Bought this after owning several Krup grind and brews that broke year after year. I was shocked to find something that not only brews but also grinds at this price point. Usually they are at least twice as expensive and more. This machine has worked just fine so far. The coffee is good, it seems to grind all the beans fairly thoroughly. I haven't had any build issues so far and it's been about a month. The grinding is loud but no louder than my Krups or a stand alone grinder. I'm hoping this workmanlike little machine will last for a while, it comes with a 2 year warranty which is longer than any other, so that hopefully means they have faith in their product.
