Again - I highly recommend this grinder!
Greg Ratajik
I wish that we had an easier way to speed up/slow down the motor so that when we have to occasionally grind a more oily roast, the beans don't slip out of the burr.
John Mark
I quickly was able to talk to someone very knowledgable, courteous and helpful.

I've been using this for three weeks. It grinds gorgeously and you can choose how fine/coarse you want the grind. I put it at 16 for my drip coffee.

It's easy to use if you don't have some hand issues (ie, arthritis). Anyone with hand/joints issues, this has no handle to pull out the container that holds the ground coffee. You have to grasp it by the edges and pull, which can be hard for some folks.

The only reason I worry about the quality is that the little knob that you turn to choose how long it will grind has already fallen off once. No biggie. I put it back in. But a grinder THIS expensive should not have loose parts coming off after only 2 weeks of use. So, I'll be a bit anxious about how long it will work effectively and intact.

Still, I'm happy with how it works so far, just not so happy that I'd give it a perfect score.

Update: Stopped working--just plain stopped working--a couple years after purchase. I'm removing some stars for that. For the high price, I'd expect some longevity. For the past year and a half, I've been using a significantly cheaper--but nicely reviewed--burr grinder by Bodum. Does the job fine. Easier to move the setting (for those with joint issues). If it only lasts a couple years, I'll still be ahead, moneywise, than rebuying the Baratza one that's twice the price. :D

I bought this grinder at a little coffee store in Lynnwood, WA. 2 1/2 years ago and had to call the factory right off the bat to get a new timer knob. They were great and I had the knob in two days. It has been absolutely trouble free except for once I neglected to clean it and it refused to start until I did. It is very simple to clean and use, dependable and the grind is good over the entire 40 point range. I use different settings as I like to change my coffee habits every now and then but mostly it's on 20.
Really this is the only machine you need for household or light commercial use. It does the same thing the $400.00 unit does and by far , it is better than any blade grinder. This is not a toy, it is a very heavy machine made from metal with very little plastic.
I would recommend it to any one looking for a good grinder. It's one of those set it up and forget it units that sets on the counter and just keeps going and going and going. It's just a little loud, Not noisy, but after all is is grinding beans. Sometimes I wonder as I get older if it is me or the coffee pot that is really making the noise.

I've had this grinder for a couple of years now. I have been VERY happy with it! It makes an amazing range of grinds, is very consistent, and fairly easy to clean.

It can do anything from a very coarse to a very fine (Turkish) grind. I LOVE making Turkish coffee with this, and is one of the main reasons I got it (as many grinders can't go to that level). It comes out looking like finely ground chocolate powder, and is perfect for Turkish!

The only problem I've had, as noted in other reviews, is the timer handle kept falling off. VERY annoying! I moved a few months ago and the handle went missing, so I ended up having to use a knife to turn the dial - not fun. I finally ordered a new one ($2.50 on their site), and plan on using a touch of glue to keep it attached this time.

Again - I highly recommend this grinder!

I bought this grinder when it was a new product a couple of years back and it has performed well with near daily use all this time. They have excellent FAQs and documentation on their website for people who have any questions on operation or need to troubleshoot a problem. If you call or email them, you get a response or person on the line quickly who will walk you through assessing the problem and will send you out a replacement part, at no charge, asap. Companies like Baratza(and amazon.com) still understand how to create customer loyalty. If you need a conical burr grinder (any coffee enthusiast does), you'll get years of use and enjoyment out of this one.

This is a family company and they support their equipment, down to providing spare parts at a reasonable cost and they even have videos and tutorials on how to take this thing apart, and replace parts. I have replaced burrs, and I have cleaned out the works inside the case all with no disasters. I wish that we had an easier way to speed up/slow down the motor so that when we have to occasionally grind a more oily roast, the beans don't slip out of the burr. I also wish we had more control over the grind. There are about 25 steps marked, but I don't really see that much difference between say 11 (fairly fine) and 25 (coarse French press).

This beats a whirly blade all to hell because it's predictable and the beans pass through the burrs only once, which means they don't heat up. I make a Chemex and French Press, not espresso, and this unit is more than enough for those techniques. If I wanted to make espresso, I'd spend the extra 200 and buy one of the more dedicated espresso mills.

I bought this grinder as a Cristmas present and after ordering it, found out it was on back order and would not make it in time for Christmas. I called the supplier directly, and they responded very favorably with getting the grinder delivery expedited. It made it on time

And by the way...this is the second one of these I've purchased. Very Nice!
