There are 2 types of coffee grinders: blade grinders and burr grinders. Most inexpensive grinders use a metal blade to chop the beans. You can control the fineness by how long you allow the grinder to run. The problem with this kind of grinder is that the coffee grounds can be uneven in size and that leads to inconsistent brew quality.
The Capresso Infinity is a burr grinder. Burr grinders crush the beans between a moving grinding wheel and a non-moving surface. The positioning on the burr is what regulates the ground size and this usually allows for a more consistent grind.
The Capresso Infinity burr grinder is a conical burr grinder. There are also wheel burr grinders but the best grinders you can get are the conical burr grinders as the burr spins slower and that makes them quieter and less messy. You can even use a conical burr grinder for oily or flavoured coffees and they will not clog.
If the first grinding setting on this Capresso Infinity is extra fine and 16 is coarse, then 4 and 5 are ideal for espressos. A medium-dark roast will do better at 4, and setting 13 works great with the Bodum Columbia press. The ability to adjust the grind size is a great feature. There is a great range of sizes all the way from Turkish to French press coarse.
The Capresso Infinity has an advanced conical burr design made of steel that we normally find only on commercial grinders. This elegant design slows down the gears and reduces the amount of friction and heat to preserve the flavor and aroma of the coffee.
The Capresso Infinity burr grinder also has a built-in timer that sets the grind for anywhere between 5 and 60 seconds and you can walk away without having to constantly press a button to continue the grinding process. With this machine, you can drink the espresso and French-pressed coffee straight, black.
The Capresso Infinity conical burr grinder uses a gear reduction mechanism where the high-speed motor is slowed down to less than 450 rpm by a set of gears. The low speed reduces the heat that builds up during the grinding. This means that it creates less static and the coffee is not gonna lose any flavour.
Being a conical burr grinder, this machine produces consistent and precise grinds every time. And to brew flavorful espresso beverages, grinds consistent in shape and size must be used so that the water can evenly and equally extract the flavor out of the grind.
The Capresso Infinity features tough cone-shaped steel burrs. The conical burrs rotate at a speed of 420 rpm. The slow-speed capability helps grind the beans better and increases consistency of the powder. The durable plastic Bean Hopper can hold up to 8 ounces of coffee beans.
The front dial on the Capresso Infinity burr grinder is easy to operate and the time control feature allows the machine to stop after a preset time period, anywhere from 5 to 60 seconds. This unit gives you a choice of 16 setting attachments for various types of ground coffee.
