Topic: New (to me) Capresso Inifinity Grinder (25 lines)
1) From: Norm Hardy
After much research on the Internet and local shops, I bought a $99 Capresso
Infinity (conical burr) grinder today at Peet's Coffee here in Seattle.
Peet's will handle any warranty claims needed, or so said the salesguy.
Just one data point to report:  This morning I used the Braun blade cutter
grinder for the last time (I hope) and made our usual latte.  Tasty.  This
afternoon I used the same beans for a latte with the new Capresso grinder.
Not nearly as much aroma came off when the beans were ground, on the fine
section.  Our cheapo Krups espresso maker showed a creamier brown crema than
what I'm used to.
My wife immediately said that she did not understand why, but that this
latte was clearly tastier to her than the morning version.
To me it tasted deeper, with more body, and a better aroma.  Placebo?  I
doubt it.  But definitely an improvement.
Next step is a decent home espresso unit...
