Detailed Commentary

You generally get what you pay for, no? This really does apply to the mid/low cost burr grinders. They're not the heavy weights that sit astride high end espresso rigs (such as Rocky & Slyvia) nor do they need to be operated with a well developed sense of intuition as one needs with blade devices.
As a drip and French press coffee person (  having long ago decided that espresso beyond the stove top variety required the equipment and skill of a capable barista) , I'm interested in grinding at the coarse end of the spectrum. The various Krups, Cuisinart, and Delonghi models all look the part, but fail to deliver or last very long. After a year or so, most of these guys are ready for the old grinders' home.

I agree with the first reviewer that the grind is generally on the fine side...........and that static electric "dust" is kept to a reasonable minimum. I tend to set the dial for the coarse setting and get reasonable results within that grind category. Had I my druthers I would have purchased a Bodum or Saeco grinder, but was not willing at the time to fork over the extra dollars...penny-wise and pound foolish perhaps...but for now, that's the case. And you know? that's not all bad. Unless one is a demanding espresso maker, I don't really seethe grind as that crucial...yes, I know there will be a legion of dissenters on this point.

Buying Experience

Unconscious

Three Month Followup

This grinder is wonderful. I've had no episodes of clogging, power drain , etc. I suppose if one uses modest amounts of beans oer grind, the Capresso can/will render consistently good  service.

This grinder represents good value for coffee devotees who need a consistent, reliable machine at a relatively modest cost.

One Year Followup

This modestly priced burr grinder continues to soldier on. Frankly, I am pretty pleased with this appliance. If one doesn't require the exacting grind finesse of the considerably more expensive burr units...specifically, a fine gradation of espresso grinds, the Capresso does a wonderful job of producing a broad range of grinds.........electric drip, Chemex, French Press.....and it does a good job at the espresso end of the spectrum as well.
