Yes, it's expensive. But considering the impact it's had on the taste of my coffee, I think it's definitely worth the money. Grounds are uniformly consistent and make it easy to taste differences in region and roast. The hopper feeds beans into the burrs smoothly and has yet to jam.
A minor quibble: on the coarsest setting the vibration of the motor can shake the ground container out of alignment from the port, which makes a bit of a mess if I'm not there to hold it in place. Typically I'm grinding on a finer setting, though, so it doesn't come up a lot
It is extremely versatile and offers more choices than he ever anticipated. It doesn't take up alot of room on the counter & is quiet. As he said...it is the best gift. I highly recommend this grinder, you won't be disappointed
