2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good choice for espresso, but might help break your lease, March 3, 2012
This review is from: Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill (Kitchen)
Got the "Supreme Grind" and only kept it for one day before returning it. Despite its coffee-house looks, it's cheaply built and horrendously noisy--don't use this at night in an apartment if you like your neighbors. Despite the snarl of its (apparently well-hidden) jet engine, it does a very inconsistent and inadequate job. Even at its finest setting, it produces coffee bean chunks that vary from drip-grade coarse to not-so-fine. If you've got an espresso machine that won't give you that crema unless you feed it consistently finely ground coffee, you'll be disappointed with this grinder. Your espresso machine will blow water through the coarse bits and give you 15-second weak shots. On the other hand, if you need a grinder for drip/filter or French press coffee, this grinder will probably satisfy you since that equipment isn't nearly as "picky" as espresso machines are.
