Excerpt: Bought this grinder in 2006 for my daughter. She took it to college with her. We use it because it doesn't make a mess. Until a couple of days ago it was running great and then it just stopped. I'm back to buy another one. We cold brew in the Summer so we use it a lot. The grind is perfect. You make your own course or fine grind and it is perfectly fine for espresso just don't fill the container to capacity for a very fine grind.
Excerpt: I bought this years ago in Seattle, to grind my coffee beans - about 2-4x every week. Writing to counter the other bad reviews. It's a handsome coffee grinder, reasonable noise level, light, easy to store. I love the measure lines on the inside. I only make 8 "cups" coffee in my french press for the two of us, so volume is not an issue. But as I'm learning more about coffee - I do notice now that the grinds are a bit uneven, which can affect the bitterness of the coffee.
Excerpt: I really don't know why there are negative reviews. I've had mine for over 6 years and it works perfectly every time. I like grinding my own beans and feel my coffee tastes fresher because of it. I don't like to use the ones in the stores as I feel you might get some of the previous beans that were used before in your bag. The only negative is that I like to grind about half the can or bag at a time and the container is fairly small, so it takes a little time.
Summary: I got this blender from a store and at first wasn't sure if I want this. We are just two people in the house and this item seemed like a heavy duty item. I got it anyway and I am very happy that I did. It works great with small or large amount of coffee beans. In a few seconds you'll have fine grounded coffee. Very satisfied with my coffee grinder, and highly recommend it.
Excerpt: I've never had a problem with this grinder. It looks good with my Cuisinart coffee maker, as it shares the same design profile. It grinds the coffee appropriately for the filter, and I never have a problem with the taste of the brew. I clean the grinder bowl and the cover with my finger after each use, and have never had an issue with grinds flying all over the place.
