Good Grinder Pros: -decent size bean container/holder. -more control over fine/coarse grind -not too messy Cons: -noisy -grind fine/coarse marker on bean container is hard to see so I had to use a permanent maker and mark the side (both sides since it can go on two ways). But not a big deal. Other: I haven't had it but a few weeks and don't grind all the time but seems sturdy/dependable. I'm also not a coffee connoisseur so am probably overlooking the fine points of coffee and grinding. November 29, 2012
Did not work Sorry to say this grinder doesn't work well. The coffee beans get caught in the grinder and stop the machine. Returned it for a $60 Cuisinart which works great. November 15, 2012
Espressione Model MEC-5198 Burr Coffee Grinder This is a very nice burr coffee grinder, it's fairly quiet, does a great job of consistently making the perfect grind every time, settings are from 1(really fine) to 15(really course) , it's about the size of a coffee maker, so it's fairly good size machine. One problem I have with it is if you over fill the hopper there's no real way of getting the rest of the beans out without spilling them all over the place, which you'll need to do to keep it clean, but the more you use it the better you'll get at determining how much to put in.
