Detailed Commentary

I learned the hard way that my Krups gvx burr grinder was not up to the task of grinding beans for my new Isomac Venus.  There was no way I could shell out the money to an electric ginrder that was up to the task.   As a last resort I decided to try the Zassenhaus.  So far I am very impressed with what this little machine can do.  My first batch of coffee grinds was consistent but proved to fine for the Isomac Venus.  However, a slight adjustment and I found myself getting a smooth shot with excellent crema in ~25 sec.  By the way it  only takes about 2 minutes to grind enough beans for 3 to 4 double shots.
