Not quite fine enough,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Krups Expert GVX231 Burr Coffee Grinder (Kitchen & Home)
I like it in all respects except one. I have been using it for a month, and have it set on the finest setting as I like a good crema on my coffee. My Gaggia makes a super cup of coffee with coffee I have bought already ground, or coffee from beans I have ground in my old blade-type grinder. I bought the burr after reading that burring was much kinder to coffee than blade-chopping. I just wish I could make it burr just a little finer. Have written to Krups for advice, but await a reply. It would be a shame to go back to chopping, or buying pre-ground, but I think coffee should be just right. I'm sure this product is bought by many people who are expecting to be able to get a fine ground coffee, and I fear they may be disappointed like me. Krups have a good reputation for coffee making, so I am surprised.

I have been making my own espresso coffee for years -- and find the Finest setting on this grinder if anything too fine! I have to use somewhere nearer half way, otherwise some of the very fine grounds actually get forced through my espresso machine filter and into the cup...

Try the James Martin whal grinder I've found that the grind is very fine, good enough for filter and espresso machines.
