Coffee & Spices:

The Cool Grind Blade Grinder is designed for grinding whole coffee beans for flavorful drip or percolator coffee. It features a large stainless steel grinding chamber that reduces heat build-up and preserves aroma. But don’t stop at coffee beans, this versatile grinder can also be used as a spice grinder. Use it to grind peppercorns, coriander seeds or other dried spices to make a spice rub, or try grinding flax seeds or chia seeds into powder for a healthy boost to baked goods.

For Any Coffee Maker:

The Capresso Burr Grinder offers 17 grind settings so you can select the ideal grind for any brewing device from espresso machine to French Press. This is Capresso’s most economical burr grinder and it delivers a highly consistent grind.

Top of the Line:

The Infinity Conical Burr Grinder features professional grade conical steel burrs and a full range of grind settings, from Turkish fine to coarse. The machine produces the slowest grinding action, with little static build-up and the lowest noise to deliver maximum aroma and flavor retention.

To brew the most flavorful cup of coffee, keep these tips in mind:

  • Only grind what you need now; don’t grind coffee beans for the whole week. Ground coffee interacts with the air around it and within hours loses a great deal of flavor.
  • Store ground coffee in an airtight, dark container and store in a cool and dry place.
  • Clean your grinder often. Coffee oils can deposit inside the grinding chamber and become rancid. We recommend cleaning daily with a damp cloth and make sure that all parts are completely dry before its next use.
