Satisfy a roomful of guests calling for caffeine with the Jura-Capresso Impressa S9, the luxury automobile of home espresso centers. Both beautiful and powerful, the machine grinds, tamps, and brews delicious shots of espresso in 50 seconds and steams or froths milk without a wait. It's built with a dual 1250-watt ThermoBlock heating system, a forceful 18-bar power pump, and a distinctive emphasis on choice. You can steam milk manually or automatically, make drinks with or without foam, and grind for light or dark roasts. You can tailor your drinks' strength (5 to 16 g of coffee), size (1/2 to 16 ounces), and temperature (regular or high). You can even adjust the machine for water hardness, raise and lower the coffee spout, and regulate the separate hot water spigot.

Backing these options is a professional-grade, solid steel conical burr grinder with six settings and an aroma-saving design. A pre-infusion cycle conditions grounds for maximum flavor and the CLARIS water filter removes impurities for improved taste. The S9 also includes an illuminated coffee area, cup-heating deck, separate funnel for pre-ground coffee, and automatic indicators on the water tank, grounds hopper, and filter cartridge. The bean reservoir holds 10 ounces--enough for 40 shots--and the water tank holds 96 ounces. The unit also features auto shut-off, auto-on, self-rinse, and self-cleaning. The programmable control panel uses a two-line display with simple instructions in seven languages.

With its dual-tone bronze finish and chrome accents, the Impressa S9 is undoubtedly a looker. It is also designed to fit under kitchen cabinets, measuring 14 by 14 by 15-1/4 inches with a retractable power cord. Jura-Capresso includes an instructional booklet, video, and CD-ROM, plus a full one-year warranty for home use and a six-month one for offices. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars At last: the coffee achiever's dream machine!
Setting up the Jura was simple, taking about 10 minutes. After adjusting the grind setting and quantity of ground coffee per cup, we had flawless espresso shots in less than 30 seconds each, with the creamiest, most flavorful crema. The espresso non-drinkers in the house can have their "regular" coffee by pressing the "Special coffee" button, which dispenses up to 16 ounces of coffee at a time. Great for the big "go-cup". I set the Jura to power on at 5 am, and trust me, at that time of the morning I am in no shape to grind beans, measure coffee and fill water tanks. Now, all that's history. All I do is press a single button to run the rinse cycle, press a button for either a single or double shot, and in no time, I get the most flavorful, richest espresso I have ever had. We bought our machine at a local retailer, where we were told that they can't keep the machines in stock. I totally understand why.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best of the best, BMW of Espresso Machines
If there is such a thing as the BMW 750 of coffee machines, this is it! A beautifully enginered machine that produces professional results every time. I have had earlier versions of this flawless coffee maker, but this really delivers better coffee than most coffee stores. Cappuccino, Latte, Double Espresso is produced perfectly. Others in our family use it to produce hot water for tea, soup mixes, cocoa, but one may preprogram this for several personal choices of coffee brewing and it comes out perfect every time. I really like this machine!

5-0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome
If you like all types of coffee and complete ease of use, you will be thrilled with this machine. It has been & is used a lot! It tells you exactly what to do and when to do it in order to keep in it top condition. I thought my husband was nuts when he spent so much money for a coffee maker for my birthday, but after 3 years of almost continual use, I can't imagine using anything else. Everything about it is easy, easy, easy. The coffee is hot & consistently great tasting, it is fast, and the Capresso machine is super easy to clean. Friends come over just for the coffee. Whether you need one cup or two, whether you use beans, ground coffee, use frothed milk, and/or steam, whether you use a large cup & your husband uses a smaller one, the Capresso machine easily adjusts with each cup. Minor issue -- I'm not in love with the manual. It's not hard to use, it's just not great. I think it could be laid out a tad better. The video that came with our Capresso made up for that. It's the perfect coffee center for anyone who is very discriminating in their coffee taste.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great coffee - Be aware of long-term maintenance costs
I purchased this machine's predecessor, the Jura S90, about 4 years ago. Since no one's owned an S9 for that long, it's hard to say for certain what the maintenance costs for the S9 will be, but I thought those considering buying it might appreciate knowing that it will likely require a certain amount of annual or biennial maintenance.

The S90 has one part that needs replacing after approximately every 2000 shots, which in my house means about once every 18 months. There are also seals and similar parts that again will need service periodically. This machine appears to be mechanically very similar to the S90, so it will likely have similar maintenance characteristics.

Over the last 4 years, I've had the machine serviced twice by Jura, and once by a local repairman. The cost of repairs was around two hundred dollars including parts each time... My front panel switches are also starting to misbehave, though, so the next repair may be more expensive.

This machine costs enough (and is good enough) to be worth repairing, but if you're expecting a machine to last the ages without any repairs, you'll likely be disappointed.

I can't really fault the machine for needing periodic maintenance, though. You could get a commercial machine with heavy-duty parts for 2-3 times the price, and that would need periodic maintenance, too (though the parts would last longer). Just be aware that by buying a high end machine, you've moved out of the "disposable" machine range and into the "pay to fix it" range. "Never needs fixing" doesn't exist.

