Genuinely not on commission. . Remaining the neurotic software that i am, i invested approximately 4 hrs making an attempt to choose what grinder to spend in (soon after my cuisinart began enjoying up). I know everyone implies getting the advice of the mid selection opinions but. This does far more than the trick. Its damned silent also thinking of its. Devoid of a question the quietest grinder i have owned – to put it into standpoint. My cat doesnt attack it like he did the very last one particular. I’d recommend this to any one.

I have a gaggia ‘coffee’ classic machine and its notorious for being difficult with finding the perfect grind, however this machine did the job perfectly. I was very surprised when i found a review on here saying that it doesn’t grind fine enough for espresso, because out of the 20 ‘espresso’ settings, i find that it works best on 15 (with 1 being the finest) – i get a 30 second drip with a fairly strong tamp. If i grind on 1 to 5 the coffee is far too fine and it doesn’t come through. So if you’re worried about whether this grinds fine enough for espresso then you can rest easy. The only negative of this machine is that the body is made of plastic and it feels/looks very cheap and flimsy – seems solid inside though.

Used it only 4 times but i love it so far, no hassle, select grind time, press a button, done, i was using a manual grinder, 4 to 5 mins for one espresso, 10 secs with this grinder, hope it lasts at least a few yearsedit: 25/05/17im taking one star away because of an electrical hum/buzz coming from the grinder, my house is properly grounded and v at the outlet is just fine, fingers crossed, im using it outside uk and it seems im not covered by warranty, was gona buy a duo temp pro machine, im thinking twice now. Here are the specifications for the Sage by Heston Blumenthal BCG600SIL the Dose Control Pro Coffee Grinder –:

  • 60 Grind Settings from Espresso to Plunger
  • High Torque, Direct Current Drive Motor
  • Adjustable Amount Dial
  • Precision Electronic Timer
  • Hands-free Grinding Cradle

Reviews from purchasers :

  • the coffee extraction was not as good as I had anticipated
  • What a great machine. The taste is so much better grinding
  • Good enough for me!

Yes, it is great for espresso. Yes, it is great for espresso. I have a gaggia classic and have been using this for several years. I have been grinding with a dualit which i took apart and adjusted for a finder grind. Eventually it destroyed itself and i upgraded to this sage grinder. It is well made, the bean hopper has an airtight seal to keep the beans fresh and i can grind directly into the portafilter. There are plenty of grind adjustments and the timer can be set so that you just press the button for the right amount of coffee. Of course, for espresso machines the most important question is will it grind fine enough for a good crema. The answer with this one is a definite yes. I use lavazza rossa and the coffees i have made look and taste amazing.

Simple to use and perfectly does job. Simple to use and perfectly does job. Minus one star for strong electrical noise/buzzing, that’s disappointing. So, now i am not sure about buying the dual boiler.

The taste is so much better grinding. The taste is so much better grinding fresh. Easy to use and takes up little space compared to my last bean to cup beast, the settings range is good, so you can play around to find exactly what you want.

The coffee extraction was not as good as i had anticipated. Recently purchased the sage duo temp pro coffee machine. I didn’t get the barista express (the next model up with inbuilt grinder) as i already had a coffee grinder. However, the coffee extraction was not as good as i had anticipated. My existing coffee grinder had plastic burrs, had served me well for a number of years, brewing coffee with a cafetiere. After doing a little research on upgrading my grinder, my findings are,the grinder is the most important part of your coffee set up. It’s the first place (apart from water) that you should spend your coffee equipment budget. Conical burrs are good – they reduce the footprint of your grinder. Ceramic extend the life of the burrs and allow more kg to be ground. Steel are better and flat steel burrs produce a better taste.

Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Smart Grinder Pro, Great grinder so far

Espresso grinder for typical use. Fantastic functionality in line with the selling price. I was not confident what to go for in this sector where finances lines are reasonably new, but resolved to consider a likelihood for less than £200, if it goes completely wrong that is not also a …
