I'd like to buy one as a gift. Have people had good experience with the Krups GVX1-14? It looks like it doesn't take too much counter space, unlike the Kitchen Aide. I have a Solis, which I like very much, although it's not that easy to clean. It's more expensive and I'd buy this again, but am interested in others' experience.
FYI, I have reviewed coffeegeek.com, but those folks are waaay more serious than the intended recipient and a Rocky is out of my price range. I'm looking for a grinder for daily use, but for a cup each morning and the occasional evening espressos for a group.