As to the quality of the coffee, I've tried this one, and the quality is the best I've tasted from a super-automatic.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful Hint
A couple of previous reviews complained about blockages that quickly developed in their machines. I had the same problem after less than a month of use, where the brewed coffee would drip out very slowly, threatening to cease altogether. I told my wife she should return the machine, but she called Jura's customer service number, which is printed on the cover of the instruction booklet. The representative gave her a fix which is not mentioned in the troubleshooting section of the manual. It's difficult to describe, but it involves removing the grounds tray, poking a finger up through the chute and finding damp grounds that are stuck by a screen there. They can be wiped away with a paper towel and that should clear up the problem.
Otherwise, I recommend reading fhimas88888888's review for realistic advice, especially about the lifespan of a machine. This is my second super-automatic espresso machine, as a Saeco awaits repairs before becoming an office machine for my wife. They make very good coffee and espresso with relative ease and convenience. They're also great conversation pieces, although by now I find it tedious to demonstrate the machine for awed guests. If you love espresso, lattes, etc., the price of a super-automatic machine is worth it, although you can find one for less than half the cost of this Jura. I give the machine four stars because I wouldn't want to live without it, but I'm withholding a fifth star because I suspect competing machines are virtually as good. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

A stylish grinder for the serious coffee buff, this Cuisinart Supreme Grind automatic burr mill provides plenty of options and good results in an attractive and tidy structure. This makes it a great appliance for houses where coffee is a steady dietary staple and preferences vary from espresso to French drip. Outfitted with a heavy-duty motor, the machine has 18 grind settings ranging from fine to extra-coarse, which are controlled by a clearly marked, pleasantly clicking dial. Rotate the hopper to personal preference, and the machine does the rest, using burr plates for a highly uniform grind that protects bean oils and releases more flavor. Automatic operation in this grinder covers quantity as well--simply set the amount slide control anywhere from 4 to 18 cups. The grinder shuts off when the desired level is reached. Transfer of ready grounds to a coffee pot or espresso group is quick and tidy, because the grind chamber slides out with its clever lid in place.

Smart and elegant, the grinder has brushed stainless steel housing and black accents in durable plastic. The hopper, hopper lid, grinding burr, and grind chamber all remove easily for cleanup, and a safety feature keeps the grinder from operating without the hopper and chamber in place. Standing 6-3/4 by 9-3/4 by 5 inches, the unit has built-in power cord storage at its base. Cuisinart includes a coffee scoop/cleaning brush in one and covers the machine with an 18-month warranty.--Emily Bedard ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good machine
This is a fine machine. It does a good job of grinding beans, it does so with a minimum of fuss, it's clean, and it's not too loud. There are only two drawbacks: First, it tends to produce some powdered coffee with every grind. This is inevitable with any grinder; but when you grind in small batches it's more noticeable. (Grinding a half pound of beans at a time will minimize the difficulty, but it sort of obviates the purpose of having a home grinder.) Second, as mentioned in another review, there are four or five tablespoons' worth of beans inside the grinding mechanism when the hopper appears empty: it does make it difficult to change quickly from one group of beans to another. In all, it's much better than a blade grinder, at a very reasonable price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice, functional, minimal problems
Got this burr grinder and really couldn't be happier with its looks, performance, and durability.
Pros:
1. Big hopper
2. Completely customizable -- grind settings coarse to fine and cups to make
3. The fine ground setting really does produce fine grounds...or at least as fine as needed for espresso. I know some people would like coffee dust, but not me
4. Relatively quick grinding time
5. Automatic stop...press the button and do something else, then come back

Cons: (minor ones)

1. The scoop/brush accessory that was included, broke within a week. Actually, just the scoop. Snapped right off. But I don't need a scoop, I need the brush to clean the machine. So no biggie
2. Kinda loud (but most burr grinders are so just keep that in mind)
3. Slides around a bit when handling it. Maybe heavy rubber stoppers needed?
4. Lid doesn't latch closed to the hopper. Just don't turn it over with coffee beans inside like I did. Ha

5-0 out of 5 stars Great!!!!! get the best for less with DBM-8 Cuisinart
I was a bit leary for I have gone thru two Capresso burr grinders in the last 3 years and was contemplating spending over $100+ for a good grinder that would last or so I thought until I gave the Cuisinart a chance. It is hands down the best, its excellent grinding options are true and coffee grinds going everywhere is non existant and clean up is a breeze and it is actually quieter than my old Capresso. The sturdy constuction can rival any higher priced model. Save your money and get the best for less with the Cuisinart DBM-8

2-0 out of 5 stars High Volume, Low Value
This grinder was given to me as a gift to accompany an espresso machine, but unfortunately I will be returning it. I've found that even on the finest grind setting, the results are much too coarse and uneven to brew proper espresso. Furthermore, this grinder is LOUD; the first time I ran it I thought the steel burrs were grinding themselves together.

Other problems: The minimum setting is for 4 cups of coffee, which is far too much for a shot (or even a double shot) of espresso. And a good deal of grounds (about 2 cups worth) ends up stuck inside the machine, so to get freshly ground coffee you really first have to grind 2 cups and empty the bin, then grind what you need. This is a waste of coffee. And if you forget to put the plastic lid on the hopper when you slide it into place, grinds will fly everywhere, and there's no way to stop the grinding or put the lid into place short of unplugging the machine from the wall!! This is a serious design flaw.

Anyhow, for making large amounts of drip coffee this grinder might decently serve the purpose, but otherwise I'd look elsewhere.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great Machine! - changed review!!
I wanted a coffee grinder to go with my new Cuisinart coffee maker. It was between this burr grider and the normal blade grinder that Cuisinart offers. I decided to go with this grinder after my mother had rave reviews about her own grinder. This grinder looks great on my countertop. It is beautiful and makes wonderful ground coffee. I love how you can put an entire bag of beans into the holder and it just grinds the amount of beans that you want. That feature is one of the reasons I decided to buy this grinder also. My only con to it, and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is the volume of this little gadget. But don't get me wrong, I KNOW grinders will GRIND. But, I am a college student and live with a sleep-loving college roommate. And the noise that the grinder makes is a little bothersome to sleeping roommates or family members. All I can do is say "Sorry" and enjoy my wonderful, freshly ground coffee! Great machine! Great purchase!

