I recently realized only freshly grind coffee produced more crema, after reviewed many Youtube demonstrations, discovered Forte AP grinder is the machine could provide: (1) Beautiful design, solid built with all metal housing,(2)Not too loud, (3)Commercial grade in a houshold size, compact with small foot print will not occupy too much counter space, (4)Both weight and time measure methods, (5) Hopper has a locking device to close the beans from falling.
The only trick is when instal the hopper, after you aligned with the metal slot, must turn it clockwise TO HEAR A CLICK TO ENGAGE THE "START", otherwise, the touch screen will work for "Time" and 'Weight" , but the "Start" screen will not grind the coffee, this is a safety deivce not metioned anywhere, (the manual says "locks into position"), the position is to hear a click.
Any improvement? yes, I wish the plastic hopper is thicker to have a thread locking the hopper lid to air tight.
