The Jura-Capresso 559 Burr Coffee Grinder allows you to produce uniform fresh coffee grounds for espresso machines, drip coffee makers and French press coffee makers. With its 17 grind settings it can accommodate many brewing methods.
Grinding fresh whole bean coffee immediately before brewing is the first step to achieving the best tasting coffee at home. Ground coffee interacts with the air around it and, within hours, loses a great deal of flavor and aroma. The longer the ground coffee is exposed to air the more flavor is lost and the rich, full-bodied taste of the coffee cannot be obtained.
The timer can be set to grind for 2 to 12 cups of brewed coffee. When grinding in the finest position, less coffee per second will pass through the grinder than when grinding in the coarsest setting. The amount of ground coffee varies quite a bit depending on how coarse or fine you grind and whether you use light, dry beans or dark, oily beans. After grinding a few times, you will find the correct grind amount position for the amount of coffee you want to grind. Remember, you can always stop the grinding process by simply pushing the on/off button.

I bought this to use as a grinder for my drip machine as I have a super auto with a grinder built in for my espresso needs. I am a bit disappointed in the adjustment of the grind. Basically I can get really coarse, or (set to finest) a mix of static powder stuck to the plastic container along with grounds similar to store bought ground. Fortunately this works out for me as I am using it for drip only. If you are looking for an espresso grinder change your search to a higher price range. Long story short... Works for drip machine but don't expect the precision for espresso.

Small, light and quick operation.
You may be able to adjust the burrs to make it perform better but I'm sure that would void warranty.
