Crew Review: Breville Burr Grinder
This entry was posted on November 29, 2009.
While we dig how much metal Breville incorporates into their designs, we don't know how well their functionality will stand up to the test of time and/or someone with more particular tastes. We checked out their burr grinder to see how it compared to other models that we carry, and weren't very impressed with its particle consistency or maximum fineness. In fact, we're pretty sure that even what they call 'Turkish' wouldn't work in most espresso machines -- but may very well work just fine in their machines with a pressurized portafilter basket.
At any rate, we had Gail show us this grinder's ropes and demonstrate how it works.