Update: With no warning what-so-ever, my grinder stopped working!!! AFTER LLESS THAN 3 MONTHS OF HAVING IT!!!! No murmur of the motor, no loud crashing noise, nothing! Just stopped working leave me stranded with coffee beans and no way of grinding them....I'm not a happy customer!! ... Read more

For grinding larger quantities of coffee beans for a coffee-drinking crowd, Capresso’s commercial-grade Infinity grinder handles 8-1/2 ounces of beans at a time. Sixteen different settings--four each in the four categories of extra fine, fine, regular, and coarse--let you adjust the grind to the specific blend of coffee and method of brewing. The finest setting is ideal for preparing Turkish coffee, which is a rare feature to find in a grinder. A built-in timer sets the grind for anywhere between 5 and 60 seconds so you can walk away without having to constantly press a button to continue the grinding process. The Infinity has an advanced conical burr design made of steel that is usually only found on commercial grinders. This burr design slows down the gears and reduces the amount of friction and heat to preserve coffee’s flavor and aroma. The coffee container holds up to 4 ounces of grounds and remains sealed during grinding. For safety, the bean container also needs to be locked into place for the Infinity to operate. Also, fo easy cleaning, the bean container and upper burr lift off so you can clean the grinding chamber with the included brush and wipe down the and heavy-duty zinc die-cast housing. Capresso covers this burr grinder under a one-year limited warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars For the coffee gourmet
If you are serious about the quality of the coffee you drink, then you know that the beans must be fresh-ground right before brewing. The beans must also be uniformly ground to prevent over- or underextraction of coffee oils during the brewing process. A burr grinder, as opposed to a blade grinder, achieves a uniform grind since the beans only pass through its burrs once. This Capresso grinder has commercial-grade conical burrs that reduce the generation of heat which can ruin the flavor of the coffee. I like the fact that the bean container holds a generous half pounds of beans, so you can fill it and forget it for morning after morning of perfect coffee. The 16 grind settings allow grinds for every coffeemaker and blend. Cleaning the unit is a breeze. The top burr is easily removable, and the unit can then be cleaned with the included brush. The grinder operation is quiet. If I have any complaint, it is that the timer, marked from 1 to 10, is hard to correlate with grind time and the resultant amount of ground coffee. Although the fineness of the grind makes grind times vary, the enclosed booklet, which has tips for use, should have included some guidelines for timer/grind settings/yield to minimize the guesswork. I recommend this grinder for the coffee gourmet.

Large enough to grind up to 2-1/2 ounces of coffee beans (enough for 12 cups), this powerful grinder ensures that freshly ground coffee is quickly available, even for big coffeemakers in the office. The details are what make this grinder exceptional: The lid is transparent for monitoring the grind, and has two down-pointing ribs to guide beans toward the blades for even grinding. The design of the stainless-steel blades, combined with the 150-watt motor, means beans can be ground quickly without overheating and spoiling the coffee's taste. For safety, the grinder will not work unless the lid is securely in place and locked down. Finally, the power cord wraps around the grinder's bottom for neat storage. Clad in elegant black , the grinder carries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Speedily and Lasts a Long Time!
I've had my little grinder for more than 6 years now. I use it for grinding nuts (I'm not a coffee drinker) and I'm always amazed that it grinds everything so quickly and neatly. It was so easy to use that I even let my 5 year old help the last time I needed to grind almonds. The only thing is that it's hard to get every bit of ground stuff out... there's always a little bit of grounds left. I suppose I could get it out with a dental pick or a Q-tip or something, but a regular cleaning doesn't get it all. Other than that, it works great!

5-0 out of 5 stars Efficient operation and excellent value
My unit has been smoothly grinding coffee beans for over a year, and shows no signs of slowing down. If I had to replace this grinder tomorrow, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the same model again.

Yes, it is loud while it's grinding but the noise never lasts more than about 10 seconds. Often I just pulse it a few times for 2-3 seconds each. It's the smell of fresh coffee, not the sound of the grinder that gets our family out of bed in the morning.

After a year I'm happy to report that the motor isn't evidencing any signs of fatigue, nor do the blades seem to be dulling. I'm not too hard on it though -- it's used less than half a minute every day. It never grinds anything harder than frozen coffee beans. And I never use anything wet or damp to clean the inside. After tapping out all of the freshly ground coffee, I wipe out any residual "coffee dust" with a dry paper towel.

I feel that it's a very efficient coffee grinder, and an excellent value for the price.

2-0 out of 5 stars Broke after less than 5 yrs of low use
Had this one for less than 5 yrs. Used it less than once per month. Motor froze and it no longer works. If you are going to use as a spice grinder, beware that the metal bowl is hard to clean and cannot be put in the dishwasher.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little grinder!
We received this coffee grinder as a gift about 5 years ago, and it's still going strong. It's fairly loud but quite fast: in only a few seconds, you can have aromatic, finely ground coffee, and nary a bean in the mix! It's true that the capacity is small, but I've never found this to be a problem, especially since the best coffee requires freshly ground beans. And although the unit is not dishwasher safe, I've never had a problem with cleanup either, as I just rinse out the plastic cup and use a damp paper towel to wipe out the interior. This inexpensive, easy-to-use tool is a perfect addition to your kitchen!

5-0 out of 5 stars 15 years and still going
This little grinder is GREAT! I got it for a wedding gift 15 years ago. I have used it often and I grind all sorts of specialty coffee beans. BUT this also works GREAT for FLAX seeds! So you can do more than just coffee. I highly recommend THIS grinder. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a couple of coffee lovers
Home roasting is one of the most rewarding activities I've gotten into, and the i-Roast is one of the funnest "toys" I've bought in a long time, though this sophisticated appliance is in no way a toy; I call it that because it's so much fun to use.

The i-Roast roasts about 5 - 6 oz. of green coffee beans at a time. This is a perfect amount for a couple of coffee drinkers who, like me, want to brew their coffee (we make espresso) using fresh roasted beans (within the last 12 - 36 hours) and ground just prior to brewing.

The i-Roast lets you adjust the roasting cycle (11 - 15 min.) to get exactly the roast you like though you would probably be perfectly happy with the medium-dark roast already programmed into it. Honestly, you wouldn't have to mess with the roasting cycle at all, unless you start to feel more curious, adventurous, or are finicky about the subtle taste differences obtained.

