Best house product I've ever purchased (and Best grinder I've ever used)
on 4 April 2016
My girlfriend and I have been purchasing a lot of household items since moving in, and this is, hands down, my favorite.
We have been steadily developing a coffee habit and decided to get an espresso machine, deciding on a Gaggia Classic and managing to snap up 2nd-hand one for a bargain.
Needing a grinder, we then bought the "De'Longhi KG79 Professional Burr Grinder" (Which came highly recommended here on Amazon). It turned out to be absolute crap, and no matter how fine the grind was set, the coffee would always come out incredibly coarse. We bought this as a replacement.
To say it's a step up would be a MASSIVE understatement. This thing is a beauty by comparison. The array of grind options (60!) is staggering, and even at setting 21/60 (towards the coarse end of what the guide recommends for espresso coffee) the coffee is ground 10 times finer than the DeLonghi on its finest setting. On top of that, it's infinitely more consistent. You can also select the number of shots of coffee you would like, and tailor the grind time so you get exactly the right amount and, once you've dialed it in, get the perfect cup every time.
Intuitive and simple to use
Very well designed (especially with cleaning in mind)
If you're looking at grinders (like the DeLonghi) and wondering if it's worth spending the extra money... It 100% is.
