It has exceeded my expectations in that it does a very fine grind when set up correctly, expect to waste a small amount of coffee beans whilst you experiment. The correct fitting of the upper grinding part is VERY important, it will not work if fitted incorrectly. The only negative thing I would say is that the instruction manual is more of a "guide" than any thing else, so read it several times and try to understand the information as presented. This machine has opened up a whole new world of coffee flavour for me, I hope it does for you too.
Turns out I was right. The Graef is a lovely piece of kit. The biggest thing about a grinder is whether it can grind fine enough for an espresso machine and this most definitely can with room to spare. Easily fine enough and then some. The built quality is just great and that switch is really industrial feeling. The burrs are nicely cut and hardened. Out of interest, even though the seller is from Germany, the grinder had a British plug fitted.
I think this will last for many years and I'm very happy with the job it does. Just go for it, you won't regret it.
I ordered this machine as my Sage Smart Grinder broke leaving me unable to have coffee with my Sage Dual Boiler espresso machine. I ordered this as a stand in replacement burr grinder .. After about 2 weeks of use, I have to say it's not half bad. It's build quality is just fine, it does get down fine enough for espresso (I didn't do any adjustments, just took it out the box and plugged it in then set a grind setting. I am using about 5.3 at the moment). I initially struggled a little as it's only manual on/off (either by the switch or by pressing a button with the porterfilter) - So after the fully automated Sage grinder I was not used to having to judge how much to dose and found myself early in the morning getting it slightly off resulting in too high or low pressure.. I got the hang of it and it's been fine - I do think it's good for the price. Not loud, well built, looks good.. Yes it makes a mess, but most grinders in my experience do. Sage are sending me a Smart Grinder Pro this week so I will go back to that, but this will find a new lease of life i'm sure.
I turned it down a few notches and it now makes perfect espresso grind in seconds. The room smells of coffee even before you start with the coffee maker.
Its nice to know the machine doesn't have to run at the hardest setting, its capable of more than I need it for. In short I love it, I'm going to buy only beans from now on, very happy with my purchase and would recommend
The first unit I received did not power :( However the seller was helpful and promptly replaced. I have put this down to being unlucky and the unit definately has a quality feel about its components. Being an engineer I love the chunky metal toggle switch.
It's quick to operate and very quiet for a coffee grinder. Positive soft click mechanism as you dial in your grind setting. Two adapter rings and auto setting to drop your portafilter underneath one handed.
I'm currently using only for filter coffee and plan to move to espresso soon. The fine setting looks plenty small enough for pressurised baskets however. Also you can adjust the top burr if you want to go finer.
I expect if you are a "high maintenance" espresso buff you would want to spent more on something more towards the commercial quality but I expect this is a great grinder for those looking for a fresh tasting cuppa, want something good quality and don't wish to remortgage for the privilege.