Minor negative feature: typically, fluid (air-driven) coffee roasters are inevitably louder while in operation than are the drum-type roasters. Even so, the i-Roast is far less noisy than our blender, which would drive me nuts if I had to run it for 15 minutes. Maybe it's just so much fun to smell that unspeakably attractive aroma (roasting coffee) and to study the beans as they slowly change from yellow-green to dark brown that I haven't paid much attention to the sound of the motor.

A little LED window displays some useful information while the i-Roast is underway (e.g. it tells you what stage of the roasting cycle it's in), but I've found that it's a little hard to read the LED without bending down close by. It would've been nicer if they'd made that a backlit display, but they didn't and it's truly a minor thing.

Roasting coffee beans inevitably generates some smoke, so at some point in your roasting cycle all your household smoke alarms will go off if you try to do this indoors.

5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this grinder!!
How do I love it? Let me count the ways....

First of all, I really love that there's no static cling of grounds since the grinder cup is stainless steel. You should buy it for this alone because that means coffee grounds don't get sprayed around the kitchen while you're trying to get the coffee into your coffeepot! What a novel concept.

Also, I love that you can store whatever cord you don't need inside the base of the grinder. Mine is parked right in front of an outlet and I have quite enough extra cord tangling around on my countertop, thank you very much. Another truly excellent feature.

It's pretty quiet which is great because our young son was always kind of freaked out by our old grinder.

It's big enough that we can just grind every few days and the coffee stays pretty fresh.

And it looks sorta cool, too.

Everyone should buy this grinder! We even like it way more than a fancy burr grinder we bought; that thing made a huge mess, never did grind the coffee right, took up a ton of counter space and broke after we'd had it a month. After we bought this Cuisinart, we took the burr grinder straight to the thrift store & haven't looked back.

5-0 out of 5 stars An ideal grinder, highly recommended
I purchased this grinder after reading reviews here, and found my experience to be true to the other reviewers'. This grinder is incredibly easy to clean (a quick rinse, then wipe dry--takes all of ten seconds) and it doesn't get grounds everywhere--they stay right in the grinding cup.

The grind is uniform and quick, and the unit operates with less noise than many others I've heard. You can see the grinding progress through the clear lid, so you know when you're done. There's also a plastic lid you can use to keep extra grounds for later in the day if you want to pop it on top of the grinding cup. Inside the grinding cup there are measurement lines, so you know how much you're making without having to measure.

I've made from 2 to 14 cups of coffee with this grinder, and it's been fabulous. Very solid and strong--this definitely isn't a cheapy grinder that will fail in a few months of heavy use.

Only potential downside--like all stainless steel, it does show every fingerprint, but that doesn't bother me. I just swipe it with a towel and it cleans up quickly.

I'd recommend this grinder to anyone--I'm very happy with this purchase.

2-0 out of 5 stars Messy, Bulky and takes a little while for a proper grind
After having a Moulinex Grinder that dates from the 60's finally go on the blink-poof in a puff of smoke-after over THIRTY years I decided it was time to replace so a shopping I went. After much consideration and comparison I choose the Cuisinart. I now think I might have done better settling for the less-costly and not as "beautiful" Krupps (a simple grinder). While the Cuisinart does the job-the grind is somewhat inconsistent (ie: finer at bottom-courser at top) Also, because the blades are attached the scoop will NOT fit down there to scoop up coffee (you have to "pour" it out. It also takes about 45 seconds for a proper grind for a full 12 cup pot) My old one only took about 30 seconds and always had a perfect grind-even to the bitter end! While the grinder is very handsome it is just plain TOO BIG. It takes up over five square inches of counter space and measures 8" high. A little big and bulky for a simple coffee grinder. Overall it does a good job but my main complaint with this grinder is the MESS. It is virtually impossible to grind coffee withouit leaving grounds on the counter. So be sure and buy an accompanying sponge to clean up the debris left over from your daily grind.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great - While it lasted...
Purchased two of these grinders last month, one for myself, the other as a gift, but unfortunately the blade assembly began to fail on mine in less than 2 weeks, after processing less than a pound of coffee. Cuisinart customer service said if I return it postage paid, and include an additional $5 to cover return postage to me (The book says $4) they will fix their mistake. I suggested that at the very least they should pay shiping one way, after all, it was their failure, not mine. They said "We make thousands of these every week, they can't all work". As interesting as I found their quality control philosophy to be I still I think they have a lot of nerve expecting the total cost of their product failure to rest on my shoulders. Appearently they disagreed, as they hung up on me without saying goodbye.

Fortunately we purchased through Amazon.com. No problem. Amazon immediately authorized the return, and by policy will even pay the shipping because it's defective. While I appreciate their approach to customer serice I'll pay the postage myself. It's well worth a few bucks to have someone stand behind defective merchandise - particularly when the manufacturer won't.

Quality is free, it's the cost of doing things right the first time. Some producers appearently aren't even interested in getting it right the second time.

5-0 out of 5 stars this is the one to get
great tool, period. quiet easy to use, sturdy, handsome, and, best of all, no mess. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Experience the uniform, precision grind of a burr coffee grinder and you’ll never go back to the blade style. The burrs act in a similar fashion to grindstones, one on top of the other, and the closer they’re set together, the finer the grind. Also, burrs emit less heat than blades, and heat can negatively affect the taste of coffee. Elegant and nicely weighted, this 85-watt, retro-look grinder with rubber feet sits securely on the counter and grinds beans without the slightest hassle. To use, simply put the beans in the top container, twist it to set it at one of eight settings from extra fine to coarse, then turn the timer dial. If you need enough ground coffee for a twelve-cup pot of coffee, that’s exactly how much will be ground. A chart on the lower grind-collecting container specifies how long to set the timer for the amount required. The lower container with its tight-fitting lid pulls off the machine so the ground coffee can be shaken out or kept inside for storage. The top container unscrews for cleaning by hand. Measuring 11-1/2 by 6-1/2 by 4-1/4 when assembled, the grinder stores even more compactly when the two containers are removed. For safety, the grinder will stop or simply not start if parts are not connected properly. Because a short cord is safer, the three-foot cord pulls out of the base to just the length you need, and retracts when a dial on the bottom of the grinder is turned. DeLonghi includes a plastic coffee measuring spoon and warranties the grinder for one year. --Ann Bieri ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great coffee!!
My wife and I would probably be considered coffee addicts; over the years we have refined our appreciation for "Heaven's Brew" to focus on quality rather than quantity. We like a rather strong, dark, rich but non-acidic, non-bitter cup to get our hearts started in the a.m., and to get there we found we had to grind our own. The blade grinders were OK, but you had to be careful or the coffee would be too fine, too coarse or just plain bitter from the heat of the blades. This grinder looked cool, so we decided to try it, and here's what we found:

