This is my first burr grinder and it is definitely a more consistent grind then a blade grinder
I find that there is no difference between its 9 course to fine settings
Altogether a little too fine for a press but great for drip or an espresso machine
UPDATE 6 months later = used once or maybe twice a day died after 6 to 8 months
Not worth the shipping to get it fixed

HASH(0xa3186090) out of 5 stars Decent grind, but awkward design. March 9 2009
By Alan - Published on
Cheap, grinds adequately. The moniker "La Moka" should've clued me in that this was a mediocre manufacturer's lame attempt to make a coffee grinder sound hip or trendy.

It grinds fairly well, but the two-piece plastic hopper for the grounds is awkward and tends to fall apart easily, spraying grounds all over the counter and the machine itself.

Also the dial used to select coarseness can be confusing. 9 is for coarse, 1 is for fine, but there is a left arrow ( <- ) and a right arrow ( -> ) each pointing away from the number, so that if you move the dial all the way to the right, you think you're choosing FINE since the word fine is at the right, but in actuality you're choosing COARSE even though it's on the opposite side. The fine grind is pretty fine, but coarse really isn't, there doesn't seem to be much difference between coarse and fine with this grinder despite your selection.

I regret this purchase.

HASH(0xa3186498) out of 5 stars When it worked, it was bad. Then it stopped working Jan. 20 2010
By C. Yost - Published on
I have two burr grinders, a Starbucks grinder, and this one. I like my Starbucks one okay, but the La Pavoni was terribly inconvenient. I didn't know you could design something quite so bad. Not to mention, a month after buying it it stopped working. Timer goes, but no grinding.

So, when it did work why was it bad? The receptacle for the grinds won't come out without some force, which spills grinds everywhere. Then, you have to take off the lid for it, which gets grinds everywhere. Finally, it's not well shaped so when you pour it into your coffee maker or french press, it gets grinds everywhere.

I only write reviews when I love or hate products (I know, I should write more), and this one I would NOT recommend.

HASH(0xa38223fc) out of 5 stars not so much.... July 23 2012
By Susan R. Mcdaniel - Published on
Color: Black
I bought this burr grinder for my husband's birthday. We read the instructions but still could not figure out how to make adjustments to the grind. If you like really coarse ground coffee, you will be perfectly happy with this product. Also, even though it has adjustments for the amount you can grind, the capture unit only holds a small amount. (It also is difficult to pull out from the grinder.) Needless to say, it was sent back, with a re-stocking fee and the FedEx bill to add to the cost.

HASH(0xa31868dc) out of 5 stars Good for the price Aug. 31 2008

For the price the grinder does a decent coarse grind. I haven't used any other settings beyond the French Press grind. The timer is somewhat fidgety, there is a static problem with the cannister, and the bean reservoir should have a tighter seal. In the end, it grinds better that the industrial grinders that supermarkets never maintain well enough and it's easy and quick to use. It's part of my morning routine and for the price I couldn't find a better electric burr grinder.

HASH(0xa31869c0) out of 5 stars Poor grind, did not last Feb. 3 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I never loved this grinder because the container that catches the grounds does not have a tight fit, making a small mess every day. Moreover, the lid to the catcher is hard to seat correctly.

After 8 months of daily service, this unit no longer grinds beans properly. The finest it will now grind is to split a bean into maybe 2 or 3 pieces.
