The perfect coffee starts with a precise amount of freshly ground beans. The Breville Smart Grinder™ contains Dosing IQ™ which automatically calibrates each dose every time the grind settings are adjusted, giving you the perfect amount you need each and every time. The Backlit LCD Screen has an easy-to-read large display with 25 Grind settings, number of cups/shots, and customized grind amount options for french press, drip coffee, percolator, and espresso.This machine will automatically grind for direct dosing into Portafilter, Grinds Container or Drip Filter Baskets.
Very user friendly, with a nicely lit LED display that shows the grind setting (unheard of on burr grinders at this price point).
Program the amount of coffee that is dispensed.
Thoughtful design details that are typical of the folks at Breville, including a bean lock that allows you to remove the hopper without spilling beans, magnetic portafilter holder, and a grinds hopper with rough volume indications.
Burr set is not as advanced and reliable as those found on Baratza grinders.
Only 10 settings (roughly) will work for traditional espresso machines with powerful pumps like those found at Clive.
