I use a french press only for my coffee. I always select coarse grind. Will this Cuisinart Blade Grinder satisfy my need for a french press?

gophishin Lee, you will be much better served by purchasing a burr grinder, and with burr grinders you typically get what you pay for, so do your homework. A blade grinder will not grind consistently enough so you will get dust and boulders (large and small particles) which extract at different rates - the small dust extracting faster and/or over extracting creating bitter coffee. I went with a cheap blade grinder for awhile on my FP and once I got a good burr grinder I notice a big difference in body, overall balance, and flavor profile.

How many ounces will the cuisinart grind central grinder hold at one time? Please advise me of the cheapest grinder that will grind at one time 1/2 lb of coffee beans and will grind at one time 1 lb of coffee beans for a relatively fine grind. Thank you. Bob Fastov

mjackson ♦ Robert,

Good question. The Jura Capresso Infinity Burr Grinder will hold eight ounces in the bean hopper and 4 ounces in the ground container. I think it is going to be hard to find a grinder that will hold a pound of ground beans at a time. The one that will is the Breville Smart grinder as the least expensive. I hope this helps.

I am looking for a BLADE coffee grinder with a dial for coarse to fine grind and another for the number of cups to be ground. Is this it?

Whole Latte Love Staff Blade grinders do not have grind settings - to grind finer, you will simply grind for a longer amount of time. Burr grinders do have grind settings from coarse to fine, which allow you to get the perfect grind no matter what brewing method you’re using and create a more even and consistent grind than blade grinders can provide. I’m not sure how fine you’ll need your grinds, but there are a couple of models I can recommend: the Krups Burr Grinder and the Bunn BCG. Both models have the ability for you to change the grind setting and select how much you’d like to grind based on the number of cups. You can learn more about these grinders by following the links below.

Whole Latte Love Staff The Grind Central can hold and grind up to 4 oz of coffee, which is more than enough for a 12-cup pot of drip coffee. Information like this can be found for any of the grinders we carry by following the link below to our Compare-O-Matic.

How does this operate? Do you have to hold it down to grind the beans like most blade grinders?

Whole Latte Love Staff The Grind Central has a single on/off button that you press and hold to grind - when you let go, grinding will stop. In addition, this grinder has a safety mechanism that won’t let you grind unless the lid is on and locked into place.

Whole Latte Love Staff Unfortunately, we only carry this and all of our grinders in 110/120v. I would recommend contacting Cuisinart directly at 800-726-0190 for further information on 220v availability.
