Is this grinder truly incapable of grinding fine enough for espresso? My wife purchased one from an online discount retailer who will not accept returns once the item was used. I have had to drastically overfill the portafilter on my Gaggia Color and tamp with nearly my body weight to reach twenty seconds of brew time. Any advice would be appreciated.

Phillip, This grinder does a good job for things like drip coffee and French Press. It cannot grind fine enough nor consistent enough to really make a quality espresso.

Chris, Thanks for the response. I thought I may have got a lemon, but it appears it was only wishful thinking!
