Do you had washed it?
Your JavaPress enters water in the storage cup after washing?
as in this Lucky&Sons:

The Hario pro grinder is very good. However if you have smaller hands, maybe one of the slim travel grinders might be more suitable.

I have received it today, seems a Java clone for less price, all parts looks quality inox steel inclusive the spoon and the same used on the Java grinder except the handle that is not inox but carbon steel, but I can live with it at this price.
Thanks to all posters for the help, much appreciated.

How is it holding up and how easy is it to clean? I am ready to get one.

I only used it 3 times and it worked fine and easy to use, I havent washed it with water yet, I just shaked it to get the dust out. I don't know if it should be washed with water or just vacuuming the dust. The only thing I did not like is that the shaft is not square but has 5 sides/pentagon and Iam afraid it will strip the shaft.

I noted all brands and grinders use a pentagon shaft.

My Zassenhaus does anything from french to espresso with no problems. Its worth spending more and getting something that's good for life.

You only spent a few dollars, so I wouldn't expect the same performance as something better.  My Gaggia MDF is a lifetime machine, but it cost like a lifetime machine.
