    You get what you pay for

    Burr grinders are most definitely the way to go if you appreciate great fresh coffee you make at home, and buy your quality beans whole. I have owned other burr grinders, yet this Breville is well worth the extra $ you will spend. From its very first use, I appreciate why I spent more this time. Not only is it much quieter, Breville has solved the static electricity problem/mess you get with other grinders. You can fine tune the amount and size of grind (from very fine to course) depending on your personal preference. You can change it from shots, number of cups, fine grind for French press, etc. It has a digital readout that gives you length of time for each grind as well. If you grind your coffee the same every day, it keeps the previous setting in memory and you simply press a button to turn it on, and the same button again to produce your favorite grind. The hopper holds one pound of beans. I believe while grinding, it must not impart heat to the grounds which may directly effect the overall finished coffee taste. Without changing any other factors in my daily routine, the grind produces a more balanced, smooth coffee flavor. I am so impressed with this product, I have ordered the Breville Precision Brewer 12 cup coffee maker to work in concert with this grinder. I should receive it tomorrow. After a bit of use, I will submit a review for it as well. Bottom line, if you enjoy great coffee, this is a great grinder!

    Great Higher-End Home Coffee Grinder

    I bought this as a match to a nice true espresso machine. It easily grinds fine enough to make great coffee shop quality shots. The timer function allows you to dial in exactly how long it needs to go for a perfect shot. Lesser grinders can't give the fine grind or precision of this machine. Adjusting grind, time, and overall ease of use are great. The little accessories it comes with are also a nice bonus. It's overkill if you're just doing drip, press, or the like. Otherwise it's a true buy-it recommendation.

    Grinds Well, But a Mess

    I really like the Brim Pour-Over system, so I purchased the matching grinder. I like a lot about it, but the pull-out grind bin design is seriously lacking. It’s impossible to remove the bin and to transfer freshly ground coffee to your filter without making a big mess. The bin is designed to slide in and out of the grinder base. When you do, ground coffee will cover your countertop. It’s poorly designed and I will unfortunately I need to return this item.

    I purchased this little grinder when starting my coffee shop drive thru. It works good and is able to keep up with the constant grinding. The top that holds the beans isnt very big, so I am always having to fill it. It does jam once or twice during the day, but is an easy and quick fix. Other than those 2 tjings, its a great little machine! Worth the price.

    I'd buy this again for sure. Consistent grind. I use it for drip and it does a great job, and isn't too loud.

    The particle size and time to grind are perfect for early morning rush.
