I certainly hope so! Arrived today, beefy little thing. And it is little, proper tiny, but has a great quality feel to it’s weight.
Initial impressions on aesthetics, I quite like it. I’ve always been a fan of angular design so this suits me just fine, though not a huge fan of the polished areas, a real fingerprint magnet and shows up dirt way too easily; a more matte finish might have been nicer from this viewpoint, but I realise this is subjective.
Everything about it oozes class, except the tray at the bottom; that feels and looks like an afterthought, which I have to admit is a little annoying given the price tag. For example, the beanhopper is hefty, as is the lid that sits on top of it, but this tray appears to be something shaped from a piece of random metal to fit in between the feet. Some real integration with the main body/feet would have been nicer.
The machine is loud, I measured 88db from my mobile (with the mobile sitting on top of the Elizabeth when grinding), but thankfully it’s not for very long. And the actual note of the grinding, isn’t a pleasant note, but that doesn’t really bother me, just an observation as opposed to a criticism.
For me I love how it fits very nicely into my space, almost as if it was designed for it.
@tompoland If we count the smallest dot as “zero”, what sort of range have you been finding for your coffee? Just as a rough guide?
