It doesn't matter what you do, how long you grind, slap the side as the instructions say, even turn it upside down, shake it like Elvis and grind until you fall asleep -- there will probably be beans that are untouched virgins when you scoop out the ground coffee. Even if there are not, you will find pockets of course ground beans. The chamber is small, but the blades are smaller. They are far above the bottom, so there is room for a convention of beans down there, and the small blades quickly throw up a layer of ground beans along the walls that stick there and don't grind unless you get them off the walls. The best way is to open it and stir the contents with a spoon and that just makes a mess. Even then as you scoop the grounds out, there may be whole beans left. The blades are too short and too slow to impart much velocity to the grind and quickly are just whirring around in a pocket while most of the coffee is not involved in the process.
And then, if you want to make ten cups worth of ground beans, the small chamber will inevitably spill ground coffee on the counter even with the most cautious scooping. This thing is only a good fit for percolator grind, and it's too small to even make a half pot's worth.
I measured the maximum amount of coffee the manual suggests, 40 grams. I turned on the grinder for 3x10 seconds, as suggested. Between the "runs", I lightly tapped the grinder, as suggested. Then put it back to the counter, which is frustrating to do, as the cord comes from the bottom of the appliance, and every time you put it down you have to find the little opening where the cord should come out and place the cord in there, otherwise the grinder doesn't sit flat. After total 30 seconds, the result was way too coarse coffee at the top half, and a cake of very fine powdered coffee at the bottom half. You know like the sand cookies the kids make at the playground. That needs to be scraped out from the bottom.
I was thinking about my old coffee grinder... Finely, evenly ground coffee, no cake. If there was a bit that got stuck to the bottom, a light touch was enough to move it. I tried the Capresso one more time, then put it back into the box. I ordered the good old Mr Coffee from Amazon for $15 (I now had enough ground coffee until it arrives) and returned the Capresso.

Grinds great coffee and the grounds don't get warm which is a plus. I can grind about 5 tablespoons of beans before I feel like it is too full. That works find for me.Published 23 days ago by UPtechGUY
It's a decent grinder when it is serviceable, but it quit working in less than 6 months (being used only once per week).Published 3 months ago by Lace C
This stopped working after a couple works. Then it would work some mornings, but not others... seemed to be no reason for it. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Kelsey
Great product, after reading reviews on making the best coffee in Cook's Illustrated I purchased this and have since ordered two more for my DIL's. We can tell the difference!Published 4 months ago by Marmaduke
Terrible design. Grounds on the bottom are too finely ground and on the top, not ground, even if you shake, stir...Also makes a mess when you remove the lid. Read morePublished 6 months ago by BKgastronomer
