The Infinity is a great all-around grinder and can't be beaten for the money. I've been told that it grinds equally as well as the updated Virtuoso and many other high end home conicals. I own the brushed chrome model, which is identical to the plastic one ecxept for the metal housing. It's the type of grinder that will work well for press, drip and espresso. You will have to clean it often, but it should serve you well. Later!