1.) It's easy to get the perfect, uniform grind every time with the adjustable grind selection from superfine to extra coarse.

2.) The automatic timer (based on how many cups you'd like to brew) is absolutely perfect. If you can count up to 10 or know your ABC's and can turn a dial, you'll master this the first time.

3.) The bean reserve container holds a substantial amount of beans; we fill it twice a week and it stays fresh.

4.) The grounds container - with a graphic showing the suggested grind time per cup, in case you forgot - is easy to remove, easy to clean and seems to minimize the "coffee dust flux" we used to get from our blade grinders. You can seal the grounds container to keep some grounds in it, but we grind fresh every time.

5.) The machine seems bombproof. Good quality materials with no apparent weak parts to break off.

OK, is there anything negative? Well, it's kind of noisy. Not as noisy as a blade grinder, but you definitely know it's in operation. Here's a clue: you have very hard materials (beans and grinding stones) being forced together to the point where the harder material crushes the other. Turns out that might make some noise. The wonderful smell emanating from the process more than makes up for any noise you'll have to bear for a minute or so. Hey ... some days you're the bean, some days you're the burr!

Do yourself a favor and buy this machine. You'll like it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Burr grinder that more or less does the job
The features of this grinder are:

1. Burr grinder creates a consistent grind with less heat than blade grinders
2. 8 settings, from extra fine to coarse
3.Tablespoon timer grinds exactly the amount of coffee needed
4. Removable holder with lid for storage

Burr grinders are supposed to do a better job than blade chopper style grinders in keeping the delicate oils in the coffee grinds. We did find that the grinds are fluffy, indicating some oils must be on the surface. But "coarse to fine" is misleading; this grinds fine and finer. For press pots like the Bodum Chambord that require a very coarse grind, this grinder is not suitable. And the "tablespoon timer" is a bit silly; it's marked in LETTERS not numbers, which is dumb as you want to measure cups of coffee, not recite the alphabet.

However, for the money, if you want a burr grinder with storage of beans above and a cup for grinds, this really is an excellent price-value. It works fine. Just make sure you know whether you need a coarse or fine grind in your coffee machine of choice.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as sturdy as it looks in the pictures.
Made mostly out of lightweight plastic but it grinds well. It does have two fairly minor problems though. One is that static makes the ground coffee stick to the plastic container. Not a big problem but it does make it look a bit unsightly. It also causes grounds to drop on the counter when removing the container. The second could be more serious. The grinder seems to freewheel now and then. I believe the beans are getting jammed in the hopper and not reaching the grinding wheels so it basically is acting like it is empty. I don't know what would happen if it was left doing that for the entire grinding cycle, maybe it would be just fine. The fix is easy, just give the machine a shake. Easy that is if you happened to be standing there and can hear it.

One other small complaint. DeLonghi has decided that there are two sizes of coffee cups in this world, big ones and (gasp!) little ones. Shockingly enough, those big ones take exactly (amazing isn't it?) twice as much coffee as the little ones! So instead of setting the grinding timer for 12 cups you set it for "F" which translates into 12 little cups or 6 big cups. Most of us with more than a 4th grade education (and even some who don't have one) have figured out that if you are using a 16 oz cup, you will not get 12 full cups of coffee out of your Braun 12 cup coffee maker. OK, so I figured out I set it on "F". But when I want to make a partial pot I have to look on their little scale which with 53 year old eyes isn't always easy until I find my reading glasses. I know I could figure it out without looking but most of this is occurring early in the morning when the synapses aren't firing at 100% yet. All pretty silly in my opinion.

Overall though, a good job of grinding. Consistent and it can grind quite fine. Stylish looking. Noisy as dental drill and about as pleasant to listen to in the morning. My first bur grinder. I would give it a qualified recommendation.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good price, yet doesn't do what it says
The good and the bad...

Pros: Good for even espresso and drip grinds. Small, cheap for burr grinder.

Cons: This machine does NOT grind coarse enough for a french press. Do NOT use for this purpose.

The price of this was pretty nice for a burr grinder. I love
the size of it - small, shapely, looks real nice. I suppose it would be a good grinder if you were only doing espresso or drip pot coffee, but for press pot (which is supposed to be the best way these days) it's horrible. Unless you like drinking sludge with your coffee.

The grind is just not course enough. They tell me that if you use a french press, you need to have a very even grind and very coarse. Approximately the size of the coarsest setting on your pepper grinder. As other reviewers have stated, this grind goes from fine to superfine, which is just not varied enough.

I'm having to return this based on the fact that it just doensn't do what it says. It is totally insufficient for the french press. False advertising? You decide.

But if you're wanting a well-designed, decently-priced grinder for espresso or drip pot coffee, then this is a good bet.

However, please look elsewhere if you're looking to make your coffee with a french press. If this is your purpose, don't waste your time and money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Coffee Beans not ground fine enough
This machine does not grind the coffee beans fine enough for our Krups Cappuchino maker, even though we tamp down the powder into the basket as we always did. The result is an extremely weak coffee, which we might as well not bother drinking.

We are very unhappy with our purchase. We used to have a blender with blades and wanted to try out a "burr" grinder. I am considering buying a blade style grinder again.

