Capresso's Infinity Conical Burr Grinder is designed with heavy steel conical burr grinders, a small footprint and as much control as you need to make the perfect grind. This is an ideal addition to your home coffee making setup.

Conical burr grinders use steel burrs which allow them to grind effectively while rotating relatively slowly, usually below 500 rpm, reducing frictional heating of the ground coffee, thus preserving maximum aroma. Also conical burr grinders are quieter and less likely to clog than disk grinders.

How the Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder Works

  • The timer can be set between 5 and 60 seconds. When grinding in the finest position, less coffee per second will pass through the grinder than when grinding in the coarsest setting. Therefore the numbers around the timer do not represent number of cups but serve as a reminder for your personal setting. Remember, you can always stop the grinding process by simply pushing the on/off button.

Features & Functionality of the Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder

  • Vertical Grinder - The conical grinder burrs are designed to operate with a low RPM (rotations per minute) so that your beans maintain the flavor profile designed by your roaster.
  • Grind Options - The Capresso grinder has separate On/Off buttons, so you can stop grinding or use for pulse grinding. Or, use the electronic timer to grind from 5 to 60 seconds with the press of a button.
  • Capacity - The removable bean hopper holds 8.8 ounces of beans and outputs 4 ounces of grounds. The easy-to-read settings on the side show you how position the plates to achieve the perfect grind for your ideal type of coffee.
  • Easy to Clean: The upper conical grinder is removable - you can and should remove it from the machine for occasional cleaning. The design of the system of the Capresso makes that easier than most other grinders.
  • Safe and Quiet - With a quiet motor and a safety-locking system, this grinder does the job as safely and quietly as possible.
  • Includes - Cleaning Brush and Measuring Scoop.
  • Colors - Available in Black, Brushed Stainless, or Silver Chrome
Pros
  • Design - These new grinders have a great look to them
  • Value - This is a sturdy grinder with basic functionality

Cons
  • Grind - This is not an espresso grinder, the grind is not fine enough for that although you could use it if you are using a pressurized portafilter with your machine
  • Clingy - No anti-static coating, so the grounds jump around

A shopper asked: OK, getting a bit specific, I'm an amateur, and I use a Bialetti stovetop (6 cup) for my coffee. I currently use a blade grinder, but want to go to a burr. When you say fine grind for expresso, I'm not using the 'lock and load' pressurized coffemaker like the baristas, but does the Bialetti fall into this category, and should I keep looking? I'm not going to spend $400 on a burr grinder for my stovetop, but I'd go ~$100 if I can get the right grind setting. Oct 6, 2013

Zachary L: Hi, I bought the Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder recently and am really happy with it. I haven't tried the finest grind settings on it (I'm not an espresso person) but even on the medium/fine setting it grinds much finer than I need for a high-end drip machine. I would imagine that the grinder would do a great job with an espresso grind unless you're extremely picky. I will say that the grind setting I use (medium/fine) does not give an exactly consistent grind, but you have to look really really closely to see the inconsistencies. This grinder certainly is light years better than any blade grinder I've tried. I've been using it for about 7 months, multiple times per day, and it works like new. In my non-expert opinion, you can't do much better in the $100 range for a grinder. Oct 7, 2013

David R: I have owned the Infinity for a couple of months now. For the price (especially through SCG), it should pair well with your Bialetti. I bought a DeLohngi EC 155 for $85 and could not see spending more than $100 on a burr grinder. The Infinity is not perfect, but has enough consistency to pull good shots. It's also far more convenient than the blade grinder I had. The Infinity is capable actually of grinding in its upper range too fine a powder for my EC 155, so I feel confident in recommending it to you as the best low cost but quality burr grinder in its price.

JOHN S: If you're using a moca pot I think you need the finer grind settings. Do your own taste test by trying to see if you're gaining any flavor with a fine bur ground moca pot vs. moca pot using your blade ground beans (which is very fine).
If you find there's a difference, maybe buy a good hand operated bur grinder if it consistently grinds the various ground sizes. The next bur grinder I buy will probably be hand operated for portability and easier to fully empty straggling grounds inside the bur area after each use.

Clint D: This grinder will suit your needs, i use it for my Aero press as well as my siphon pot.
Unlike blade grinders, this has a grind size setting, you can go from very fine to pretty coarse. Cleanup is fairly easy as well and doesn't have to be done every single use.
I was iffy as well before ordering, but after a bunch of research i decided to give it a go.
I'm very happy with this grinder so far, I've been using it a few times a week for a couple months now.

P Evans asked: I use my Capresso Infinity to grind for my La Pavoni Europiccola, for which I set the size to second to finest (one click from far left). The chute into the container that catches the grinds regularly clogs, requiring a messy cleaning. Am I asking too much of this machine? What might be a better choice? (Usually, I buy French or Italian roast beans from various companies, including Starbucks.)

Also to note: when cleaning, never ever ever set the static side of the burr assembly upside down—it will fit and lock into place, and is quite a pain to remove. It’s almost unbelievable that it was designed such that this could happen.

