A bit on the fine side...
on February 29, 2012
Ok, so this was a Christmas gift to me (I had been notoriously searching for a new burr grinder). The auto grind functionality (based on how much coffee your want to be ground) is pretty neat. Clean up isn't too bad, either. I haven't noticed any issues with filling up the hopper and the coffee getting stale, either (it has a pretty good seal around the top).
However, it is far from perfect.
The coarsest setting possible will get you coffee that is roughly the same size as grits (i.e. barely big enough for a french press - which is what I use). It is just about perfect for a drip coffee pot.
It is also very, very loud (but most coffee grinders are).
It would be a good value at ~$40, but not a cent more.
