The unit grinds coffee perfectly, but it is super messy due to static electricity build up. The coffee literally flies out when you open the coffee drawer. Not only do you waste coffee, but you'll have constant cleanup after grinding.
This is a good coffee grinder the only problem with it is that when you grind coffee the container that the grinds go into does not have any kind of catch and does not stay in the slot due to the vibration of the grinder. It slides out and the grinds get all over the front of the grinder due to the static when grinding. You need to stand there and hold the cup in until it finishes grinding.
The grinder is nice, but the mess created by the static is really awful, and takes a long time to clean up. The opening is too small to hold the filter directly under it (which would help avoid the static), and it doesn't have a tube that directs the feed of the grounds so they just fly around. I'd like to return it, but can't seem to find one without this static problem. I really can't understand how manufacturers design things so poorly. It's not like this is the first coffee grinder ever built!
I've been buying on line for years, and generally you get value for your money. I sent back a Cuisinart burr grinder and selected the Capresso, which costs $30 more. The Capresso is much more uniform in grind, and is much less messy--no coffee dust spewing forth when you take the collection cup out of the machine. But it still doesn't produce a coarse grind on the coarsest setting. It's coarser than the Cuisinart, and it's coarser than my friends' blade grinders, but the grains are about half the diameter of the coarse grind of the machine at the supermarket. I'll stick with it and adapt my coffee-making, but I know a simple machine can make coarse-ground coffee. I just can't find the make that did it back when my dad was grinding coffee (yes, it was electric, Virginia, and also noisy, but the coffee was ground to perfection.)
I recommend this product with the following caveat.
It does a nice job grinding coffee. But, there are a couple of design issues. The most irritating being the catch hoppers inability to stay in place during a grind cycle. The hopper vibrates itself out during the process, and you end up with coffee being deposited behind the hopper, inside the grinder. It's a mess. The fix I came up with, was to put some electrical tape on the bottom of the hopper (increases tension between the hopper and the spring tab on the mill). At just short of $100, I shouldn't have to come up with any fixes (thus the poor value rating).
The other design issue has to do with the timer. This grinder is replacing a 10 year old Braun Automatic Coffee Mill. If you were making 10 cups, you dialed up 10 cups. I assumed (wrongly, my fault) that this would be the same with the Capresso Mill. You will have to do some experimenting on your own to come up with your own prefferences (I came up with 8 for 10 cups).
Overall, it's a nice product. It is more quiet than the old Braun (a plus). And, now that I know how long to set the timer, it does a very nice, consistent job.
I hope this helps.
I have purchased multiple Capresso products before and they tend to work well for a few months but then some flaw in their construction (usually the result of Capresso's saving money by using cheap or flimsy components) results in a need to purchase a replacement part or in the inability of the unit to operate (the latter usually after the warranty period). So, I give it an overall rating of "3"; it works fine now (after less than a week of use), but I have my fingers crossed. Check back with me in 18 months to see what I really think of it. I bought this grinder simply because the discounted, "special" price (around 40% off full retail) was too good to pass up and worth the investment even if it conks out in a year or so. NEVER pay full price for a Capresso product; you will be disappointed in the long run.
I have never made such good coffee since I got the Capresso burr grinder, it's not too big on the counter, it's nice looking, the only fault and I feel it's a big one, is the cleaning I have to do after each time I use it, the coffee seems to stay in the machine even when I use the little brush. I wish they would make it easier to clean aside from that bad point, it's a wonderful machine.
The infinity grinder is better than other more economical grinders. I don't regret the purchase. I think it's a good value and an enormous improvement over the melitta burr grinder that I used before it. However, now that I've learned more about coffee, I would invest in a better (more expensive) if I were to purchase a grinder now.
How nice to grind coffee and not rattle the entire house! Very consistent grind ...easy to clean. I wasn't sure if the difference between conical grind and blade grind was more than hype. But it is better. Faster, smoother, more consistent and certainly quieter!
I do wish Capresso would change it's timer mechanism to reflect how many cups are being ground. I understand it would be a best guess ... but the timer isn't particularly accurate for consistently judging how much coffee to make.
Product is recommended!
For the price, this is an excellent procuct. I was going to spend $200.00 for a Kitchen Aid but the things that made it better were not worth the extra money (glass coffee holder & quieter).
This machine works very well, the main mechanism is sturdy, however cleaning is a bit ackward, but this has to be expected for this type of machine.
This is my first conical burr grinder, but it is great relative the
So far so good- less than one month of use. It grinds well with enough grind adjustment to keep even the somewhat picky happy and does so with relatively little noise and little mess. Great bang for your buck.
Greatly improved coffee flavor with burr grinder vs blade grinder.
Easy to use. Have found I can use a slightly finer setting than recommended and use less coffee beans and still get great flavor and bold taste.
The grind is consistent.
I really like the fact that it's MUCH quieter than our old blade grinder, but I bought it because burr grinders are advertised as providing an even grind, and while the amount of sediment in our espresso has been dramatically reduced, the sediment in our french press and drip brewers seem unaffected. I am still experimenting with the 16 grind settings, but I don't expect to see much improvement. If I knew then what I know now, considering a blade grinder costs $100 less, I'd stick with the blade grinder.
The only complaint is that the grind container tends to shimmy out of its slot a bit while the grinder is grinding due to vibration. But it's not a too big of a problem since it does not come out so far that the grinds spill all over the place. This grinder is compact, quiet and produces very consistent grinds. Good for home use. I brew a 10-cup pot almost every day.
Does a much better job than our old Cuisinart burr grinder. Quieter and easier to clean too. It is much more expensive however. But I think it is worth the price.
This was a gift for my husband. He is very picky and tends to find every little flaw and fault with products. So far he has been very happy with this grinder. It works well, the grind is consistent, it isn't messy like the big Kitchenaid burr grinder.
Good grinder - it's a first burr grinder I have had, so can't compare to other ones of this kind, but I am very happy with the product. Quiet, easy to setup.
This grinder is fast and quiet, and the grind is very even. The burrs look like they'll last forever. However, a fair bit of coffee remains in the grinding chamber after the grinding is done, so there's a bit of clean-up involved.
Another point, which has nothing to do with the grinder itself, is that the web site listed this as a special price at $139, marked down from something like $169. Jura-Capresso's catalog, included in the package, lists the regular price as $139.

Coffee tastes best when made with freshly ground beans, but we know it's not always a reality to be able to grind your beans every morning- especially if people in the house are still trying to sleep! Instead, try grinding beans once or twice a week in the evening, then storing in the fridge in an airtight container.
