The Cuisinart Coffee Mill is outfitted with a heavy-duty motor. Due to the machine having 18 grind settings ranging from fine to extra-coarse, you get the coffee your way. Most of all the settings are controlled by a clearly marked, pleasantly clicking dial.
Rotate the hopper to a personal preference, and the machine does the rest. In addition, the mill uses burr plates for a highly uniform grind that protects bean oils and releases more flavor.
The automatic operation in this grinder covers quantity as well. All you do is set the amount of the slide control anywhere from 4 to 18 cups. The mill shuts off when the desired level is reached.
After the mill is finished you just transfer the grounds to a coffee pot or espresso machine.
We liked that the coffee mill measures and grinds the exact amount needed. As well it does a good job at grinding various kinds of beans with little effort. Also, people found that it was very straightforward and easy to use.
Although not a complaint, the mill is pretty noisy when in use. This is to be expected since it is grinding hard coffee beans.
It will make any type of coffee from espresso to French drip.
The mill is smart and elegant and 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.
A safety feature keeps the grinder from operating without the hopper and chamber in place.
In conclusion, the Cuisinart Coffee Mill Grinder does a great job of grinding beans whether you want to enjoy a cup of coffee using an automatic drip, espresso, or French press coffee maker.
