Update 1: The beans used in attached images are not from grocery store or old beans. They are Redbird Espresso (excellent beans by the way) about 10 days old from roasted date.
Original: I have been using this grinder for close to a year now. I got it right after Gail :) demoed it. There are couple of things going for the grinder but it is not a high quality grinder purely for espresso. I use it with Expobar Office Leva and clean the grinder every week, sometimes less when switching coffee. I will soon be getting Baratza Vario or Rancilio Rocky just for espresso and keep this for Vietnamese Coffee.
I have a feeling that Breville will introduce a new model as soon as people start questioning design flaw in their product, so buy it while the price is good. Since the burr mechanism is same as in costlier Breville Smart Grinder Pro, if you dont need or use the fancy options, this grinder is for you.
1. Good price for what it does consistently. If you know its limitations and use it within its abilities you will be happy.
2. Although body is plastic and weight on lighter side, if you use it to grind for couple of cups of coffee 2-3 times per day you should be good. Even though the body is light, the motor shaft keeps the burrs steady and straight.
3. Timer setting is good for people who need it, but I don’t leave the beans in the hopper and weigh my beans.
4. Since the top burrs have finer settings, this can be used as a workaround to con.1 below. Set the top burr to finest setting, then you can stay above 10 on the overall grinder setting and not have to deal with too much clogging.
5. Hey atleast cleaning does not take long with a paper clip, brush and vacuum at hand. If you are going to be using multiple beans all through the day, just keep a vacuum handy and you don’t have to throw away too much grinds when you are switching beans.
1. Grinding any fine than 10 is impossible as it clogs the machine before it is done with 18gms. Please see my customer images for proof. The reason for clogging is that as you go towards finer settings, the bottom burr rises. This creates gap below the burr when the grinds can accumulate. Since finer grinds tend to clump, and the “teeth” below the burr cannot sweep the grinds out, it kind of compresses the grind more till nothing comes of the chute.
2. Cannot handle darker or oily beans at any espresso range. Stay at Drip or above.
3. If you want to use this grinder for espresso machine that DOES NOT come with pressured portafilter, you have to tamp much harder.
4. Holds on to about 5 grams of grinds inside the machine between grinds. So if you only grind 14-18 gms each time, know that about 30% is stale grind.
Don't think that just because it's labeled "Dose" that you can't use it as a standard grinder and grind into a cup or other container for regular coffee because you can, and that's all I use it for. You can even put the coffee basket directly under it if you slide out the tray. However, I find it easy enough just to use a cup to catch the coffee and pour it into my coffee filter basket.
I tried the Capresso Metal Infinity, yes metal, I didn't like it and returned it. It didn't have nearly the adjustment range and even though it has a metal body, the hopper was plastic and hard to turn when adjusting. The upper burr was mounted in plastic and didn't seem to have the same quality as the Breville.
Reviews rate them both as good entry level grinders, I'd say they got it half right. The Breville far exceeded my expectations and is worth every penny I spent on it.
We've had this grinder for 11 months, and it's been in use about every other day (albeit on a coarser grind setting). The timer seemed gimmicky to me, but it has been a huge asset in daily use. Being able to just let it grind and not have to guess or weigh the grounds is very convenient.
The adjustability in the grind size has also been better than expected. It can go fine enough for Turkish coffee with drier beans (struggles with the oily stuff on its finest settings), which, at the time I was looking around at grinders, it seemed a lot of others couldn't go that fine, or it killed them quickly. We haven't used it for hours and hours grinding at it's finest setting, but the occasional use for that seems fine.
The dark hopper seems to do a good job of keeping the beans fresh for a week or two, the entire unit is not overly staticky, it's super easy to clean, and nothing has broken over the course of 11 months of use. It's quiet enough to use in a house with people sleeping, it's consistent, and it doesn't look bad on a counter. Overall, I've been very pleased with this. Coming from a Capresso, this feels like a real upgrade in every way. Highly recommended.
