Streamlined and constructed of die-cast stainless steel, the Capresso Infinity is easy on the eyes. It also comes with the latest in grinding technology: the conical burr. This neat little feature beats the standard chopping blade and the antiquated flat burr and guarantees a steady stream of great coffee.

The Capresso Infinity is built to be able to handle anything you throw at it, including grinding coffee beans fine enough for you to enjoy some sweet, flavorful Turkish coffee. Unfortunately, this ability makes it a little biased against coarser brews so you might want to stay away from the French press. If you’re fine with that then be ready for some great espressos that will pour into your glass like delectable syrup.
Cleaning up after each successful brew is not walk in the part though. This grinder demands that you work hard to keep it ready for the next time you need to use it. This wouldn’t be so bad if the process for cleaning the Capresso Infinity wasn’t so arduous and close to impossible.
The chute where the ground beans fall into the bottom container is especially hard to clean. Capresso 565.05 Infinity Conical Burr Grinder is very thin and has many places for the processed beans to get stuck. Cleaning out the grinding chamber is not much easier. This can cause long-term problems because the leftover coffee will give subsequent batches an unpleasant taste.
You also get a moderate level of control over your coffee with the 16 different grind settings the Capresso Infinity features. This facilitates your ability to efficiently recreate your favorite style over and over again. Helping you even more with this is the sixty second timer that gives you room to multitask and grind your coffee for a consistent amount of time each time.
Be ready to clean after yourself when you take out the hopper! There is a considerable amount of static that builds up over time and it can cause some of the ground coffee to fly out and fall on the floor or your clothing.
This is an unpleasant surprise given the fact that the Capresso Infinity is supposed to have reduction gearing in order to minimize rogue dust and static. The motor is decent though and although it is not super quiet, it is not loud enough to really bother anyone.
Whether you invest in this grinder should be based almost entirely on how much time you’re willing to spend each day to clean this machine after every use. If you don’t intend to clean this after every use and don’t mind slightly bitter coffee and the potential for small chunks of old, stale coffee in your brew then this would be a perfect grinder to get.
Even if you do intend to clean it, the Capresso Infinity is very inexpensive and it produces stellar coffee (especially espressos) when it has been cleaned so if you don’t mind that glaring design flaw then this is certainly a great buy!
