A shopper asked: So I'm going back and forth between this Saeco burr grinder and the capresso infinity. Currently I'm using a Mr. Coffee burr grinder and I'm not 100% satisfied with the results. Anyways my current setup is a Krups XP601050 with a pressurized portafilter basket. Of the two grinders which one would be optimal for my setup? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Aug 9, 2013

Steven N: Hi "A Shopper."

I have been very pleased with the Saeco grinder after 30 years with a Braun burr grinder (which still works, but is quite noisy compared to current offerings).

Both of these grinders use flat burrs, but the Saeco provides a more even and consistent grind than the Braun (also a flat burr design), and produces only minimal dust when compared to the Braun.

There are enough grind settings from fine to coarse on the Saeco to select for drip brewers, french press, and pump based espresso machines (I've not used the more expensive commercial types).

If you choose the Saeco (and I suppose any brand), I would suggest becoming familiar with the grind settings, as it seems different grinders will produce different levels of fineness or coarseness on what might appear to be similar settings.

I have not used the Capresso grinder, so am unable to comment on its performance.

It seems there are two types of burr grinders, conical and flat, with aficionados claiming the conical burr is superior--albeit potentially more problematic as per its refinement.

For the money--and as you have no doubt discovered you can spend a lot of it when putting together a "coffee system," the Saeco has impressed me as a high value product and worthy of a "maximum star" award (as per the number of stars available in the website's review section).

I hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,

Steven N (Denver, CO)

Jackson W: First off, I guess it would help if you could explain why you're not satisfied with the Mr. Coffee burr grinder. Are the grinds not fine enough or inconsistent or is the machine noisy or difficult to use?

I've had this Saeco Burr Grinder for about a week and I'm still trying to dial in the grind and amount. I only use it once a day for a morning cup of coffee and don't feel like wasting coffee to experiment. Also note that I use an Aerobie Aeropress and have not yet tried it with my Espresso machine. What I can say is that my coffee is much richer and more flavorful than the blade grinder I had been using previously.

So far and for my purposes, this Saeco Grinder has been great. It's small and stylish enough to remain on the counter, it's simple to use and clean, and the grounds are fine and consistent enough for the Aeropress. I've read in other reviews that it's not fine enough for espresso nor is it coarse enough for French Press. Unfortunately I haven't tried either (yet), but will someday.

Sorry, I'm afraid my response won't necessarily help with your decision. For what it's worth, I also considered the Capresso Infinity and chose the Saeco based on reviews.

Noel T: I can't fully speak to your question. All I can say is that I previously bought a Capresso and was extremely dissatisfied with it. I have been using the Saeco for a week and love it so far. I had assumed a double was the new standard single, so I have to double the number of cups I'm grinding for, but otherwise no complaints. Aug 14, 2013

Susan H: I love my Saeco burr grinder for my drip coffee maker. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and the dials are responsive. But even on its finest setting, it is not good for espresso. I have a Saeco Aroma. Aug 21, 2013

A shopper asked: I just bought a Delonghi EC702 and I realized the grinder I have is not appropriate for espresso (hamilton beach $20 blade grinder). Trying to find an inexpensive alternative to get course grinds for a french press (which we enjoy) and the espresso grind needed to get right ground for the delonghi. Would you recommend this machine? I am currently going back and forth between the Capresso Infinity which has mixed reviews and this one. May 11, 2013

Robert B: My basic answer is yes. I've only had it for a few weeks, but i'm quite satisfied. It have a good range of grinds, is convenient because the hopper is non-electrostatic, you can choose the quantity to grind or let it auto-stop when the hopper is full. I've have very good espresso and drip coffee as well. The grind is very uniform, in stark contrast to blade grinders. It seems well built, but i've only had it a short time. I've had a Saeco espresso maker (beans to brew) for several years and it's operating as well as the day it arrived. May 17, 2013

WAYNE D: I have retired my blade grinder for spices and absolutely love the saeco burr grinder.
it has a timer in addition to a grind setting. nice sized hopper and to change grinds just rotate the knob on the side. The finest grind is to powdery for my espresso machine and the larger much to big for any coffee i make. great variation in grind settings.
For the price I feel it is a great grinder and would be surprised if you did not feel the same.

