It has 54mm flat blades, comes with a timer and is ideal for those that need a very fine grind for speciality coffees.
It has very little grind retention, after you grind a shot - grind out a gram or 2 to remove the old coffee grinds.

It is an attractive and compact machine and sits well next to most coffee machines as it has a neutral colour - shiny stainless steel.
