    That looks almost identical to the Kogan one posted recently, but without the weighing capability. The Kogan one is $89 though...

    You will find the forum doesn't allow direct links to non forum sponsors. You may want to write what it is if looking for replies.

    It may do the job but will I would suspect it to be of decidedly poor build quality and built to low tolerances. You can't sell a grinder at a sub-$100 RRP and have it perform like a the big boys.

    It would probably be a good choice for non-espresso grinding requirements, filter, plunger, drip etc. but it would lack grind consistency at the espresso end, that is if it can even grind fine enough for traditional espresso. Poor consistency is a problem for all types of grinding really, some are just more forgiving than others. Espresso is not forgiving.

    A lot of domestic "espresso" grinders are suited to a customer base who use machines with dual wall baskets. These baskets will output a set pressure all the time so no matter what grind you put into it, coffee will come out at a certain rate. This can look like the grinder is grinding properly but it's just the design of the basket doing all the work.

    I’d wait for Andy’s review of the Kogan for $89 (assuming it turns up in the mail eventually). ��
