I am trying to find a good coffee grinder for drip coffee that will allow me to make 12 cups each morning. I need the grounds to fall into a container that has minimum static so that I can pour the grounds into the filter basket. The Baratza Maestro Plus looks like a good bet, but concerned as there are no recent reviews and the most recent seems somewhat negative. I have gone through two espresso machines and am no using a pod machine which works well enough for us. Any suggestions?
What is the difference between the Baratza Maestro and the Maestro Plus?
I bought this grinder from you just shy of two years ago now and it has been the best grinder I have ever owned in the over 35 years I have been grinding my own beans. Thank you for that. However, over the last several months, I have found it necessary to adjust the grind setting closer and closer to '0' in order to get a quality pull from my espresso machine. Additionally, in doing this, I have been getting a much wetter puck at the end of my pulls. Previous to the down adjustments, I have ended each pull with a dry, firm puck as I have been used to for years. (BTW, I have one click to go at this point before I run out.)
It is the first conical burred grinder I have owned and have been in love with the consistent grind I have received from it since day one. I can't think that I would have to replace the burrs so soon, as it has been my experience that a grinder's motor usually goes before the burrs.
Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.
First of all I want to commend you on a fantastic website! I take my coffee very seriously and I'm so glad there is a website that does as well.
I am a college student being drained of money constantly, and so my budget is not limitless, but I was thinking of buying a Gaggia classic. I want to find the cheapest burr grinder that won't break after a week and will grind fine enough for that machine.
It will be used primarily for double shots for cappucinos.
It's my friend's wedding and someome bought them a breville cafe roma. This is not a high end espresso machine and I'm looking for a grinder to go with it. I want to make sure that they will get the max from their machine but I'm guessing that It's probably now necessary to go to a 800$ do do so in this particular case. I was looking at the Baratza Maestro plus and the Capresso Infinity. Am I looking in the right direction ?
I will be using this for flax seed - I grind 4 cups per day for my horses. Can the burrs be replaced when they dull?
Looking at either the Baratza Maestro Plus or the Virtuoso. I'll be doing mostly drip coffee. Is there a big difference betwen the 2. Also where do you ship from
I'm right on the verge of purchasing the Baratza Maestro Plus and as much as I have read the reviews, let the experts confirm. Has the plastic hopper gears been replaced with stronger plastic or something in the form of metal?
The tabs on the plastic cone / bean holder broke off so I can no longer change the setting on the grin. Is it possible to replace the top / plastic bean holder?
