The richest and most aromatic coffee can only be made when using fresh ground coffee beans. This burr grinder mills coffee consistently, preserving the bean's natural flavor and aroma. Choose from 2 to 18 brewed cups worth of coffee grounds, select the perfect coarseness and press the start button to begin the grinding cycle. Select the perfect grind consistency, from extra fine for espresso drinks to coarse grounds for a French press. The large, removable bean hopper holds up to half pound (250g) of coffee beans. The grounds bin detaches for easy access while holding up to twelve ounces of coffee grounds. The coarse to fine adjustment is clearly marked on the product. One specific instruction may be to rotate the coarseness setting all the way past the FINE marking until the rotation stops and then rotate back to desired setting.

Boy, I feel way uptown with my new Tru Burr Grinder. Since I am new to the coffee grinding world, I didn’t know one grinder from another. However, I have since learned the difference among the varieties of grinders available on the market today and the prices of them as well (a lot of them are priced way above my meager means!)
I bought some coffee beans not too long ago and had to have a grinder to grind my beans. Not knowing what to buy, I bought a blade grinder. Big mistake! The blade chopped my beans unevenly. This would have been perfect for herbs; but I wanted ground coffee; and it was so messy. However, I did like the smell of the beans being chopped. So I made a cup of coffee with the chopped beans anyway. It wasn’t too bad. Oh, the smell of the coffee filled the house with this wonderful aroma. Looking back, I think I liked the smell more than the cup of coffee. When I saw this grinder being offered, I jumped at the chance to get it. I couldn’t go wrong. It cost the same as my blade grinder and was a step above. So why not give it a try, I said to myself.
This grinder is what is referred to as a flat burr coffee grinder with a circular grinding stone and steel cutters. It has 17precise settings, thus allowing you to customize the grind for your preferred brewing method, from superfine for an expresso to ultra-coarse for a French press. As for myself, I have a drip coffee maker fitted with a basket. Therefore, I use a medium setting. Turns out perfect. Oh my, I just love the smell!
Since I’ve never had a conical grinder, I can’t even begin to compare the two. It is my understanding this type of grinder produces a more uniform grind. I could care less. I like what I have. Thank you very much. I can grind up to a half pound of coffee beans at once, which I have done. The bean hopper which holds the beans to be ground is removable for easy cleaning (you rotate this hopper for the type grind you want. It is clearly marked – I can see the markings without my glasses on). It is suggested that you rotate the bean hopper from the coarse setting all the way past the fine marking until you cannot turn it any more, then you rotate it back to your desired setting. Easy peasy.
So far, I haven’t had a problem with static electricity that causes granules to stick to the lid. Maybe it’s because I always give the grind holder a gentle tap on the counter top prior to opening (I got in the habit of doing this when using my blade grinder). In any case, I don’t have a big mess when grinding coffee like I did before. No spillage at all. I do like that! It’s made of plastic so that means it’s lightweight and the removable parts are easy to clean with mild soapy water. I honestly believe it’s quieter during operation than the blade grinder I was using, too. Another plus! And the price is perfect.
Do you know the difference between “gourmet coffee” and canned coffee? Commercially canned coffee comes from a blend of up to a dozen or more beans which are usually lower in quality. Whereas your gourmet coffee comes from high quality Arabica coffee beans with distinctive flavor profiles.
The roast of the coffee refers to the length of time the coffee beans spend in the roaster. The shorter (lighter) the roast, the milder the flavor. Also, when storing your coffee (whether it’s beans or ground), store in an air tight container. Do not store coffe ground in the can they came in. Air leaks around the seal, diminishing the quality of the coffee. Remember, air and moisture loss can destroy coffee. Store ground coffee in a specially made container for that purpose only or a zip lock bag, squeezing the air out as you use the coffee. Store in the refrigerator. The best way to store your coffee beans is by putting them in a zip lock freezer bag and squeezing out all the air and putting them in the freezer until needed. Grinding them as you need them makes for a superior cup of coffee. The freezer will keep them for up to three months and the refrigerator will keep them for about a month.

As other reviews here on Amazon have stated this actually seems to be an impeller grinder and not a true "burr grinder" which is what is recommended. I would have never really know the difference as this was my first grinder. It did reasonably well, the grind was never totally uniform and it was LOUD, like cover your ears loud. Again, not knowing any better as this was my first grinder, I assumed that was normal. Eventually the blades died after daily use just grinding coffee beans, nothing out of the ordinary.
Disappointed I went on some coffee review websites and got the Baratza Encore Encore Coffee Grinder by Baratza, and while 3 times the price of the TRU, it is miles ahead and what I should have gotten in the first place to save myself the money and trouble. The Encore is much quieter and provides a nice uniform grinder to the coffee making for a much better cup.
Don't waste your money on the TRU, get a true "entry level" grinder for about $100 like the Encore is you don't want to drop the $400+ on a pro machine.
I just moved to a new state and didn't have access to my normal coffee systems or my normal baristas and couldn't bring myself to hit up Starbucks for my coffee.
So, I bought a budget-priced burr grinder. The Tru turned out to be way better than I expected. It produces a very consistent grind, is easy to clean, and is pretty well made. The burrs are easily accessed and don't overheat burning the grinds or beans.
The hopper seals relatively well, so beans stored in the hopper remain just as fresh as in a canister or in the bag.
Some people complain that the grinds don't get fine enough for espresso. I don't brew espresso so I can't comment. But the coarse grinds for my French Press are perfect.
