I've not used the Innova, but used a similar grinder (Demoka Mini Moka).
The quality of grind was superb. Easily the match of a Rocky, if not
better. It makes the neatest little shavings of coffee. Downsides were
it was slow, quite noisy, and made a BIG mess. The coffee gets a great
static charge from grinding, and doesn't get to sit in a doser to
dissipate the charge. Therefore, the coffee flys EVERYWHERE while you
are trying to direct it into the portafilter or other container. It
literally bounces right out of the container due to static charge. The
Innova may not have this issue, so take this only as a possible concern.
For the price, it's a great grinder, but beware you could have some
static issues. The other issues (speed, noise, etc) aren't really a big
deal. Oh, it's also a bit tougher to adjust grind with the worm gear
arrangement. Not difficult, but there are no numbers to guide you to
repeatable spots. Just use a pen or marker to mark favorite spots on
Your favorite stores, helpful shopping tools and great gift ideas.
