The Capresso Burr Grinder comes in either black or white. It is a bit larger than the typical blade grinder. It has a collection bin which can also be used as a storage container for the ground coffee. Typically, we just grind enough for the day and leave it in the bin.
The grinding process is timer-based. Just select the number of tablespoon with the front slider and hit the grind button. Sometimes we found some left over beans in the bowl because we too generous with our "scooping."
The grind setting is on the left side of the machine. The lower the number on the dial, the finer grind. The grinder was louder than we had expected, but it was tolerable. The coffee acquired a static charge and some did cling to the side of the bin.
The above photos show grinds of 9, 5, and 2. We determined that setting 2 was best for use with our version of the EspressoPRO.
BTW...if per chance you forget to attach the collection bin before hitting the "grind" button, expect a fine spray pattern such as this one :-)
We made a few short clips of the roasting, burr grinding, and brewing process so you can get an idea of the sound and times associated with the steps. We are working on how to share the smell, but the best way is to just go buy one and experience the aroma for yourself.