TIA for the help!

Teri KStaff: Unfortunately I would not recommend using a Capresso Infinity Grinder with your La Pavoni machine, as we have found that it cannot grind quite as fine or consistently as is necessary for the La Pavoni machines. I might suggest upgrading to the Baratza Virtuoso or Preciso for a grinder that is less prone to clogging and more suitable for fine espresso grinding. Hope this helps!

I bought this grinder in 2009 along with the capresso semi-automatic espresso machine. It worked fine well after the espresso machine gave up! I upgraded my machine to Sylvia and the grinder hummed along happily. But this week, it has gotten cranky - however I adjust the grind, Sylvia is dumping watery coffee. Of course, Miss Sylvia is known to be equally cranky, so I'm not sure if the problem is with the grinder or the machine!

In general, it seems that any machine doesn't last more than 5 years these days so might have to upgrade my grinder.

And yes - the static is an issue but I've learned to deal with it by grinding a few minutes ahead of time and using a small spoon to dump out the coffee. Really not as big an issue as some people make it out to be

Sorry I bought this. Returned it after one use. The static, as many others have noted, is a giant pain in the neck. When removing the container that holds the ground coffee, I noticed that not only was the coffee flying all over the counter, it was also sticking to the grinder itself. The other annoying feature was the time on the top. My old Cuisinart burr grinder does a better job. Don't bother.

I saw all sorts of reviews for this grinder which was moderately priced and fairly quiet. That is true those are the positive attributes. For the record my father is using the same grinder and he grinds each day. He is percolator stove top maker. Mostly he uses eight o clock. He has never had a issue at all. As for me the static is horrible, makes a mess, the machine does not like grinding certain beans. Starbucks christmas blend was a choking point ( which I did not think was that oily at all ). The reviews mention the static and it is a big pain. I wish I had spent more on the grinder just as another Seatlecoffeegear review suggested. The machine is still working fine after 2 months but it is not the grinder to use when just want a cup of coffee, it could take a while.

good starter grinder for home

This grinder does the job fairly well for home brewing. I use it for fine grind (aeropress, pourover). One thing I would change to it would be a simple on/off switch along with the timer mechanism. I pre-measure my beans and dump them in the hopper so I have to guess at how much time the grind needs, you figure this out over time. It would also be nice if the hopper was a smoke color so the beans get less light. The static isn't terrible, it's worse with dark roasts which I don't get much. All in all, I am pleased with my grinder. It's way better than a blade grinder.

I tried several grinders and sent them back. This, with the metal body, was the first that ground coffee from coarse for French press, through very fine for Turkish. The twist timer is a little imprecise, but ok with practice. The only (BIG) problem is static. When you remove the ground coffee holder, grounds fly everywhere. I solved the problem by lining the ground coffee container with foil that folds up over the edge and touches the metal body. This discharges the static and no more flyaway coffee. I sent this suggestion to the mfg. Got a form letter in reply saying that coffee mess was part of the coffee making experience. Clearly they had not really read the letter

I agree with Pete. The static charge is OUTRAGEOUS! Consequently, I have to grind ahead of time to keep the grinds from flying out of the cup!

Relatively quiet compared to other grinders I have owned. Grind seems reasonably good for home use - no, it is not the best ever, but it works well enough for decent espresso.

Cannot speak to durability as mine is still pretty new.

This is an OK grinder, but it stopped working just 5 mos after we got it. It was a huge upgrade over our $20 Black & Decker grinder, which we've now reverted to until we figure out what to buy next. I'm not sure if the quality of this model is poor, overall, or if we just got a lemon.

If you want to grind for a french press coffee maker - this works fine but it simply does not work AT ALL for espresso grind. Their prior model, heavy metal worked just fine, but the current model is cheap plastic. I hate this grinder and it just wasted my time!

We love the consistent grind but the static problem outweighs the good. When we pull the plastic coffee catch bin out coffee jumps everywhere - all over the machine and my hand. Reading reviews online it turns out that this is a common complaint.

It held up quite well to service as a grinder for a coffee booth at a festival. No problems with jamming, which is quite an essential feature when you are running a business! Energy efficient (ran off of batteries with an inverter). Disadvantages: slow to clean if switching between two types of coffee (I had one gourmet blend that was more expensive so I was only grinding this occasionally). Not sure if any other grinder would be better. For the price, very happy with this grinder.

Pros:
Commercial Grade

Great unit for the price. Had Black and Decker cheap helical grinder (paid 20 box at canadian tire 5 years ago....) and because I just bought my first espresso machine, a Breville 800ESXL and just want to get the best possible taste for small price, I choose this one.

This is a great grinder, easy to clean, works well overall.

Never remove the containter with coffee in it...you will have a 15min intense beans search everywhere in the kitchen :-)

The small brush for cleaning could be improved.

Sorry for my english.

Thanks scg !

It's a good step-up from blade grinders. Not too noisy. I give it a shake and a tap on the counter to get some of the grounds out. For the price, a good buy. Just don't expect commercial machine results and you'll be satisfied.
