Grinder that does the job
Phil from Oak Hill, VA– Verified Buyer
This is the first burr grinder that I've owned, so my analysis may be somewhat uninformed, but I was quite pleased with the Bistro. Easy to assemble, easy to use and with a modern look. The matte rubber look isn't my favorite, as it stands apart from the sea of stainless appliances in my kitchen, but the results were what I had hoped for... a rather consistent grind.
Perfect for my needs
Melinda from Grand Junction, CO– Verified Buyer
I got tired of grinding my beans "in-store," (espresso grind) when the results was so inconsistent (same store, same machine, same tick mark for espresso). Nothing worse than watery espresso when the grind isn't right for the method.
Ramon from Bartlett, IL
I had purchased other units for $20-$40 on the store but never gave me consistency on the grind. They had a lot of variation which made it difficult to control the flavor.
Stylish and beautifully crafted coffee grinder
Joan from Stuart, FL– Verified Buyer
I chose this coffee grinder because of the wide variety of grinds, modern looks, and the Swiss workmanship.

Great inexpensive conical burr grinder. Very fast, quiet, with a consistent grind for pour over & Aero Press. Very easy to clean, love the Glass collection Jar.
Quiet, consistent, no static
Aaron from Salmon, ID– Verified Buyer
While I don't have experience with the $200+ grinders out there, I can say that this is by far the quietest grinder I have ever heard. Compared to the other grinders I have used it also produces a much more consistent grind. The non-static glass grounds container might be my favorite feature. First of all the grounds come in through the top instead of the side, which eliminates mess at the grinder. Secondly anyone who has experienced a static charged plastic container that shoots grounds all over the kitchen will understand how obnoxious they can be. Not a problem with this container.
Dian from Meriden, CT– Verified Buyer
The unit is compact but holds a nice reservoir of beans so I'm able to store what I need for a couple of days at a time. It's quieter than my old grinder (another brand). I found it easy to use. Simple to store and it looks attractive. I only use drip or espresso grind and both were to my taste. I am very pleased with the product.
Works well but PLAN AHEAD if you are brewing for more than two people at a time!
Courtney from Portland, OR– Verified Buyer
I am so enjoying the lack of sediment now that I have a consistent coarse grind for my French press coffee. Works well and is an attractive appliance and the bottom glass canister works very well- no static electricity and no grounds flying out. NOTE: directions specify to only grind 20 seconds at a time, then wait 5 minutes to avoid heat buildup that may damage grinder. This will be VERY ANNOYING if you are making coffee for more than 2 people at a time and forget to grind your coffee in batches ahead of time. Perhaps all burr grinders in this price range (inexpensive) are limited this way- worth checking out.
Well made burr coffee grinder that is super easy to operate.
Richard from Campbell, CA– Verified Buyer
At around $100 this grinder is unbeatable value and a great step up from blade grinders that typically pulverize the beans into a fine dust that is unsuitable for drip and french press coffee makers. There is virtually no spillage of coffee grounds and grounds do not remain stuck to the glass receptacle. Clever design keeps the glass receptacle in place even if you tip the grinder upside down during cleaning.
Great Grinder for the Price
Mark from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer
I am really happy with this Grinder. I read many other reviews online and many have said this is a great bang for you buck and I cannot disagree. The grinder has a small footprint, and is not very tall, so it can fit under many counters. The grind is consistent and I use it primary for moka espresso.
