Detailed Commentary

I recenlty moved up from a blade grinder to this burr grinder. I chose the Capresso Infinity #565, beacause of all of the reviews from here as well as several other websites. The difference in flavor in my morning brew was astounding. Anyone thinking about taking the plunge, I would highly encourage them to so, without any hesitation.  I also considered the Maestro Solis Plus and the Kitchenaid brand of burr grinders. The reason I chose the Capresso was primarily because of price - I got a great deal from Amazon - got the #565  for about the same price as I found #560 everywhere else -$100, and this being my first foray into the burr grinder world, I didn't want to go "crazy". the biggest issue I have had thus far is cleaning, thankfully, I found a post that helped me alleviate some of the mess associated with cleaning this unit. The main issue centers around the fact that there is always some residue left over after each grind - which leads to the stale grounds pushed out into the next batch. I now tilt the grinder forward after all of the beans have passed through the hopper and gently tap all the sides of the outer surface - this pushes all of the residual in to the collector and leaves very little behind. In either case, I am very please with the Capresso Infinity and recommend it to anyone moving up from a blade style grinder.

Buying Experience

Amazon.com as always was excellent. The price was great as was the shipping time - I received it two days after I placed the order.
