Banish the blade, embrace the burr: Capresso Infinity

Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder


About a month ago, you were introduced to the Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder. In that article, I shared my preliminary impression of this coffee grinding machine which was that it is pretty darn sweet. At this point, I can tell you that it is more than merely sweet and why.

As with the Capresso Coffee a la Carte, the Infinity Grinder looks and feels like a precision machine. Yes, it is primarily made out of ABS plastic, but the bits that do all the work are finely honed steel and it is those pieces that are the most important. Additionally, the actual grinder housing is made from die-cast zinc, so under all that ABS shrouding, there is real metal where it counts. Also, since plastic is an insulator, and since this grinder is so meticulously assembled, it is one of the quietest grinders, blade or burr, that I have ever had the pleasure of using.

The multi-gear motor that spins the burr does so at less than 450 rpm which also helps keep things quiet, but this also generates less heat, which is better for the beans, and less static electricity, which means less mess when the ground coffee bin is slipped out of its housing. Capresso makes all of these claims in their product brochure, and I can attest to their accuracy. Such truth in advertising tells me Capresso has nothing to hide and a lot to brag about.

Yes, but how well does it work? Perfectly, really. Whether using a Bialetti Moka Express (fine), a French Press (coarse), or a regular drip coffee maker (medium), the Infinity does it right every time. So far, though, I have found that when the Infinity is paired with Capresso’s absolutely excellent Coffee a la Carte coffee maker, the cup of joe produced is seriously flavorful, rich, and silky on the tongue.
