Product Description

Capresso - Coffee Burr Grinder

Always the Correct Fineness for Espresso, Drip, French Press and Percolators

Consistent, uniform and fresh grinding for espresso machines, drip coffee makers and French press. The Capresso Coffee Burr Grinder with 17 grind settings allows for adjustment from coarse to fine for any brewing method.

Grinding fresh whole bean coffee immediately before brewing is the first step to achieving the best tasting coffee at home. Ground coffee interacts with the air around it and, within hours, loses a great deal of flavor and aroma. The longer the ground coffee is exposed to air the more flavor is lost and the rich, full-bodied taste of the coffee cannot be obtained.

How Things Work

Setting the Timer

The timer can be set to grind for 2 to 12 cups of brewed coffee. When grinding in the finest position, less coffee per second will pass through the grinder than when grinding in the coarsest setting. The amount of ground coffee varies quite a bit depending on how coarse or fine you grind and whether you use light, dry beans or dark, oily beans. After grinding a few times, you will find the correct grind amount position for the amount of coffee you want to grind. Remember, you can always stop the grinding process by simply pushing the on/off button.

I love coffee, and it's kind of a hobby for me. I roast my own beans, and have collected a respectable amount of knowledge about how to make a barista-quality cup at home. I've owned a Capresso Infinity 560 for five years, and I purchased this particular model for a gift exchange. It seemed like a perfect fit: an excellent price for a burr grinder, within the price range of our gift exchange, and it's a brand I am familiar and happy with. This model, though, is not nearly as good as the 560, in my opinion, because of the quality of the grind. It grinds much more evenly than a blade, to be sure, but it creates a lot of "dust" as well. If you really want to get a quality grinder for a great price, I'd recommend the 560 instead. It's usually around $80, but it's well worth the extra money over the lifespan of the product. That being said, if you simply cannot afford that extra money and must choose between this and a blade grinder, this one is clearly the better choice.

I've owned cheap blade grinders in the past, and this is my first burr grinder. I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews of different grinders. I was originally looking for something in the $50-$75 range, but this grinder had better reviews than most of the other grinders in the higher price ranges. I am very happy with this grinder. I have had it for about a week now and have made fresh ground coffee every morning and have had no problems whatsoever.

It is not very noisy (not even half as noisy as a blender). I also really like the ability to store beans in the dish on top. I usually make a full 12 cup pot of coffee, so the first time I ground with this machine I set the little lever on the front to 12. It actually ground more coffee than what I would normally use for a full pot, and I like my coffee strong too. I changed the lever to 6, and that is the perfect amount of fresh ground coffee to make a full 12 cup pot. I also put the "fineness" dial on 4.5, which works really well for my Cuisinart drip coffee maker.

After reading tons of reviews of different grinders, and after buying this one and using it for a week, I can honestly say that at $33, this is probably one of the best coffee grinders you will find at that price point. Highly recommended.

**UPDATE 5-22-2012**
After owning this grinder for a month now and using it every day, I have had absolutely zero problems. It works like it should every single time. Very happy with this purchase.

I just bought this grinder as a Christmas present for my wife. It grinds quickly and well and is fairly quiet - much better than our old blade grinder. The ability to store whole beans in the top dispenser and to store ground coffee in bottom dispenser in the refrigerator is also handy. From what I have considered, it seems to be one of best lower cost burr grinders available.

But as to the "mystery" in my title, actually there are two mysteries:

1) Sometimes when your look for burr grinders on Amazon, this model does not show up. Not sure why, but it might have something to do with the fact that it does not ship directly from Amazon. The supplier names have also changed within the past 2 weeks.

2) It is not listed as a model on the Capresso web site. I tried to register it on the site but cannot, since it is not in their drop-down list of products. In fact, the Capresso web site has no mention of this model (or anything looking like it) in their catalog of grinders, registration page, downloadable instruction manuals, or replacement parts page. Update: the Capresso company e-mailed me that they make this particular model only for Costco, though apparently others get them to resell on Amazon. That still does not seem like a good excuse for Capresso not listing this model on their web site.

The grinder generally works quite well (grinds evenly and as finely as one might want), though the whole beans sometimes get jammed in the top of the grinder. It's easy to clear, but then throws off the measurement of how many cups-worth of beans you wanted to grind. It seems to help if the beans are dried out a bit first, rather than dumped right into the grinder from the freezer when still moist.

This is not a conical burr grinder. It is a flat burr grinder & so does not grind as evenly. But it does do a very acceptable job of grinding for a drip coffee maker or pour over coffee. I feel it's a good value for everyday coffee making & much better than any blade grinder. I bought this for my weekend house because I didn't want something expensive & I don't have an espresso machine or French press there.
*I have included photos of the flat burrs & the grinding chamber.

To figure out the proper grind for my taste buds & daily coffee making method (pour over), I threw a handful of white rice in to the hopper (no need to waste coffee beans!), set the grind at 5.5 (a guess) & the amount at 6 (just to make sure it kept running so all the rice would go through). This turns out to be the right grind for me. It was quite even & had very little dust. If I was brewing in a drip coffee maker, I think 4 would be the right grind setting for my taste. You'll need to grind & taste to find your setting. There are guidelines for fineness settings in the instruction manual. The choices go from 1 to 9 with 9 being the most coarse & 1, the finest.

I use the pour over method for making my daily brew. I use cold, filtered water, a Melitta paper filter, manual drip coffee filter & brew directly into my stainless carafe. I heat the water to boiling, wait 30 seconds, pour a few tablespoons over the grounds to saturate & plump up the beans & then slowly flood the grounds with the rest of the water. I usually brew about 1.4L of coffee on the weekend. So I use 82.25 grams of coffee beans. I measured the beans on a scale, put them in the hopper & tried various amounts of time to get an approximation so I don't have to measure my beans every time.
