Even grind at all levels,little static,and above all,does not jam with oily beans
Negative Product Points
Leaves a bit too many grinds in burr chamber,but not a large problem-just let it run a few extra seconds,and smack it a few times.
My faithful Barrista,after 2 1/2 years,slowly deteriorated,then passed away. I considered getting another,but ended up buying the Infinity,based on the good reviews I found in this forum. I am not sorry. Fairly quiet,but above all,dependable. I turn it on and walk away--that's a pleasant change. It works beautifully for everything from the Krups Mokabrew to French press. I don't do espresso, but in testing the critter out,I noted that I could make a grind almost resembling talcum powder. The grind is always even,with almost no powder. I really have to say,despite bad experiences with other Capresso grinders, (like the 551), that this is a real winner (how did they do that?). At the price,it's a downright miracle.
Superb. Prompt delivery,courteous and knowledgeable salesperson,and arrived in perfect condition.
Three Month Followup
Still working as well as the day it came out of the box. I do find the excess grinds left around the burrs a bit of an irritation,but realize I do grind rather fine,and this could add to the problem. I certainly don't regret buying this machine.
