And very nicely at that.  Thanks to Eddy Dove and Ed Needham for the heads
up on this tool.  When I am ready to move up to a bigger, better grinder, it
will make a fine gift to a family member.
The taste, it is like night and day.  There is a missing component of the
taste that I am not sad to be gone.  A bitter, grainy feel to the outer edge
of the tongue that is now greatly subdued.  I tried two preparations of the
same roast side by side with both grinders and it was definitely missing
from the burr grinder.  And the flavors, they seem a bit more clean and
pronounced now that they no longer need to compete with the bitterness.  I
am assuming that is the over extraction from the fines?
Anyway, I appreciate the advice on this small and affordable grinder.  It
has taken my morning coffee to another level.  Next up, a Newco OCS-8.  I
need something to make large quantities of coffee for travel to work.  Two
carafes and the OCS-8 should pretty much do it.
Seeing the change in quality with each step makes me wonder what a cup of
coffee from some of your kitchens must be like.  I suspect it is rather
difficult to not be a gregarious host with such coffee available to the
friends and neighbors.
