The Jura-Capresso Infinity is a burr grinder with an elegant, timeless design. It comes in your choice of a stainless steel finish for a durable, professional look and feel, or in an economical black or Stainless Steel ABS plastic finish. Under the sleek lines you will find commercial-grade solid steel conical burrs. The Infinity is capable of 16 grind settings allowing for grind range for an Espresso to a nice coarse grind for a French Press. It is also equipped with a 5 to 60 second auto-stop timer mounted on the center face of the machine. To top it off, the top burr is removable for easy cleaning. Please note that most grinders are tested at the manufacturer and coffee grounds may be found in the grinder as a result. All machines sold are new unless otherwise clearly stated.
Features: Benefits: Coffee
The polished and brushed chrome models are made of a heavy-duty zinc die-cast housing. The black model is a sturdy ABS plastic that will hold up for years and the stainless steel model is designed for even better durability and a professional look.
Multiple Grind Settings
The Infinity Burr Grinder has 16 grind settings and will grind from fine for espresso machines to coarse enough for french press. The grind adjustments can be made by turning the bean hopper.
Motor With Gear Reduction System
The 100 watt motor is a gear reduction system. This is important because the slower grinding means less heat buildup which in-turn means less coffee flavor lost. The grinder motor produces far more torque (power) which means less strain on the motor and associated mechanisms and longer life. The grinding burrs incur less wear.
Conical Burr Grinding System
The Infinity's conical burrs rotate at 420rpm. This slow-speed grinder will produce a consistent grind while emitting almost no static charge and imparts little heat into the ground coffee.
Easy To Use Controls
The Infinity is equipped with a timer on the face of the machine. This easy to use dial can be set to grind from any where between five to 60 seconds. After the set time frame has elapsed the grinder will automatically stop.
The bean hopper is made of clear plastic and can hold up to 8.8 ounces of beans.
Ground Coffee Container
The ground coffee container will hold up to 4 ounces of ground coffee. It is made of clear plastic and is removable for access.

We cleaned the grinder. Now the bean hopper will not thread back into the base. No parts are missing. Any suggestions?
While your best bet would be to contact Capresso to troubleshoot the grinder directly, you may want to verify that everything was installed in the correct order and orientation; Any parts being out of position could be preventing a safety switch of some sort (common on these types of grinders) from being triggered, assuming it uses one at all.
I've been using mine for a little over a year and it's not grinding as fine as it did a couple of months ago. I used to be able to choke my Gaggia Classic, but now I can't get a pull to run for more than 12 seconds. That's at the very finest setting and really leaning into the tamper. Is it dull blades already? I grind an average of about 6 tbs. of beans per day - half of that is for a french press, half for espresso.
You may want to try purchasing some grindz to run thorugh it and try and clean it and see if that helps. See here - http://www.wholelattelove.com/Urnex/grindz_box.cfm. It may need new burrs or here is another thought .What basket are you using the pressurrized basket or the non pressurised basket? If you are using the pressurized basket did you perhaps loose the plastic pin as that will certainly cause what you have happening. Let us know and hopefully this helps.
Regular basket. And it used to grind more than fine enough. Sounds like new burrs.
Update: Turns out I ground-up a rock or some similar! I looked more closly and there is some clear damage in the grinder's teeth. Got a new upper burr from Jura and now it works good as new!
Will this model and the one that retails for $89.99 make a fine enough espresso grind for use with a Gaggia Baby Twin machine?
This grinder would definitely work for the Gaggia Baby Twin. Make sure that you use the pressurized filter basket to maximize crema production.
