Great for drip coffeemakers and espresso.

 

If you're getting this for espresso in particular, then it is perfect. For a drip coffeemaker i'd recommend using one of the last two settings. If you use a french press this might not grind coarse enough for you.

It's quieter than any other grinder I've owned. It gives consistent results. It is compact, sturdy, and easy to clean

I find all but the last two grind settings to be very fine ; I feel the bean container could stand to have a higher capacity, but it's adequate

The Best Home Grinder I Have Ever Had

 

I have wanted a burr grinder for a long time, but usually they cost around $200. This is a great value and I am very happy with my purchase.

It is relatively quiet, gives a perfect even grind, has great grind and cup number settings and doesn't add extra heat to your already roasted beans. Use some cold filtered water and you will be surprised at the difference. No more bitter taste and no...

Occasionally the beans will get "stuck" when using a finer setting, just give it a little shake to get them going again

Consumer review by:

great size looks great and works beautifully

 

Looks great with the other stainless appliances. Makes great coffee and fits in the limited counter space with fairly low cabinets. Easy set up and easy to read clock. Doesn't require paper filters. A really good price. Ordered online and had delivered...

great price and fits well on the counter

Love the cute small, stylish design! I usually use single cups at a time so I was looking for the smallest burr grinder on the market, which this seemed to be. Even at the lowest cup setting, however, it grinds more than what I need for one mug of...

Krups Coffee Maker

 

Took a few times to get the strength like I like it. I ended up using the aroma setting and less coffee. I know experts say that the slower brewing time makes the coffee bitter, but it tastes fine to me. It still is faster than the Phillips coffee...

Easy to clean ; Holds Paper Filter ; Looks Nice

None so far