Amazon's policy says that you need to return the machine "unused" and like new. How is it possible for you to know how well a machine works, without ever using it? I think this is the last time we will buy any applicance online at Amazon. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars ** I OWN THIS * A WORK HORSE **
This is a basic, excellent, sturdy coffee grinder.I have purchased a few fancier ones to see if they do anything better and they don't!! I bang this coffee grinder all over the place on my kitchen cabinets to shake the freshly ground coffee that can sometimes stick to the sides and it still works well... I have had it for 4 yrs.Don't pay more for something that I doubt will do anything more than just grind the coffee.My fancy GE one broke and the others were just nice looking.Braun makes excellent, well constructed products.

2-0 out of 5 stars Do not wash with water, just wipe it
Bought this grinder to grind coffee beans only but I made a mistake by washing only the metal part with water. Of course I did this with power unpluged and I did not put it in the dishwasher nor submerge it in the water.
Well after using for awhile (6 months), the motor freezed so I took it apart and found it got rusted where the motor connects to the blade. I did not read the intruction so I don't know if the instructions mention anything about cleaning this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Old faithful
We have used a Braun grinder like this almost every day for over 15 years, and it works as well as the day we got it. It has not changed much over the years and the new one appears to be identical. You have to gauge the grind texture by the sound of the machine, which takes some practice,(after a couple of grinds, you can't see through the top) but overall, it's great. I'm buying another one for a friend today. The best part is, it's less expensive now than when we bought ours 15 years ago.

4-0 out of 5 stars Grinds?Check.Makes lots of noise?Check.
It's simple.It's small.It can grind enough coffee for a large home pot.

I don't use it very often, but that's because I don't really make coffee that often.It gets the job done, and does it fairly quickly and painlessly.

It's a bit noisy, but I think that's to be expected.After all, you're grinding coffee beans.

I've strictly used this for coffee, not spices.I imagine it would do a fine job on spices as well, but given the smaller size of most spices, you should read a different review where someone has used it for that.However, if you do plan on grinding spices, buy 2.One for spices, one for coffee.

The grinder is a little difficult to clean.It's not submersible, and the blade isn't removable.The top/lid is easy enough to clean (as it is submersible), but for the unit, I shake/tap it out onto a paper towel, and then use a new, damp paper towel to clean it out, and then dry it.

The "not easy, though not quite difficult," clean-up is what makes this 4 out of 5 stars, instead of 5/5.

With 14 grind settings and a precision milling system, this electriccoffee mill grinds coffee beans to any fineness without overheating them andspoiling their full flavor and aroma. Two ranges of grind settings are marked:one for fine grinds suitable for espresso and Turkish-style coffee, and theother for coarser grinds suitable for drip machines, French presses, andpercolators. Selecting a grind requires only a twist of the ring under thecoffee-bean container, which holds 8 ounces of beans and can be removed forcleaning. The ground-coffee container is permanently attached for convenienceand has a rounded bottom to facilitate scooping. There's a timer dial calibratedby the number of cups desired, so the grinder uses only the amount of beansimmediately needed. A measuring spoon (for 1 cup coffee) is included. The millhas cord storage underneath and carries a one-year warranty against defects.--Fred Brack ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Needs antistatic sheets
This grinder made a horrendous mess on the counter when I first used it due to the static on the grounds. However, by wiping everything down with a sheet of bounce and then polishing the streaks off the clear bits with a paper towel, the grounds behaved a lot more civilly. Keep a pastry brush handy though, there will still be grounds tossed around. The timer is mechanical and the grinder turns on as soon as the dial is turned, leaving the grinder unplug doesn't help cause the timer runs as soon as the dial is turned regardless so you can't consistently select a given amount, you pretty much have to give it about 5 seconds on the timer for every coffee measure worth (1 tablespoon) and add 5 so that you have enough depth to actually scoop the coffee out of the receptacle. I bought the unit cause it was priced competitively versus a quality manual knee grinder but I think I might still get a manual just to have more control over the consistency of the grounds (this one does produce some fine powder regardless of setting). They probably should've had a grounded chute on this grinder to neutralize the static before getting to the plastic receptacles. The cleaning blade on the coffee scoop is fairly pointless (no pun intended), use a pastry brush.

4-0 out of 5 stars so far so good
I just purchased this mill to replace another Braun I've happily used for 10 years, and have been amazed that it's lasted so long. The other was a burr grinder as well, so the mess was not an issue. Live with it if you love coffee! The timer dial was something I hadn't been expecting, previous one had a "number of cups" dial instead. I've read people's guidelines on how long to grind for how many cups, I don't intend on measuring the ground coffee, more likely I'll measure out the beans instead. Much quieter than my previous version, and looks like it will be less likely to jam up on dark roasts, with a nice big chute.

2-0 out of 5 stars Messy, Messy, Messy!
Well, it grinds ok, I agree with other posters about the fine grounds, but I'm not the coffee fan in the family here, so ignore my opinion on that. However, I am the one that makes the coffee each day, and oh my is this thing MESSY! The static provides a mini-coffee explosion upon opening the canister, the grounds get stuck in the duct that leads to the canister and they have to be dug out with a knife/spoon something to that effect. I really wouldn't recommend it just on the basis that it is SO incredibly messy.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK Grind but Messy Messy Messy ...
The chute leading from the grinding wheel gets clogged, and grinds go all over the counter when you detach the ground coffee compartment from the unit. The consistency of the ground coffee is good however.

4-0 out of 5 stars Can't beat it for the price
This is a great coffee grinder at this price point. To do much better you are looking at probably over $100.

