressive. i get plenty of crema and the ideal 25 second espresso shots and i don‘t even have the mill set at the finest setting so i would say this mill will give espresso cut grounds for any espresso machine out there.