Bev N: We too use the French press daily and espresso more at the weekend. I love this little grinder, it does the job perfectly and for a great price. When grinding for the French press you may notice a little powder at the end of the grind. I simply mix this in and have not had any problem with bits in the cup. Settings used are finest for espresso and coarsest for French. I would definitely recommend. May 14, 2013

Rishiraj D: I just upgraded from a Capresso infinity to a Rocky rancilio. The Capresso is a nice grinder, but does not produce a fine or consistent enough grind for espresso. Of course it costs nearly three times as much. The Breville or Baratza gridners are cheaper, and produce fine enough grinds for espresso. The Rocky rancilio is certainly worth the money if you care about espresso quality. Jun 20, 2013

DeAngelo C asked: I' have decided that I do not think I'm ready for espresso yet, so I am getting a Bialleti Express Moka Pot. Does this grind fine and consistent enough for a Moka Pot? Feb 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: This Saeco Burr Grinder is not the best choice for particle consistency, and though it would do an okay job for your Moka pot, other options like a Hario hand grinder or the Capresso Infinity Grinder would be better options. Feb 20, 2014

Pam B asked: I generally do either french press or a moka pot. Will this one work well for this or should I upgrade to the Baratza Encore? One day I'll get the Rocky but I have other priorities right now. Aug 16, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: I would upgrade to the Encore if you need coarser grinds for French Press, as this Saeco Burr grinder does not grind quite as coarse as the Encore. This Saeco Burr grinder does not have quite the range of course and fine that the Encore does. Aug 16, 2013

Stellar little grinder. I was very impressed with this product for the price! This grinder produces a nice, very uniform grind for both fine and coarse grinds. Another nice thing is it is very compact and fits nicely in any corner or nook on your kitchen counter, very convenient. The burrs are of nice quality as well, however being made out of steel, I recommend grinding in short intervals to prevent heating your beans. Very nice grinder, I work in a coffee shop and work with commercial equipment, and this is the first house hold grinder I have seen that can compare for the price. 5 stars, highly recommend.

Don't waste your money

Please don't waste your money on this machine. Purchased this machine around Easter 2013, loved that it wouldn't take up a lot of valuable counter space. That was the only good thing about it. Took most of Easter weekend to get it to work. When it finally did work, I found I had to gently press the hopper lid for it to grind anything. And forget trying to leave beans in the hopper! Learned to grind just enough beans for whatever amount I needed for whatever coffee brewing method I was using. Got so frustrated with it, I went back to using my Krups blade grinder this was supposed to replace. Decided to try it again this past weekend. It died. Kaput. Fini. Less than a year of using this thing only once or twice a week, and it stopped working. What a waste!

Tremendous value for a fine grind

The grind on this is very fine as drip grinds go, even on the coarsest setting. I would like just a little coarser option.

Also, the hopper could be a bit larger.

The quality of this unit is unbelievable for the price. It feels like it should cost twice as much. The parts click together with a satisfying little snap and it is quieter than our Cuisnart grind and brew.

Before I get to far I must say that I am using this for a drip machine so the grind I am looking for is medium to coarse-medium grind. My machine is a Bunn Velocity, it brews coffee at a uniform temp, in large quantities, quickly. The issue is getting the grind just right so the coffee isn't watery or too bitter (and overflowing all over my counter). That being said, the Saeco grinder set on anything but the several coarsest settings produces a fine moon-dust which will not function very well in the drip machine. My only bit of advice would be to run some small batches to figure a good grind out before trying to grind a whole pot's worth. Also that ultra fine powder might damage the pump in an espresso machine.

Great grinder. Not too noisy. Doesn't get coffee hot. Anti static works really well. Only issue (not for me) is that it is a little finer than expected. Since I only use it for drip, running on medium coarse works good. If I was using it for espresso, would be too fine.

I just needed something for my drip coffee maker. While it does tend to grind on the fine side, it works well and is a great value for the price.

TOO FINE A GRIND

Review by

While this grinder has a wide range of grind settings to choose from, the results (with mine) are fine to dust. The coarsest setting is like the fine from my previous grinder and it chokes my Gaggia espresso maker. I'm afraid I'm going to burn out the pump! I've had several grinders and this is the first that's been too fine on all settings.
It seems to be well constructed and it's quite quiet compared to my previous one. The anti-static system was worth the additional cost.
