Review: Capresso Infinity Burr Grinder

After 3 years, our Cusinart CBM-18 finally bit the dust and stopped working. It was way past the warranty, so time to buy a new one.

First, I tried one of the cheaper models. The one I tried was the Mr. Coffee automatic burr grinder. It worked fine, but it was noisy as heck! So I ended up ordering the Capresso Infinity Burr Grinder. The marketing literature claims that the stainless version is the quietest grinder in the industry, so I bought the stainless version.

Well, it's quiet for sure! The noise is no longer deafening, and the timer seems to work. The grind is also consistent and fine, which is what I expect from a conical bur grinder. But the best feature is that the grind collection basket is sanely designed, making it easy to pour the grounds into an aeropress without spilling grounds all over the place.

The only improvement I can think of for this grinder would be to have a way to slot an aeropress right into the middle so I can avoid having to pour grounds at all. Recommended.
