After decades of banshee morning seranades from my 3 generations of Braun burr grinders, I wanted to change tunes. It could wake the dead. It could wake my wife! It was time anyway, since Old faithful #3 was getting near the end. The grinder, that is.
Having looked at several grinders to service our 12-cup morning pot, I knew that I knew nothing about them. The search for information and reviews about grinders led me to CoffeeGeek, where I soaked up the experience of the group. Having learned a bit about which grinders in my price range worked well, were easy to clean and built to last, I went on another grinder fondling spree.
The Capresso Infinity resonated with me. I spent the extra $$ on the metal-bodied version hoping this baby is as well built as it looks and feels, and will last a long time. Haven't tested yet, but maybe the metal body is quieter than the ABS model. It's a joy to use. Quick. Quiet. Better-tasting pots of morning brew, and a zinger stovetop espresso so far. The fun begins . . .
Gripe - the amount of residual grinds left in the burr chamber. Some of that may be my fault for insisting on running oily Peet's beans through it. At least it is easy to clean. By pouring just enough beans for the grind and running it empty, the chamber has fewer grinds left in it.
Sur La Table in Berkeley is a nice kitchen shop, well run and fun to go to. The price for this grinder is the same everywhere!
