Product Description

Color: Black

Amazon.com

This hefty, bullet-shaped grinder stays cool even when the motor runs, so no flavor or aroma is lost, and its jumbo capacity prepares enough beans for a large coffeemaker in one go-round. There is also a see-through plastic lid that lets you see how fine the grind is without opening the grinder.While these are great features, the machine has its drawbacks, too. Though the Capresso claims to have low-noise, it actually seemed a little loud compared to aslightly smaller grinder that didn't have the "cool grind" feature, and it is also a big appliance for smaller adults to get their hands around. In the final analysis, this is a great grinder for those who regularly make extra-large pots of coffee and who can handle an appliance with a little extra heft. --Maria Dolan

Clean up is easy.
M. Classen
It does grind a large amount of beans at a time but the grind is uneven even with stopping the grinder and shaking the beans around.
Samuel James
Our old Capresso lasted many years, finally wore out, so we purchased another because we liked the original so much.

I bought this grinder and just love it. I don't seem to have any of the problems others are having...it isn't messy and my coffee has not stuck to the bottom at all. I love that it is larger, as we like our coffee strong, and with this one, we can grind a larger amount. Someone mentioned it takes up to 30 seconds to grind your coffee....well coffee should be ground for 20-30 seconds anyway for a perfect flavor...I grind it for about 25 seconds in this grinder and it comes out perfect!

This grinder has performed flawlessly. I have had no problems getting whatever grind I desire and I have had no problems with clean up, nor do I find this grinder to be messy. As for longevity, well we will just have to see as it is new. I hope we have a long and continued happy relationship.

Update. 04/30/08 I have now had this dandy little grinder for about 13 months and still am very satisfied with it. I should have noted on my original review that I don't make espresso at home. At that time I used a drip and a percolator and the grinder did very well for both. I now have a french press and it works fine for that also. I am very well satisfied. However folks keep telling me to get a burr grinder, that especially with a french press I will really note a difference in the coffee. I am not sure I want to spend so much money on something that really doesn't make all that much difference especially since I have been so pleased with this particular product.

I like this Capresso grinder because it has more capacity than others I have used and it grinds my coffee beans to an even texture consistently. The trick is to not overheat expensive coffee beans during the grinding process and this unit does it well. This is the best blade grinder I have found.

When my Krups coffee grinder finally expired after several years of faithful service, I decided to order the Capresso because of its larger capacity and vaunted "cool grind." I wish I had ordered the Krups instead. The Capresso takes much longer to grind the coffee, and the design ensures that no matter how careful you are, you will spill ground coffee all over your counter. In the time since I bought it another reviewer has reported that his or her Capresso broke within six months. Do not buy this model!

I bought the chrome version of this machine about a month ago and my experiences with it are excellent. The machine stays cool, grinds about 1/2 pound of coffee beans at a time, and the results are consistently good. It is a neat device, with the cord wrapping around the machine for easy storage. Cleaning requires a small brush so that grinds do not stay at the bottom, and they come right out. I could not be happier with this purchase, but then again, I use it only for what it was made to do, grind beans!

I had been saving for the Capresso 560 BURR grinder for awhile, and when I finally had enough $$ to blow on a grinder, I thought about it: I'm no aficionado and I only grind 4 tbsp of beans every day--is it really worth it to get a massive burr grinder taking up precious counter space in my teeny tiny kitchen? Nope. Do I even need a grinder at all? Yup, because ANY kind of grinder (almost) is better than pre-grinding a 2.5-lb bag of decent French Roast at the store. Yuck! So I drove down to my nearest Bed Bath & Beyond, with my 20%-off coupon in hand, and snagged one of these for around $16. Cool! What a deal! And it looks perfect sitting next to my Magic Bullet, aka Margarita Machine!

Static electricity will cause not-quite-fine-enough coffee to stick to the sidewalls of the interior, but a little tap and a shake in between pulses gets them down in there where the blades are. I was grinding at the Turkish setting at the store, and the consistency looks pretty close to me. It's so fine that it even cakes up at the bottom and I have to scrape it off with a butter knife. But what's really cool is that I can turn the Cool Grind upside down, dump all the grounds into the lid, then dump it straight into my French Press, without having to worry about clearing out grounds that may have gotten stuck in the burr mechanism (which this one doesn't have). Cleanup is easy as can be: wipe the inside with a damp paper towel, then a dry one, and you're done! Try doing THAT with a burr grinder every morning.

It's taking me a little time to adjust to smooth, fresh tasting coffee without the rancid, acidic, harsh taste of beans pre-ground at the store, but I think I'll get the hang of it. Plus, after saving about $80, I have some money left over for a SIPHON/VACUUM coffeemaker, which won't be just fun to watch, but will REALLY spoil me rotten!

I switched to the Capresso from a Braun grinder from the dawn of time. My Braun was very messy and did not grind the beans evenly. The Capresso is a big improvement. The beans are ground evenly. The grounds come out sort of fluffy because a lot of air circulates inside. I don't think it is messy at all. But I also don't fill it to the top. I put in about 1/2 cup of beans per pot of coffee, and it fills the Capresso about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way up. So when I take off the lid, all the grounds are down inside the chamber. With my Braun, I had to fill it to the top to get the right amount of ground coffee, and then it was messy when I took off the lid. I roast my own coffee, and I like that there is a little static in the lid. The chaff from the beans rises to the top and sticks there, but the coffee grounds do not. Best of all, the Capresso really improved the taste of my coffee. I had been grinding these beans that I was hating, but using them up because I bought a pound of them. After switching to the Capresso grinder in the middle of the bag, the coffee actually came out good. So it wasn't the beans so much as my old grinder. I didn't expect such an improvement, and for only $20. I was worried I was going to have to buy an expensive burr grinder to get good coffee. I'm glad I tried this first.
