OK if you are making drip/press only and don't mind a mess
Positive Product Points
It is cheap and looks OK. I like the timer, it is easy to clean and it IS better than a blade grinder.
Negative Product Points
Messy, messy, messy and noisy. Cannot grind very fine or consistently. Grind collection container is made of very brittle plastic.
This was my first burr grinder and was a huge step up from a blade grinder. However, I recently purchased a commercial espresso machine (Wega) and the grinder was hopelessly out of its league (not a surprise I suppose). Before this occurrence I was happy with the drip coffee it was able to produce and it is easy to clean the burrs.
The main problems with this grinder, assuming you are only using it to make drip or press coffee, are static, noise and the plastic and mess. There is so much static produced that the coffee literally jumps out of the grind container when you remove the lid. The Capresso is also VERY noisy. ALL conversation must stop while grinding coffee. Furthermore, it is a very irritating noise. The grind collection container is made of cheap plastic that is very brittle. After 3 months of use pieces started to break off allowing grinds to escape even more easily than the did before. Finally, coffee grinds escape from every crack and cranny - especially from around the grind adjustment knob.
