Breville BCG800XL Smart Grinder
The amazing folks at Breville have done it again; the Breville BCG800XL Smart Grinder grinds, measures, and dispenses the exact amount of freshly ground beans for the absolute perf
Even professional baristas agree that this is one amazing grinder - no serious coffee lover should be without one! The best time to get this is during the holidays when the price is reduced.
Let’s start at the top. The airtight hopper on the top of the grinder holds more than a pound of coffee beans, and the airtight seal means that you can keep your beans in there for days without worrying that they are going to go stale and lose their precious aromatic oils which are so important to a proper cup of coffee. Hidden inside are two super-powerful conical burr grinders, which produce a consistent quality of grind each and every time. And controlling your grind couldn’t be easier - all controls are handled on the front LCD screen, which allows you to select from not 10, not 20, but 25 different levels of grind size, from coarse grind which is suitable for percolator or french press coffee, all the way down to super-fine grind for the espresso fans out there.
Precise Dosage Of Coffee
But the intelligence of this grinder doesn’t stop there. The Breville BCG800XL Smart Grinder will automatically calculate and dispense the precise amount of the coffee you need, based on the application. It senses the level of grind you’ve selected and adjusts the dose if necessary. Finer grinds result in smaller doses, while the coarser grinds result in the machine upping the dose. Smart little thing, isn’t it?
What we love is the fact that this grinding system is so neat and tidy - no stray coffee grinds floating all over the place and sticking to every exposed surface on the machine. It dispenses the grounds neatly and without fuss. The front dials on the machine allow quick and easy control over the grind and the amount, so whether you are filling your basket for a single shot of espresso, or filling your drip coffee maker for after-dinner coffee, you can be sure that you’ll get consistent results from this machine.
Doesn't Take Up A Lot of Space
The styling is amazing as well; it looks fantastic everywhere. It’s amazingly compact, which surprised us, for you don’t usually see a machine of this capacity and power with a footprint so small that you can easily leave it on your counter next to your coffee or espresso machine. Bottom line? If you’re very particular about your coffee and need a great deal of control over your daily grinds, then the Breville BCG800XL Smart Grinder definitely has a place in your kitchen.
