I've used it at 8.5 for a French Press and at 4 for a pour-over cone filter. The grind comes out very even with no big chunks like a blade grinder.
It's nice and compact. It doesn't take much more space on my counter than my blade grinder did. It's quieter, faster, and grinds more at a time.
The burr top should be removed and cleaned out between grindings, especially if you are changing coffee blends or varieties. Beans from a prior batch are still in the grinding chamber; so if you don't want them mixed in with the new batch, you need to pour them out first.
The little cleaning brush that comes with it isn't much use. I clean the burr chamber with a damp paper, towel but I have to be careful not to get bits of paper in the chamber. I'm looking for a better cleaning tool for it now.
This is a good entry-level burr grinder for medium to coarse gound coffee. I have not tried it for very fine espresso, but I don't expect a $50 coffee grinder to be perfect
