Quiet operation. Some coffee drinkers think a burr grinder yields better coffee, as it precisely cuts the beans instead of crushing them. 8.8 oz. container.

The combination of commercial-grade burrs, and low RPM motor make for excellent grinds with pour over and drip coffee makers, and while the espresso grind won’t blow anyone away, most people using this capresso espresso maker find it good enough.

The conical burr on the top can be removed easily whenever you want to clean it. The coffee container underneath is tight enough to negate any chances of an accidental spill. In fact, you can fill it near capacity, and yet there shall be no spills or leakages.

Conical burr grinder which is rare in this price range.Deals with 8.5 ounces of beans at a time so great for coffee lovers with busy lives.Keep up to 4 ounces of grinds in the nifty transparent container.16 grind settings in 4 categories makes your life easier.Hard-hitting grinder but still lightweight at just 8 pounds

Like all other devices, the Capresso 560.01 Infinity Burr Grinder is not without cons, the Capresso Infinity Grinder comes with 16 grind settings which are lesser as compared to the competitors like Baratza Encore and Preciso. But it can’t be said as a complete cons as the brand is providing the best of settings normally required in daily use.
- Fried Coffee
Labeled a commercial-grade grinder but best for home use.Cheap plastic parts detract from build quality and raise questions about durability
- Fourth Estate Coffee
Not as simple to use,Limited warranty, Expensive

From The Manufacturer

For maximum aroma and flavor retention nothing beats the Infinity Conical Burr Grinder series. Computer controlled special grinding heads cut the angles and shapes of the steel burrs to within 0.1 mm precision (1/250 of one inch). Burrs are produced as matched pairs and are hand assembled in Switzerland for precise fit. The multiple gear motor produces the slowest grinding action (< 450 rpm) resulting in highest precision grinding from Turkish fine to percolator coarse. Lowest noise conical burr grinder.

An Overview On Coffee Grinders

Review Melt Fun Fact

It may seem like perfectly grinding coffee beans is a modern convenience. But that’s not the case. In fact, coffee grinders have a long and curious past.

The very first coffee grinders were primitive. Ancient coffee lovers had to use stones to grind their coffee beans. It wasn’t until the 15th century, that people began using the spice grinder instead of stones. They could grind coffee much finer than rocky predecessors. It sufficed for a couple more centuries before people got inventive.

In the late 17th century, Nicholas Book invented the earliest coffee mill.

 

More coffee mill variations soon followed and by the end of the 19th century, most homes in Europe and the u.s. had a coffee grinder. By that time, the technology was essentially perfected.
