The Capresso burr grinder has received many great reviews depending on the model you choose. The majority of buyers prefer the stainless steel housing model but for those who use it once a day or less, the ABS model is reported to have satisfactory performance levels. It comes in two colors – black or stainless. The Capresso Burr Grinder is manufactured by Jura, a well known and respected manufacture of coffee makers and accessories.
