Nothing beats waking up in the morning to the aroma of fresh coffee beans coming from your kitchen.
Are you a coffee lover who is looking for a way to improve your coffee experience? If so, consider making an investment in your grinder. No coffee is perfect without a decent coffee grinder. Even if you own a good coffee machine, it is critical to pair it with a quality coffee grinder to perfect your coffee.
If you are in the market for a quality mid-range burr grinder, look no further. Get the Breville Smart Grinder Pro.
It is one of the top-rated automatic coffee grinders on the market, which has tons of features and provides excellent value for your money.
• 2 x Portafilter cradles (one 50-54mm and one 58mm)
• Grind container with cover and sealing cap
• Burr cleaning brush
The Breville Smart Grinder Pro looks stylish enough with its thoughtful design and attractive compact brushed steel housing. Coffee grinders are generally relatively simple with few moving parts, but the Breville Smart Grinder Pro is truly a different one that serves as a multi-purpose grinder.
It is constructed with 40mm adjustable conical steel burrs and features 60 different grind settings! You are sure to find the right grind every time, and it allows you to serve anything from percolator (coarsest) to espresso (finest) by simply adjusting the knob on the right.
The grinder is programmable with its dosing IQ functionality that controls the serving portions of coffee based on the desired amount of cups or shots. You can program your desired grind time within 0.2-second increments for each setting.
Simply slide the portafilter in the cradle and press the switch (or hit the Start/Pause button) and it starts automatically. Pressing it again will pause the grinding so you can even out your ground. One last press and the grinder will resume and grind in the remaining amount of time.
The intuitive on board digital LCD screen is user friendly, clear, and bright enough to display useful information for a better grinding experience. It shows grind time, grind size setting and number of shots/cups you have chosen. It is extremely easy to use and read so you never have to guess or worry about making the wrong settings.
Cleaning and maintenance
If you want to grind the best coffee beans possible with your grinder, you need to give it a good cleaning periodically. I am surprised how easy it is to clean this grinder with the provided cleaning brush. Basically all you need to do is remove the bean hopper and upper burr, then brush the grinds off the burrs. You may also use a vacuum with the hose attachment if you have one handy.
One thing to mention is the removable grinds catch tray located underneath the grinder’s chute. This convenience tray is magnetic and pops out for easy cleaning. It makes the whole grinding process a mess-free experience.
