Capresso offers grinders in all three categories. Click here to see a comparison chart.
Burr Grinders preserve the most aroma
and can grind very fine and very consistent. The intricate design
of the steel burrs allow a high gear reduction to slow down the
grinding speed. The slower the speed the less heat is imparted to
the ground coffee thus preserving maximum amount of aroma.
Because of the wide range of grind settings these grinders are ideal
for all kinds of coffee equipment, Espresso, Drip, Percolators,
French Press. The better Conical Burr Grinders can also grind extra
fine for the preparation of Turkish coffee. Grinding speed is generally
below 500 rpm.

and create a bit more warmth in the coffee (10,000 to 20,000 rpm).
They are the most economical way of getting a consistent grind in
a wide range of applications. They are well suited for most home
pump espresso machines. However they do not grind as fine as Conical

to 30,000 rpm). The ground coffee has larger and smaller particles
and is warmer than ground coffee from burr grinders. Blade grinders
create coffee dust which can clog up sieves in espresso
machines and French presses. These type of grinders are suitable
for drip coffee makers. They also can do a great job for grinding
spices and herbs. They are not recommended for use with pump espresso
