The Gaggia MDF Grinder is a commercial grade burr grinder equal to those found in Europe's espresso bars and restaurants. Automatic dosing allows a premeasured amount of ground coffee to drop directly into the filter holder. Pull the lever once for one cup espresso, or twice for 2 cups. Precision-machined grinding burrs can be easily adjusted for 39 different degrees of fineness. The large hopper holds 10 ounces of coffee beans. Easy to use and perfect results are achieved each time. *Please note that most grinders are tested at the manufacturer and coffee grounds may be found in the grinder as a result. All machines sold are new unless otherwise clearly stated.

This brute cost a lot ($240 at the time) but when I think about it, it works to 5 cents a day. Good deal, I say!
-There are 34 grind settings, so if you cannot find one to meet your needs, you're probably the pickiest person in your hemisphere.
-The grind it makes is very consistent at every setting I have tried so far. I'll leave it up to you to try the other 25 settings.
-The smell after grinding a few beans up makes my kitchen smell like a coffee shop
-The selling party packed up the machine ridiculously well. It was a box within a box within a box within a box within yet another box. These padded little corners supported each box to keep the grinder secure and shock resistant during shipping.
-The grinder seems incredibly well built for the most part. It might way more than my fat, old beagle.
-It's not silent, but it won't wake the dead (or your neighbors) either.
-I haven't noticed any excess coffee dust in my kitchen how you get with cheaper machines.
-Bean hopper holds a respectable quantity of beans, though the seal could feel a bit more airtight.
-The dispenser makes me feel like a real barista
-The included instruction manual is *awful* There is some wording on how to operate it, but figuring out how to change the grinding setting was like playing charades with the illustrations. In order to make the grind coarser or finer, you twist the entire hopper and read this small dial that is recessed into the front of the machine. It's easy to do once you figure it out though.
-They should really put some rubber feet on the bottom of the machine so it doesn't bounce around and vibrate so much. This should be easy to fix by buying some rubber appliance footies at a store or placing it on a kitchen towel. I think the machine will operate more silently once I fix this issue.
-The arm that dispenses the grind into your portafilter squeaks a little bit, but it's not a big deal. Some lubricant will probably fix that when I have spare time and nothing else to do.
-They test the machine at the factory to ensure it's functioning properly, but there's coffee ground everywhere on the machine and in the packaging when you open it up. A damp cloth rectifies the issue, but it seems like something that they could fix at the factory.
Really, all of my complaints are super minor, so if you want a good burr grinder in this price range, I don't see why you'd buy anything but this. The only thing left to test is longevity, so I will update this review should I encounter any issues in terms of reliability.
It's been about two years, and I still love the grinder. Works like new.
I also don't want to leave my unground beans in the grinder.
Fortunately, I don't have to do either with this grinder. I measure/weigh the coffee beans I want to grind, put them in the top and grind it. After it's ground, it takes 8 or 10 doser lever clacks to dispense it into my Gaggia Classic portafilter. That part makes it sound lie a real coffee shop.
The bean hopper at the top and the ground coffee doser hopper at the bottom sit empty between uses.
