Making perfect coffee starts with a precise dose of freshly ground beans. How do you get the amount you need for the grind you select? The Smart Grinder with Dosing IQ automatically calibrates each dose every time you adjust the grind.
- Fresh grinds are key to making the best possible coffee and espresso.
- Avoid dark and and oily beans that can often lead to clogging the grind at its finest setting.
- Grind beans in small batches.
- Do not store beans in the bean hopper for a protracted period.
Dosing IQ technology automatically calibrates each dose every time the grind settings are adjusted, so you have precisely the amount of grinds needed no matter how fine or coarse the grind size.
The BCG800XL Smart Grinder bean hopper has a capacity of 1 pound, with an air-tight lid and locking system. The hopper is removable from the grinder base, so can easily be used to store beans at the correct temperature.
Different types of coffee preparation and different kinds of machines require different sizes. Choose from 25 precise grind settings from the finest espresso to the coarsest French press grind.
Hands-free grinding allows you to grind directly into a portafilter, grinds container, gold tone filter basket or paper filter, for more efficient grinding.
Unlike blade grinders, the BCG800XL's stainless steel conical burrs minimize grinding heat to protect the essential oils in the coffee bean.
Want a little bit more ground coffee? Want a bit less? The Smart Grinder also allows you to manually adjust the preset amount calculated by Dosing IQ to suit your personal taste.
The Breville BCG800X Smart Grinder has a backlit LCD screen that clearly shows grind setting, number of cups or shots, and customized grind amount. A removable grinds catcher catches grinds that spill over, and the cord wraps around the base for easier storage. All parts that come into contact with coffee are BPA free. Smart grinder accessories include two portafilter cradles (one large 58mm and one small 50/54mm), grind container with sealing cap, and a cleaning brush for the conical burrs.
Frequently Asked Questions
I bought it 6 months ago and I'm using it twice a week. Now, it seems like it's not grinding anymore. Which way is the best way to fix it?
You should be cleaning it at least monthly. If this is done thoroughly and it is reassembled correctly, and the motor runs, it should work. Be certain that there is no obstruction to the entry of beans from the holder, and the exit of grounds from the burs. Beyond that, send it to a service center.
What is the proper grind for k cups
Looking at the grinder count 7 notches from the left(coarse side) . Set it at the mark that is right below the letters o and r in the word "percolator" above .Don't know if it makes a difference but I also have the strength set at one notch to the strong side. I tried many types of grinds and this works absolutely the best .Also you might want to take a used "k" cup and empty it out removing the paper filter inside . Cut off the very top edge of the used "k"cup and insert it into the my kcup holder.Use three coffee scoops in the basket for a 10 ounce cup.Tap the basket on your counter to settle the coffee in the filter .Comes out Strong but not too strong. Then put your filter basket with the coffee into the holder ,screw on the top and you will have a great cup of coffee . The old cut down kcup can be used over and over again,just wash it with the rest of the parts. Here is a link you can use http://www.instructables.com/id/Get-a-STRONGER-Brew-from-your-My-Kcup/#step1 Enjoy . Ps Try blending a good Colombian and Sumatran or Ethiopian . Real nice smooth brew!!!
Does anyone out there have 2 hoppers, one for regular coffee and one for decaf, and is it worth the trouble?
No, it does not have two hoppers and I can't imagine enough decaff freshly ground beans being used for it to matter. I don't know of another one with a double hopper, but I would imagine the mechanism could be complex and easily broken. This is a fantastic machine, that's about all I can tell you. I love it, but I only drink espresso, Illy single origin from Brazil, one cup a day and it's heaven.
