A Practical Burr Grinder
The Capresso 560.01 is built for the everyday coffee drinker. It’s most notable feature is the commercial grade conical burrs which ensure that every cup of coffee will taste equally good. The burrs are powered by a 100 watt motor, and there are 16 grind setting to choose from. The bean hopper holds up to 8.5 ounces of coffee beans, whereas 4 ounces for the grounds one. There’s also a built in timer and the overall design allows for easy cleaning.
Elegance Behind The Design
The Capresso 560.01 has Swiss manufactured burrs that exhibit precision. It does this via computers that allows the burr grinders to cut at angles and shapes to an accuracy of 0.1mm. The grinding mechanism itself is relatively slow at less than 450rpm’s. The slow grind is a key characteristic that’s required for grounds to keep the rich aroma of the original coffee beans. And what’s more the design is sophisticated enough to result in a very low noise output.
The Extra Features
This coffee grinder comes with a few extra features for added value. For example, you get a cleaning brush which makes cleaning the outside and inside of the grinder a straightforward job. There’s also a measuring scoop which can come in handy when you want to make a precise amount of coffee. The 8.5oz coffee bean container is bigger than most other options on the market. Finally, the outside of the machine is made out of zinc. The result is durability, and an elegant look.
High Quality Grind Mechanism
The quality of the grind is second to none. The burrs themselves are Swiss manufactured and have a precision of 0.1mm. You don’t have to worry about the grounds coming out uneven with the Capresso 560.01 no matter what grind setting you choose – even the finer ones needed to make espressos.
Easy To Clean
The cleaning brush and removable parts design of the Infinity Burr Grinder makes it a model that’s easy to clean. This is ideal for those of you who lead busy lives and don’t have the patience to spend more than a few minutes doing maintenance tasks.
Number Of Grind Settings
The Capresso Infinity could benefit from a few more grind settings so that there are more taste options available. Those who aren’t picky might not care too much about the lack of grind settings, but the more sophisticated coffee drinker may want to have more options on offer.
For a coffee grinder that is durable and produces coffee grounds to high levels of precision the Capresso 560.01 is a great choice. The high quality burr grinding mechanism will preserve the aroma of the coffee bean every single time. The only drawback is that it has a relatively low 16 grind settings. However, the grind settings are spaced out to provide a range of tastes – Turkish fine all the way to coarse. For a well-rounded coffee grinder that is reasonably priced the Capresso Infinity is a great choice.
