The Capresso burr grinder has received many great reviews depending on the model you choose.
The majority of buyers prefer the stainless steel housing model, but for those who use it once a day or less, the ABS model is reported to have satisfactory performance levels.
It comes in two colours – black or stainless.
The Capresso Burr Grinder is manufactured by Jura, a well-known and respected coffee maker and accessories manufacturer.

The Capresso Burr Grinder comes in three models – 2 are plastic, and 1 is stainless steel.
The burr grinders slow the speed of the grind and prevent the machine from burning the grounds and overheating the machine.
For safety, the Capresso burr grinder will not operate unless the lid is secured. Additionally, the Capresso burr grinder sensor and select mechanisms will not operate unless beans are actually in the grinder.
This grinder has 16 settings that allow for a grind best suited to your particular coffee type.
This machine has been designed for home use with the grinding burrs found in commercial-type machines.

• Inability to replace burrs when dull
Customers who reviewed the Capresso burr grinder, whether satisfied or dissatisfied with their purchase, agreed that it is extremely difficult to assemble after cleaning properly; that cleaning after each use is necessary but annoying at best; and that the inability to replace the burrs when they become dull is expensive since the machine must be replaced.

However, if you desire a machine that will last for several years, you may wish to choose another grinder.
