    I bought this as a replacement for an expired Russell Hobbs 10934 coffee grinder. That, despite its many failings, could grind coffee quite finely. This Bodum grinder is much better (and at twice the price, so it should be) but has one major failing: it does not grind very finely, and this seems inherent in its design. It has a feature to prevent the burr grinder being damaged by stones accidentally mixed in with coffee beans. That feature results in the grinder being quite a loose assembly. I'm not an espresso drinker but, grinding for paper filter, I have this grinder set on its finest setting and the grounds are still relatively coarse.

    As noted by a reviewer of Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder - Orange the instruction leaflet is, to put it mildly, not very helpful. For example, it tells you that the grinder is 'pre-set' to medium grinding, whereas it is only set by inserting the coffee bean container and twisting it (you can only insert the container with the grinder at its coarsest setting). However, once assembled it is quite intuitive to use.

    When operating, the grinder grinds quite quickly, the beans flow into the grinder well, and it is no noisier than other burr grinders. But for a grinder where the instructions say it should only be run for 20 seconds before waiting for 5 minutes, the bean container is very over-sized. The seals on both the lids for the bean container and ground container are quite weak, and both come off quite easily. Apart from that the construction seems quite sturdy and solid, and the glass ground container helps to keep static down.

    I've given it some time before posting this review as I wanted to allow the grinder to do its job before making judgment. As a result my start rating has gone down.

    The grinder was well packaged, is aesthetically pleasing and came promptly after ordering. The conical clear plastic bean hopper looks cool but is clunky and a bit cheapish. The lid is ill fitting. The structure as a whole is not particularly strong and seems flimsy compared with other grinders. The coffee is ground into the glass holder and the grinds enter cleanly. This is the cleanest grinder I've owned and none of the troublesome statically charged grounds jumping around the place.

    My main issue is the basic function of the grinder - grinding coffee. As an Aeropress user, I don't need powder-fine coffee but have it sets a few clicks from the finest setting. This alone is a challenge for the grinder. I use freshly roasted mail order beans and this is too difficult for the grinder. Old, soggy beans roasted months ago such as Starbucks beans seem to fare better. Fresh beans do not and this causes the 'safety clutch' to kick in at every use-this is a complete nuisance and means that I have to turn off and empty out the hopper every time.

    My advice: if you do not require fine coffee, are not planning to use fresh beans then this isn't bad. You can however buy better grinders cheaper (don't be fooled by the brand) but if you want espresso fine coffee or plan to use fresh beans, start saving.

    Nice looking grinder but with a fundamental flaw - it simply doesn't grind fine enough for espresso despite what it claims. If this is why you're thinking of buying it, don't. Believe the other reviewers here and look for something different.

    No matter how much I tamp, I can't get a pull longer than 10-15 secs using coffee ground on the so-called "espresso" setting on this machine. This means espressos are acidic and lacking body.

    It's disappointing from a company which seems to pride itself on producing decent coffee making equipment.

    For any other use, it's okay. Looks good in the kitchen, nice big hopper, relatively quiet and the glass jar reduces mess due to static. It will also let you grind direct into a portafilter and doesn't require the jar to be in place to work, like many grinders.

    Shame such an otherwise good grinder falls down on such a fundamental thing.

    Colour Name: Black
    I first started into making proper coffee about 18 months ago as opposed to instant stuff. I have a filter coffee machine and a Gaggia Classic. Gaggia Classic RI8161 Coffee Machine with Professional Filter Holder, Stainless Steel Body

    To complement the Gaggia I have a Krups burr grinder Krups Expert GVX231 Burr Coffee Grinder which is perfectly fine but not a very good quality machine for 1-cup usage (I would grind a batch every few days).

    Santa this year brought me the Bodum with the aim of getting a fresher grind each time and all round less fuss. It's had a hard few weeks work now so I'll review it.

    The Bodum is plastic and glass in construction. The main body is rubberised, the bean container is plastic and the collector is glass. The electrical switch (which is pointless) and the timer setting are both a bit on the tacky side. I feel that given the cost of the grinder, these components could be better.

    So after plugging in the 80cm power cable, how does it perform? On the first few uses, I was gutted! There was me expecting to produce perfect Espresso coffee but all I could get was a strong black - no crema. It got to a point where I was considering returning it to santa but then I decided to swallow the loss of a few man points and read the instructions. I'll come to the instructions in a moment but firstly, it turns out that unlike the Krups, the grind setting (achieved by twisting the bean container) MUST be made whilst the grinder is operating.
