Will this work for espresso?
A shopper on Sep 8, 2014
Best Answer: No, this Capresso Grinder #559 is not capable of grinding fine enough or consistently sized particles for espresso. I would suggest the Capresso Infinity or Baratza Encore at minimum for pressurized portafilters. If you have a non pressurized portafilter, then you would need to move further up to the Baratza Virtuoso or the Baratza Preciso.

A shopper on Aug 3, 2015

Dials are for appearance only!Review by Makes a mess every time!
Regardless of dial-setting, this machine provides chards of ground coffee beans; cannot get a fine-level grind! Also, unable to get enough ground beans for more than one strong cup of coffee regardless of setting for number-of-cups. Finally, it is impossible to use this machine without having a mess within a 10-inch-radius of the machine because while grinding, the machine spews out residual beans on table top; not to mention the amount of static in the container when trying to pour the tablespoon + beans out of the container. I wish I would have read the reviews in order to use my money toward purchase of a better brand and model. (Posted on 4/30/2016)
NOT A CONICAL BURR GRINDER! Save your money.Review by K the Chemist
This is NOT a conical burr grinder. It is a flat plate burr grinder. I don't know why the specs say conical burr.

There is no anti-static coating, so the coffee grounds fly everywhere when you pull out the catch container after grinding.

The grind is not uniform, so super-fine grounds build up in the catch container.

It is admittedly better than a blade grinder, so if you're really pinched for cash, I guess you could get this. Personally, I really wish I had spent the extra money on a proper conical burr grinder. (Posted on 6/6/2014)

Great GrinderReview by BeautyMaven
I bought this for grinding various seeds (i.e. flax seed, oats, etc) and it works like a charm. Highly recommend. (Posted on 4/23/2013)
fine piece of equipmentReview by kitty
I really appreciated the pros and cons section that Seattle Coffee Geear provides when you are trying to compare the grinders. The only "con" was said to be that there was no antistatic feature in the ground coffee receptacle, but I have found the static to be very slight and easily taken care of. Excellent product!
