Wonderful upgrade from my old burr grinder. The options are a little overwhelming, but that is a good thing!
It is actually kind of eerie after 10 years of using a Silvia to get absolutely consistent coffee that gets all the little nuances of flavor. An amazing machine.
This is a huge step up from my beloved Rancilio Sylvia, which was 20 years old. Excellent Machine- with a very gently learning curve. Highly recommended!
I’m a completely self taught barista who got a wild hair to open a small coffee shop in a location that didn’t have one and this machine did not disappoint!! Minus the manual not being friendly to the inexperienced..- with a little research I was elbow deep in milk!!! I pulled about 80 shots my first day and around that much my second! Fantastic machine, if you can eeek out the money!!!
Tony was a tremendous help and expertly answered all of my questions. I really appreciate the time that he took with me to compare various models and am very happy with my decision!
The grinder is a solid piece of equipment and is very high quality. It's nice to grind to the gram rather than do a timed grind and then have to weigh.
Since filled hoppers are easily swapped, I ordered a couple of extras and now can have a few varieties on hand.
I really like the contemporary styling. I also notice that when viewing the Baratza from the front, as it currently sits on my counter, that the focus is on the "business end" of the machine, and the dramatic styling becomes more subdued, enhancing the Baratza's look. Thank you, Majesty Coffee!