Other reviews have mentioned the static problem. This is true, but is easily dealt with: get into the habit of removing the hopper and breathing into it before grinding, just enough to fog the inside. After this the static won't be noticable. As long as you put it back together tightly there won't be much mess. ... Read more

Equipped with hard burrs that grind beans more uniformly andwithout the flavor-destroying heat generated by blade grinders, thiscoffee mill makes preparing fresh coffee simple. It has preprogrammedbuttons for grinding enough to brew 4, 8, 10, or 12 cups and a dial forselecting one of 18 grind consistencies, from very coarse to very finefor espresso. The bean chamber holds 8 ounces, enough for about 36five-ounce cups. When the selected amount of beans is ground, the millshuts off automatically. A transparent plastic container snaps into themill's front to catch up to 8 ounces of ground coffee. It has a snap-onlid so it can store either ground coffee or beans. For easy cleaning,the grinding wheel twists out. The 120-watt mill measures 5 incheswide, 9 inches high, and 6-1/2 inches deep.

5-0 out of 5 stars A burr grinder at a regular grinder price
While the price of all small coffee grinders seems to have dropped, this burr grinder costs about what I paid for a basic blade grinder years ago. As to the machine. It has 18 degrees of fineness, which you set easily with a wheel on the side. Open the top, fill it with coffee (it holds about a half pound). Hit one of the preset amount buttons, 4,8,10 or 12, and in a few seconds, the bottom detachable container is ready to slide out. It takes some experimentation to find out how fine you like your grind, and if the preset amounts produce the right amount for your pot. I found that the amount it produced for eight cups was just right for our ten cup pot (and I don't like weak coffee). If none of the preset amounts are right for you, it has a shut off button on the front, so you can hit the button for a larger amount and shut it off early. Since the preset amounts seem generous, it should grind enough coffee for most automatic makers, press pots, etc.
The coffee storage area on top is a little small, i.e. it holds about enough for two twelve cup pots, but its simple enough to keep adding new beans.
The grinding burr comes out easily (i.e. the top one - the bottom one is attached, but cleaning is easy. When the coffee is ground, it ends up in a clear plastic container that slides out easily, and cleans up easily.
There is cord storage space underneath, so you can leave out just enough cord to reach from the unit to the wall socket - and this machine has earned a permanent place on our counter, next to the coffee pot. Its going to be burr grinding from now on.

4-0 out of 5 stars Burr grinder quality for a blade grinder price
I have used many grinders, and the burr grinders make a much, much better cup of coffee than the blade grinders. There may be better grinders out there, but if you can't afford to spend a fortune, this machine gives you "burr" quality for a "blade" price. It is convenient and easy to use, and easy to clean. I never have to measure coffee, I just press the "6" button and pour the grounds into the coffee maker.

There are a couple of minor inconveniences.
1. There is a small amount of ground coffee that ends up on the counter. Very little, in my experience, nothing like the big mess described below.
2. You do have to experiment with the coarseness settings until you find what you like. It took me three tries to figure out that I like it at setting 10. I used the finest setting a couple of times, to make espresso, and the results were great.

By the way, I have found that I prefer to use the amount of coffee recommended for 6 cups when I make 8 cups of coffee. That has nothing to do with this grinder, I have found exactly the same results with other grinders and other coffee makers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ground coffee is abrasive
After about 6 months of once daily use the grounds finally wore a hole in the side of the chute that delivers the coffee to the hopper. This resulted in the motor housing filling up with ground coffee, and eventually the whole machine seizing up.

2-0 out of 5 stars A real letdown
I purchased this grinder in spite of some of the poor reviews and ended up sending it right back to Amazon. I have had several coffee grinders and this one is the poorest performer of all. It only costs $20, but why spend $20 on a grinder that gives poor results when you can get a blade grinder for $10 that does a much better job? This Melitta coffee mill purports to grind from fine to coarse but in reality only grinds to a course consistency. I sent this item back as defective because the product information clearly states "18 grind selections, from very coarse to very fine for espresso." This is clearly not accurate. I hope to get my shipping cost back. Anyway, it's a nice looking product but simply doesn't perform as expected.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's a very good value
Overall I think this little grinder is the best small grinder for the money. I haven't heard a grinder at any price that wasn't horribly noisy. The one I bought from Amazon is relatively quiet, but the one at my office is a bit noisier (I got mine based on my experience at the office, I don't know how old it is or how much use it has had). Niether of them are any noisier than the Krups blade grinder that seems so popular. The one at home leaks a little and leaves some coffee dust to clean up, the office one does not. This could be because I use a finer grind at home (for espresso) and the office one grinds medium for drip coffee. The home one is leaking less with time, I think that maybe some of the grounds are building up where the coffee enters the container and sealing it up a bit.
I got mine because the doser/grinder on my espresso machine needed new burrs, and I couldn't find replacements anywhere.
The main thing I have noticed between this grinder and the old one is the Melitta does not give a consistent grind. The old one was a solid cast metal frame, this one is all plastic, so go figure.
The old grinder is part of the Profi Estro machine that Starbucks used to sell (they changed the name to their Barrista brand and offered it in more colors). The machine with the doser grinder sold for $500 to $800 about 7 years ago.
For the price, I am very happy with this mill. ... Read more

Product Description

A sculpted metal base and the monochromatic enclosure give this new grinder a bold, distinctive look. The new base and additional improvements contribute to more than a doubling of the weight over the Maestro to 7.5 lbs. The additional weight gives the Maestro Plus a rock-solid feel with increased stability. The Maestro Plus is built with conical burrs that can produce the perfect grind for any style of coffee from Turkish to French Press. The range of grind is 30% greater than the original Maestro; this increase is on the coarsest settings making it easier to get the perfect grind for Drip and French Press. The number of grind settings has been increased by over 100% to 40 steps, providing more grind adjustments. Additional features include: · Slow rotation insures extremely low static electricity issues. · Special gear reduction for slow rotation, ensuring the retention of the aroma and flavor of the freshly ground beans. · Large 5 oz ground-coffee bin, as well as the ability to grind directly into espresso brewing baskets and drip coffee filters. · 8 oz. bean capacity. · A timer knob controls coffee grinding time. · A pulse button switch on the nose of the grinder is perfect when grinding direct into espresso brewing basket. · Ground coffee drops vertically into the tightly fitting coffee bin, insuring dust free operation. · Bin area is large enough to accommodate even commercial sized portafilters for grinding directly into them, without the bin. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice grinder
If you need to grind espresso or French press this is supposed to be the best general purpose grinder under $200.
If you're even more serious about grinding espresso you may want to look at something like a Rancilio Rocky, $295 or Pasquini Moka Grinder @ $499

This can be considered high end for home use especially for a drip coffee maker. (that's what I use it for). It also can be considered a good upgrade if you want something better than a blade grinder or inexpensive burr grinder or a backup espresso grinder if you already have a serious espresso grinder. (This was my upgrade from a Braun burr grinder).
It's also not intended for commercial use, it won't hold up to that kind of constant use but I think it's a great grinder for all aspects of home/office use if you're looking for a heavy duty conical burr grinder.

