I'm a coffee geek who's owned one of these for years, and recommended it to family and friends looking for a sub-$100 conical burr grinder.

This is a significant upgrade from a blade grinder, and will definitely improve the quality of your coffee if that's what you've been using. The most common point of failure seems to be the dial. Mine lasted 4-years before it gave in, my in-laws only lasted about a year. Finding replacements is difficult - and I ended up 3D printing this guy [thingiverse.com] as a replacement. You can also just twist the dial with a kitchen knife if/when that happens.

If you're considering alternatives, the next step up in terms of grinders would be the Baratza Encore [baratza.com] (usually around $140) - a great grinder for pourovers, but not one that most coffee geeks would recommend for espresso. If you're looking to upgrade to an espresso grinder, any of the $400+ grinders listed on this page [seattlecoffeegear.com] would probably do the trick. The Baratza Vario is a favorite in coffee communities, if I was investing that kind of $$s into a grinder specifically for espresso, I'd probably prefer one like the Sette that drops directly into a portafilter. Though, admittedly those tend to make a bit more of a mess.

TL;DR: Good value to upgrade your coffee, your dial will probably break, and coffee-geekery can become an expensive hobby.

I have used this everyday for the last 2 years to grind my beans before I make drip coffee. The beans do like to statically stick to the plastic catch bin and can make a mess. Also if you are really picky and don't want any previously ground bean from the last grind a tablespoon or more stays in the shoot from the grinder to the dispenser unless you tap it really hard. I am not too picky just wanted better than preground and it works well for me. If you put your beans in fresh only what you are going to use and grind you can drip like 2 drops of water in with the beans and get less static. Also when mine first arrived the hopper on the top that you turn for grind size had chipped plastic but I emailed Capresso and they shipped a replacement right away at no cost to me. I paid $99.16 from amazon at the time in 2017 so this is a good deal.

Good grinder. Okay for pressurized espresso machines, but will not cut it for standard espresso baskets.

Due to MAP pricing, you'll be waiting a long time unless someone goes out off business and clearances them. The best I could get on that was the 15% off ebay code and ordered free shipping no tax.

Also, the Encore doesn't have an auto-off feature. It has an on-off switch, and a pulse button.

Except for the chipped plastic, you just described all grinders with a plastic bin, not just this one.

Costco has a die cast metal version of this model for a few dollars more, goes on sale occasionally.

Good call on eBay for reducing the price Thumbsup I didn't realise that it didn't have an auto off feature (Google led me to believe that it did) but according to the site I linked: Unfortunately, the Baratza Encore does not have the auto-shut off feature. However, you have the option to purchase an accessory called the Baratza Esatto which will essentially add this feature to your machine.

The OXO BREW Conical Burr Coffee Grinder can be had from Bed Bath Beyond for $80 after using one of their ubiquitous 20% coupons. The OXO has an even grind and virtually no static. On my last grinder, the static was horrible and caused much mess.

As another coffee geek, I just want to second everything said above. This is probably the best sub-$100 grinder out there. There is a die cast metal version that Costco sold for around $85, but I'm not sure if it's still available. This metal version is around $120 at BBB after 20% coupon and is quieter due to the extra weight, but grinds the same. This is still 1000% better than a blade grinder though.

Do yourself a favor and spend $10 more on the stainless one. It's heavier & more premium feeling.

Edit: N/M, that doesn't appear to be the actual stainless steel body one ($130)

Do you recall off hand what settings you used for your print? I just saw this the other day and was going to print a replacement dial since mine broke a while ago.

Also I'll second what you said. Good grinder especially for the price. The dial is definitely the weak point (hopper a close second as I had a piece of plastic at the bottom break, still functions though).
