Capresso Coffee Grinder ReviewsCapresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinders
If you are looking for a fairly good conical burr coffee grinder, arguably one of the best low-end grinders around, and you don’t want to spend $200+ for a high-end commercial grade grinder, this Capresso burr coffee grinder may be the right choice.
It is a high-quality low-end conical bur coffee mil for a relatively low price.
The Capresso 100-watt conical burr grinder features 16 different grind settings. As a conical burr mill, it works slower and heats less the coffee avoiding a burned quality.
The bean hopper has the capacity to hold 8-1/2 ounces of coffee beans. The coffeegrinder has a built-in timer.
Perhaps the biggest problem with this conical bur grinder is the cleaning process. It may take an extra effort and a couple of minutes of your time to clean the grinder, the hopper (you may have to tap it to have all the grounds come out) and other parts of the grinder where a tablespoon or so or coffee may be stuck, and the included brush may be too small to clean it conveniently (you can buy a different brush for a dollar or 2 from a local store).
The upper parts of the grinder are easy to remove and clean, but grounds may end up deep in other compartments of the machine, in the chambers and chute. Not only can it be a hassle to clean them all out, but you may waste some amount of coffee that gets in there, and the coffee that remains inside may go stale and have an effect on your successively ground coffee.
Another problem may be static electricity, that is quite a common problem with coffee grinders. Grounds may cling to the container and when you open it up they may jump out and fly all around.
The Capresso grinder also has a cheap-looking plastic bean hopper instead of glass.
The grounds container may be loose and move out of its place during the grind as a result of the vibrating grinder, so grounds may come out and wind up on your counter.
All this said, the coffee grinder does a good job grinding the coffee. It has 16 grind setting, 4 settings for each of the four different coarse and fine grind levels, and it grinds well.
As can be expected from a good quality conical burr coffee grinder, it grinds the coffee evenly. The machine is relatively small, not taking up much counter space, and it does not make a terribly loud noise.
Although the Capresso grinder has some settings for grinding also to fine and very fine levels, and can theoretically be used also for grinding for espresso, it may not be ideal for this purpose. A high-end conical bur grinder for coffees that require finer grinds would rather be suggested.
Tip: go for the Black version of this Capresso coffee bur grinder, which is only $89 (on Amazon’s site, at the time of this writing).