I narrowed my choice to the Solis or the Capresso. They're nearly the same but the Solis was designed and assembled in the USA, the Capresso is made in China.

This is easy to dissasemble and clean. It's quiet, low static with less mess. It's smooth operating with enough weight to feel like an appliance and not a toy. It's all I need for my high-end drip and low-end espresso needs.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money...
Sad to say I bought this waste-of-money. What's so great about a grinder that constantly gives you a pinch of stale coffee with each grind? Cleaning out this old coffee is not possible without hassle and mess. They should have included an integrated lever to knock out the remainders after a grind -- what would that have added to the $150 price, really?

Instead, cleaning of the grinder, according to the manual, consists of removing the "grinding ring burr" and brushing it off. This part is a small ring at the very top of the grinder and it might actually be useful to clean if one grinds lots of sticky espresso, however this does nothing to remove the many grounds that remain trapped in the grinding mechanism. A single-page insert in the box tells us to remove the grounds bin and insert a paper clip (no kidding) up into the machine and try to knock out the remaining grounds. Ironic, considering that the product description said "Special gear reduction for slow rotation, ensuring the retention of the aroma and flavor of the freshly ground beans." Apparently Solis went to a lot of trouble to design the machine to grind slowly, but failed to provide way (except for the infamous Macintosh-floppy-drive method) to get out old, stale grounds. I tried the paper clip method. I put a damp paper towel down first to catch the falling grinds and cleaned thoroughly with a paper clip. After that (and cleaning the ring) I took it to the sink turned it upside down. Lots more grounds fell out. I blew into the grinder. LOTS more grounds came out. Overall, the ring/paper-clip method gets 1/4 of the stuff out. Not good.

However, if one doesn't clean it each and every time then the results are probably worse than from a $10 grinder: Mmmm, mmm, taste the special blend of stale and fresh coffee, perfectly ground of course!

Also, beneath the bin that catches the grounds are small gaps that lead into the base of the grinder. Coffee that gets into these during the aforementioned cleaning process (as it sometimes does) will remain trapped there forever. Cleaning is a messy process with grounds strewn on the countertop and in the bin area despite precautions.

I feel ripped off. From the reviews, I thought I was buying a top-notch product, but I've wasted my money -- I'll probably try to sell this. I had paid the $50 over China-made Capresso (as another reviewer did) for the (wrongly) perceived quality of Swiss design/manufacture and US assembly. Har! I don't know the Capresso would have been any better but I wouldn't buy this again!

For one-hundred-and-fifty-dollars I deserved better. All Solis would have had to have done is add a mechanism to knock loose the old grounds and close the gaps under the bin. Too late.

Don't WASTE your money on this. Buy something else. Oh, and may I respectfully suggest to the uber-coffee-geeks (who recommended this grinder on their website) that if one has to spend $500 or $1000 on coffee machinery to get a "good" cup it is not worth it and one's priorities would be woefully out of balance to pay such a sum? Same with this grinder, actually. :-(

5-0 out of 5 stars Expensive but excellance doesn't come cheap
(...), I believe most people are looking here for recommendations from someone who actually purchased the product. So here are mine:

If you are a casual "Mr Coffee" drip coffee drinker, this is likely to be over the top for you.

If you are a coffee geek that roasts, grinds, and brews your own coffee, this is indespensible hardware.

Since most of you will likely be somewhere in between, I will risk the wrath of my fellow coffee snobs and make a monumental generalization: If your coffee is filtered through paper (and you like it that way) you don't need this. A basic blade grinder can do a competent job for paper filtered drip coffee. And do it much more economically.

This product shines for those of us who need a consistent, uniform grind for our espresso machine, french press, or "gold" metal filtered drip systems. Paper filtered drip coffee WILL benefit from a more uniform grind but probably not to the point that even a coffee snob like myself could reliably discern.

One final factor to consider is the size/look of this impressive machine. If you like thought of trading some kitchen counter top space for giving anyone who enters your kitchen the impression that you are a part-time barista, this unit is for you. If you want to toss your grinder into a cupboard after each use, you are going to get a workout. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Ten cups worth of simple grinding
We spend mornings together. Evenings are better spent separately, but mornings are when our friendship is the most piqued and perky. At about 6:00 a.m. I awake all haggard and gravel-voiced, not seeing any clear reasons for daylight. My view and the sun both lift more quickly when this coffee grinder is at work.

I like coffee fresh, and carefully prepare it from freezing my beans to using only the heaviest cream and clover honey to sweeten the taste. To have the flavor I prefer most, I grind each pot's beans. Of all the options, the Toastmaster Coffee Grinder is all I need.

When it whirs, it purrs, happy to help me through the day's waking labor. I treat it well, never abusing it with harsh cleansers or hot water.

I have made ten cups of coffee ground from this device. That is probably the limit of the grinding bowl.

I never ask much of this one-speed friend. It turns on when I press the button. It turns off when I release the button. How fine a grind is based on how long it grinds. I only make one kind of coffee, so additional settings are not necessary. It wipes clean with a dry paper towel. Most of you only use a simple brewer, and will be happy with this grinder. ...
