I've heard that the Zassenhaus Turkish Coffee grinder should not be used for espresso. (maybe the range of adjustment is such that it's uneven at the espresso level of fineness or cannot be opened up coarse enough for espresso) I don't know what the objection is supposed to be. Any ideas? Anyone with experience with the "Turkish" grinder and espresso? Thanks.

Works pretty well.

I don't know if it's that if "should not" be used versus more like it would take for ever! Occasional use traveling maybe, definitely not suited for day to day espresso use. Takes much longer than the bigger Zass's. I've had a Zass Turkish for a few years, using for travel with press pot. (It's marginal for that job.) At coarser for press pot takes longer to grind for short 32oz press pot than to heat the water. (Basically upper chamber filled heaping with beans so it's hard to put top on without spilling beans) And the finer the grind the longer it takes. Since it's designed for super fine Turkish coffee, should not be a problem grinding fine enough for espresso but have not tried.
