Drink it In: Caffeine Delivery Systems

Do I like coffee? No, of course not. Coffee is bitter and disgusting. But it has caffeine, and that I do love very very much. So sure, I'll drink coffee. I'll drink tea. I'll drink yerba mate even though it tastes like dirt. Just give me my fix!

I'm popping in here mainly about the grinder. Been needing a new grinder for a little while; mine is stuck and can't be pushed all the way to full Turkish/espresso. Has anyone used this model?

The Capresso 580.01 Burr Grinder is $43 w/ free shipping at Big Daddy Amazon. But the reviews are only 2 1/2 stars. However, almost none of the burr grinders--which are better than blade grinders--seem highly rated. And from what I read the burr grinders take more time and effort to maintain though they are favored by coffee afficandos.

I am hear for the grinder, or grinders in general. Do all grinders produce static electricity in the winter that makes the coffee grounds stick to everything? Mine does, and I have only used one my entire life.

TIA

Please don't delete this post, I am trying, honest!

I have this model and I like it. You do have to clean it regularly or it will clog and not run. Cleaning is fast and easy with the brush they provide... just messy.

I got the same Krups espresso machine at Costco for the same price (it wasn't listed on their website, even when I bought it in store after seeing it in person a month prior). While this isn't the greatest "deal", I would definitely recommend it for a basic pump machine.

DO you think this coffee maker will last any longer than the Wolfgang P model I had to throw away after 6 months?

Bought the Capresso coffeemaker 2 or 3 weeks ago. Great! No problems. Easy to use and coffee tastes great etc. Highly recommend.

580 is rubbish. I bought it here about 6-months ago. Very little difference between "coarse" and "fine" settings, and "finest" is nowhere near espresso grind! It's "OK" if you want to use it with drip/percolator and have fresh ground every morning (though probably not worth the cleaning/maintenance over blade), but not suitable for espresso. Strangely enough, when I called Capresso to complain, they themselves said I should have bought the 560 model...

I have an old Capresso Burr grinder - at least 5 years running. I hardly ever clean it. There is virtually no static. It works as well today as it did 5 years ago.
