Cons
  • Static - Unfortunately the coffee container is not anti-static so you'll find your grounds clinging to the ground coffee container.
  • Loud - This grinder may be upgraded from it's predecessors but it's volume is still louder than most would like.
  • Not So Fine - Even though it claims to grind for espresso, we find that sometimes it doesn't get quite fine enough for even pressurized portafilters.

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.

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)

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)

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!
