Capresso - Coffee Burr Grinder Always the Correct Fineness for Espresso, Drip, French Press and Percolators Consistent, uniform and fresh grinding for espresso machines, drip coffee makers and French press. The Capresso Coffee Burr Grinder with 17 grind settings allows for adjustment from coarse to fine for any brewing method. Grinding fresh whole bean coffee immediately before brewing is the first step to achieving the best tasting coffee at home. Ground coffee interacts with the air around it and, within hours, loses a great deal of flavor and aroma. The longer the ground coffee is exposed to air the more flavor is lost and the rich, full-bodied taste of the coffee cannot be obtained. Just the Right Grind How Things Work Setting the Timer The timer can be set to grind for 2 to 12 cups of brewed coffee. When grinding in the finest position, less coffee per second will pass through the grinder than when grinding in the coarsest setting. The amount of ground coffee varies quite a bit depending on how coarse or fine you grind and whether you use light, dry beans or dark, oily beans. After grinding a few times, you will find the correct grind amount position for the amount of coffee you want to grind. Remember, you can always stop the grinding process by simply pushing the on/off button.

What is coffee without the bean? Hot water is what it is. The coffee bean is the fundamental ingredient that needs to be brewed to make coffee. The difference between decent coffee and great coffee is the bean's type of roast and when the bean was ground. Every time you buy fresh coffee beans and ask the checkout person at the coffee shop to grind your beans you are opening up the "flavor cells" and causing your beans to begin losing their flavor rapidly. The purpose of grinding the beans is to create a larger surface area that will release the flavor and oils to the surrounding hot water. If coffee is prematurely exposed to air, it "breathes", leaving less and less flavor for the brew, when the water finally hits the bean. It only takes a few moments to grind your own beans. The difference it makes will surprise you. Burr grinders are said to be the best option for grinding coffee beans. Most Burr grinders include a compartment at the top of the grinder that holds the beans. This is an airtight compartment that will keep the beans fresh until you are ready to grind them. When you are ready to grind, simply select the amount of coffee you'd like to prepare and the Burr grinder will release that amount of beans to be ground. Owning a coffee grinder and grinding coffee beans at your own home will give you the maximum experience of the true joy of coffee. Adding the Kitchenaid Pro Line Series KPCG100 Burr Coffee Mill is a dependable way to assure you're getting great coffee. It's what you deserve every moment you brew and taste a cup.
