    My first grinder

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    After much research and a limited budget ......

    Well I couldnt wait for Mothers day.
    I bought a Breville smart grinder yesterday.
    (Dont tell my offspring their money is still coming.)

    However, I took it back to the store this morning!
    I phoned the store immediately when I discovered that the LED wasnt working.
    I had to rely on guess work and eyeball the amount needed.
    NOT what I had paid for.

    It did grind nicely about mid range of the grind dial wheel, wasnt too noisy, looked great on the bench next to the Technivorm and the coffee tasted great.
    I got to the store and the sales lady simply removed the white plastic label from the LED and Voila!!
    The manual does say "Before use....remove all promotional labels"
    I felt such an idiot as it didnt look like a label.
    But I did get a comforting hug from the young salesman who came over to share in the joke.

    Feel free to laugh with us.

    Thanks guys.
    There surely is lots of info on this site.
    The reviews and opinions here have most certainly helped in my final choice for a coffee maker and grinder.
    This* morning I dialled* in a courser grind and used slightly less.*
    Even better!
