wife has the Capresso Infinity burr grinder, loves it. She does pour-over. I got it for her 4 years ago, holding up fine.

I have this as my French press/pour over machine. Sits in the cupboard mainly, but it's never let me down either. The baratza is more consistent, but it's a bit more $$$ too.

I've been using mine for ~2 years and it's still going strong. Use it for pour over and espresso and it doesn't a great job for both.

Do you dial your grind everyday between pour Over and espresso? I would hate doing that and would just rather buy a second grinder for pour over.

Not only do I have to dial my grind between pour over and espresso, but I have to dial it between decaf espresso and regular espresso :rofl:

For the most part it's always the same though. 20 for pour over, 6 for decaf espresso, and 8 for regular espresso.

I have a Breville SmartGrind, I like the fact it has preset grind times, pour the whole bag in and g2g.
