Don't think that just because it's labeled "Dose" that you can't use it as a standard grinder and grind into a cup or other container for regular coffee because you can, and that's all I use it for. You can even put the coffee basket directly under it if you slide out the tray. However, I find it easy enough just to use a cup to catch the coffee and pour it into my coffee filter basket.
I tried the Capresso Metal Infinity, yes metal, I didn't like it and returned it. It didn't have nearly the adjustment range and even though it has a metal body, the hopper was plastic and hard to turn when adjusting. The upper burr was mounted in plastic and didn't seem to have the same quality as the Breville.
Reviews rate them both as good entry level grinders, I'd say they got it half right. The Breville far exceeded my expectations and is worth every penny I spent on it.
I did adjust the burrs (the inside the machine fine tuning you can do) from the preset 5 setting to the finer 2 setting (trying one step at a time as instructions suggested). I'm including a photo (first photo) I took on the 3 setting (for the burrs) with the outer settings at 60 (coarsest), 30 (medium) and 0 (finest). I decided to go down to 2 after I took these photos as the middle pile in the photo (setting 30) was supposed to be finer than the finest drip setting (which is 35) but still seemed a bit coarse for that to me.
I use a stove top percolator and like what I would call (judging by the range of pre ground coffee I've bought) a finer drip setting grind. (There really is quite a range in coarseness in what different makers sell as drip). I find it easier to get a strong cup of coffee that way. I've settled on a 20 with this machine, with the internal burrs set at 2. This is venturing into espresso territory according to the machine's labels for the settings...but just below what they call percolator, so close enough for this perfectionist. (Oddly, they label percolator as being finer than drip...thought it was coarser...but no matter....they're just suggestions anyways. And this percolator user likes it finer.)
It is super easy to remove the top burr for cleaning and adjusting. The machine is quiet. I did notice it was quite a bit louder set at 0 but I won't be using that setting.
Part of my reason for wanting a step up from the capresso or Baratza was to avoid a problem that came up in reviews...stale and wasted grounds trapped in the machine. I only put what I'm using at that moment into the hopper and I'd really like all or nearly all of it to come out. I discovered that this machine can also have this pitfall, but removing the hopper lid and putting it back on gets those last grinds to fall right out. Tapping to replicate putting the lid helps, but actually removing the lid and replacing it works better for whatever reason. I tap as it finishes grinding, then remove replace the lid after it is done....those last grinds fall right out.
I'll include a second photo of my preferred setting, 20, with the internal burrs set at 3 on the left and 2 on the right. You may not be able to see the difference but the 2 is ever so slightly getting into powdery territory. That's what I prefer....just getting into that territory. The coffee is delicious.
Original Review: I've been using this for a week and couldn't be happier so far! I grind into a small measuring glass so I can get a feel for exactly how long of a grind I like for various sized mugs. This machine feels far sturdier than the Capresso Infinity, which I almost bought (when I saw this Breville on sale for a comparable price, there was no hesitation). I think it looks much nicer, too.
I love the way the hopper comes off so you can release the unground beans back into their container - now that I have this, it's hard to imagine having to upend the whole machine to dump beans out (which it appears most grinders require). The removable bottom tray is also great as you can just dump any mess you made and slip it right back into place.
I don't do espresso and therefore can't comment on the finest grind settings, but it appears to do a very good job on my coarser grinds. Most importantly, my coffee is now incredibly tasty!
