Most people have sadly grown up on a diet of instant coffee. There’s nothing wrong with that, but once you’ve tasted freshly ground coffee it is very hard to turn back.
You may think that having your own coffee grinder at home is expensive. The truth is that just about anyone can afford to grind their own beans, which means a much more enjoyable coffee experience for more people.
Capresso refers to this grinder as “commercial grade”, but of course commercial grinders cost way, way more than this. However, since you’re only going to be serving one household, rather than hundreds of customers per day, it’s unlikely their exaggerations will be put to the test. This grinder uses steel conical burrs, which are sturdy enough and designed to grind the coffee with a minimum loss of flavor.
The Capresso looks pretty good. It wouldn’t look out of place in most modern kitchens or in a professional coffee shop. The plastic is clear ABS and the total capacity is 8.8 ounces. That’s a LOT of coffee for just one or two people.
This is a pretty flexible grinder and it can be set to grind your beans to suit a variety of coffee preparation styles. From fine Turkish style coffee, to coarse French Press methods. You can make that and all the grinds in between. If you or someone you know is ready to step up to the next level of coffee, then this is a fantastic place to start.
