Detailed Commentary

This thing is great! I've had a Bialetti Brikka for well over a year, and I'd been using a super cheap blade grinder. This thing really made a huge difference in the quality of the coffee! It's very easy to use, and I don't find that it's too much work at all. I can grind enough coffee for the full-size 4 shot Brikka in about 2 minutes. The grind itself is very even, which is a huge improvement over my previous grinder. You also can't beat the price, as most electric burr grinders are well over $200. I think the extra effort in this case is well worth the money saved. It's also a lot of fun to use! I think half the reason I'm drinking more coffee now is just because I like to use the grinder...

The only problem I've discovered is that the adjustment nut on the main grinder shaft will sometimes move on it's own as you grind coffee. If it does, the grind become finer and finer as you grind. I just make sure to hold onto it while grinding, and that keeps it from moving.

Buying Experience

Sweet Marias was the only vendor I was able to find that stocks these mills. They had everything in stock, and shipping was very prompt!

Three Month Followup

Still using it all the time! Haven't used an electric mill since I bought it, and it's still delivering the same great grinds that I did the first time. I imagine I'm going to be happily using this thing for a very long time.

One Year Followup

Still delivering the same great consistent grind as always! I use it almost every day, and haven't gotten tired of it at all... I actually quite look forward to it!
