Not fine enough for my machine,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Capresso 560.01 Infinity Burr Grinder, Black (Kitchen)
I have the Saeco Aroma espresso machine and this grinder just doesn't cut it for me. I used to use a cheap blade grinder, and while the grinds were not consistent, at least I was able to get it fine enough for my machine. Maybe mine was calibrated wrong, because even on the finest setting, it is still a little too course for my espresso. It works fine for other systems like french press or drip coffee.
It also gets clogged up fairly quickly and needs a cleaning more often that I want to give it one. Lastly, if you put the portafilter directly under the stream of grinds (versus the plastic container), it gets messy. This listed feature is not so much of a feature as a later discovered cool thing that is sorta possible.
I still gave it 3 stars because it is affordable and works fine for all but espresso or finer ground coffee beans. Also, it isn't nearly as big as I imagined.
