I got it as a gift from my sister 6 months ago! At first, I was excited because it was easy to dispense the right amount of coffee. After 2 months it wasn't working properly. When I pressed it, it wouldn't release anything,then if I pressed it again it released a little bit, then if I pressed it a 3rd time, it would release a big amount of coffee making a big mess.

Love this for two reasons; I always get the same amount every time I French Press my coffee, and it keeps the coffee fresh longer because of the seals in the lid. Amazingly handy. Was really sorry to see they were no longer carrying them in the store as after I got one for Christmas, I ended up getting 5 friends one because they loved it so much!

This is a great concept, but it definitely needs to be redesigned.It has made a mess on my counter from the very beginning, grounds leak out every time you try to dispense. I haven't even had it six months and now it has broken completely. I wanted it to work, it would've been so convenient.

Tidy Coffee Storage
If you value the quality of your ground coffee, this is a perfect solution. The containers keeps ~3/4 pounds of coffee in an airtight container and truly preserves the grinds, dispensing correct amount in measured aliquots. Like almost everything else, it does not last forever. The life span appears to be about 12-18 months. When the product is in its death throws, it no longer dispenses coffee appropriately and eventually the "hand pump" breaks. I am on my third coffee dispenser. That being said, I would gladly purchase another when this one breaks!!!
