We've owned this grinder for 2 years and it's great. I bought it
used and don't know how long the prior owner had it or used it, but it's still
running strong. I got a great deal on it and a La Pavoni espresso machine.
When I looked up how much this grinder costs I thought that's rediculous and
who would spend that much on a grinder? I've always used the $75 grinders that
Costco sells and thought those were perfect. Then I got this...absolute game
changer. Can't ever go back to the cheap grinders.
The grind seems very uniform at the espresso level. Once you get to a coarse grind, like cold brew or French press style, it isn't quite as uniform and there are some fine grinds mixed in with the coarse. Its not a lot and it's not terrible, but if you're buying this for mostly not espresso grind it's something to think about.
It's significantly quieter than any other grinder I've ever used. That part is really nice since our upstairs bedroom is open to the kitchen and with all the other grinders I woke up the wife every morning, not anymore with this grinder.
The 40+ grind settings are great and we can make slight adjustments to the grind to adjust for different roasts or humidity levels in the house.
Overall I highly recommend this grinder with the only thing I can say negative about it is the slight amount of fine grinds mixed in with the coarse when doing a coarse grind.
