This grinder is awesome, It's fast and virtually zero retention. Excellent performance, quickly response, low noise. If you want the best cost-benefit Mahlkonig GH-2 Filter Coffee Grinder is the best choice.
Works great but overpriced. After buying found this type for as low as $45. Paid over $130

product was great, support excellent. They really went the extra mile.
Love the machine! Love Majesty!
Great coffee grinder. The minor disadvantage of the model is touch control buttons, where I usually prefer mechanical, but it may be a matter of taste.
Overall good value for money, would recommend it to anybody.
Had only positive experience with service & delivery too.
Exceeds expectations, worth the purchase and tastes better making it at home than from coffee shop as you can tailor it to your personal preference easily.
We ordered a La Marzocco Linea Mini espresso machine and Mazzer Mini grinder. Within 2 weeks, it had all arrived in perfect condition. The LM was the latest model with Wifi which was just announced recently, which also saved us from having to buy a retrofit kit. Everything is working great!
works well, reasonably quiet for a grinder - as advertised
I’ve only had my Elektra Microcasa for over a week now and in that time have learned how to pull a decent shot. There’s not too bad a learning curve on a unique machine like this, all though I have been a barista for years. For someone with zero experience crafting espresso, understanding the nuances of the process might be a bit more daunting. Lever machines are said to be particularly fussy regarding the different brewing elements: water temperature, dose of coffee, quality of beans, proper grind, proper tamp, etc. That being said, I have a long way to go in terms of extracting a truly great shot, which is partially what draws me to a spring-piston lever machine; creating espresso is an art and having this type of hardware/process versus a an E61 pump machine allows for such user involvement. There’s a zen quantity to pulling my shot in the mornings now that I’ve never before had.
The design of the machine is exquisite: antiquated, high quality components and finishes throughout, beautifully reflective metals-which are remarkably smudge and scratch resistant-and ornate details make this machine an unrivaled ornament on the countertop. My only minor issues thus far are trivial at best: 1. the 1.8 liter boiler is slightly smaller than I’d like. As it’s dangerous to allow the water level to drop below 25% capacity, I find myself refilling the tank once every day or other day. I’d certainly be adding water more than that if I was preparing for friends as well as myself. 2. The portafilter builds up pressure like the rest of the machine, and if the boiler is still pressurized the portafilter tends to explode a little upon removal, spewing bits of espresso about. Equipping this machine with a 3 way solenoid valve that depressurizes the group head, which the Semiautomatica has, would be really nice, especially for the price. 3. The touch points on the machine (lever handle and portafilter handle) are a high quality rubberized material that’s pretty standard through the industry. I’ve seen previous models that had wooden touch points which I think would perfect the aesthetic.
To touch on another important point, the steam arm is very impressive indeed. The machine has a nice dry steam and at a really nice pressure. I can’t get the same quality foam for lattes or cappuccinos nearly as easily on the $12,000 machines I use at work. Also, Majesty coffee offered free shipping and sent the item off promptly. I’ll be using them again in the future. In closing, in the brief time I’ve spent with the machine I absolutely love it and can’t wait to perfect the craft of brewing. Especially considering the Microcasa A Leva is supposed to yield some of the best coffee out of any espresso maker, regardless of price, when you get all the elements just right.
Machine was out of stock for a long time but staff was very responsive and helpful in helping me order it.
The machine itself is great. A piece of art that also makes amazing espresso.
No issues with Majesty Coffee. Product has design issues. The steam release valve sticks requiring machine to be monitored while heating. Spot on coffee handle is not at right angle to handle making it difficult to pack coffee. Steam wand is too close to tank making it difficult to forth. Drip tray slides easily, easier not to use it. Space between drip tray and coffee handle limits size and shape of cup, making double shots more difficult. The PC-16 is not for armatures..
I work from a shared space, my business address is my home, but you were unable to deliver to my home a piece of equipment that was neither heavy nor big. Was very complicate to arrange the pick up from a fedex location 1.5 hours from my home.
Other than that equipment works very well.

I’ve owned high end espresso machines for the last 25 years. La Speziale Dream is the best!
Beautiful design, fast heating and endless ability to produce consistent high quality espresso, lattes, etc.
My order was promptly processed. I was kept advised of its progress. Shipping was fine. My questions were answered by customer service with absolutely no delay. Highly recommended! Roaster works really well. There are two issues...it's difficult to hear cracks, and the volume on the shut off warning needs to be increased.
Attempted to get the issue resolved within Majesty Coffee, but they transferred me to the manufacturer (Gene). Manufacturing company hasn’t done anything to resolve the issue. Waited months to get this roaster only to receive a defective one.

What are the 4 different buttons for ?
Easy ordering, quick delivery
Just received this grinder in red; the color is gorgeous on this solidly built machine. After dialing in on some new beans, I have received some good shots from the grinder and look forward to many years of quality espresso. I highly recommend this grinder if you appreciate a good value in terms of quality Italian design and consistent grind output.
I have been using a few grinders around $1000 budget. One of my recent purchases was Eureka Atom. However, I wasn't totally happy with the result and I was researching k-30 since this was the official grinder for WBC. So I returned the Eureka Atom after two weeks and purchased this one. I am exceptionally happy with this choice. This is also very ideal for home baristas since it it perfect for single dosing (no popcorn effect). Don't hesitate! Invest your money!!!
