Lightning deal @ Amazon AU. Use AMAZON20 for an extra $20 off to bring the total down to $78.99. I believe this is the cheapest price ever for this model. Looks to be very similar to the Breville Smart Grinder Pro, but reviews I've seen favour the Breville over this one.

    FYI: This machine as rated by choice, came 7th place with 100% score on performance and 80% on grind control.

    1st place was the Breville, with 100/100

    It's still a decent price, and if my machine didn't have an inbuilt grinder I'd probably choose this. Otherwise at RRP definitely the Breville over this one.

      Thanks for the info.

        If your not getting the Smart Grinder Pro under $200 its not worth it IMO, I run it paired with a dual boiler and whilst it does a decent job.
        I would say that the grinder is letting the espresso machine down in terms of grind control. Has good dose amounts and doesn't hold much in the burrs when changing settings but only 30 settings is never enough. Needs another step or 4 in between the settings… which can be had in prosumer machines around the ~400 dollar mark.

          You should be able to get it under $200.
          The smart grinder pro can change the grind up or down more than the 30 settings. You have to Manually adjust the conical burrs.

          The Breville the Smart Grinder Pro, grind to very very fine. I found it even too fine as my coffee was dripping instead of flowing from my DeLonghi Dedica Pump Espresso - EC 685W. I have adjusted it to 15 now. And it is on the quiet side too.

      •  

        Sorry, yes it was the smart Grider pro that came first.

      •  

        Spice grinders are awful for coffee as they use blades instead of burrs, meaning the beans don't get ground small enough and they're very inconsistent. It's probably no better than buying pre-ground beans.

        The best bet would be the Smart Grinder Pro, which goes on sale reasonably regularly for $160-$180.

        Thanks all.

        Just realised the machine the other half wants is the Breville BES870BSS, which has an inbuilt grinder. For the 1 or 2 cups of coffee she will be making per day I assume that the inbuilt will be sufficient?

        • +1 vote

          Yes, more than sufficient I believe. The seperate grinder is more suited for machines that don't feature built in grinders. My friend has the same machine you are after, and I haven't been disappointed by his coffee, just his choice of beans. You can have the best coffee machine and the best grinder, but if those beans aren't good, than it makes no difference.

    Can this be used to grind cocoa?

    Reviews on Amazon US indicate it's not good for espresso since it doesn't have a fine enough grind setting. Sticking to my ceramic burr hand mill for now :(

    Matches my machine…

    Bought 1, cheers OP…

  •  

    Thanks OP!

    Just waiting espresso maker now :)

  •  

    How you search for lighting deals on Amazon?

  •  

    Can someone tell me when the pump expresso is on sale

  •  

    Good price, I can confirm it is no good for expresso. I purchased a few months ago with the matching dedica expresso machine. Does ok on the finest setting but only because the dedica expresso uses pressurised baskets meaning you don’t need to control the grind as much for back pressure. I sold on gumtree, I would recommend get the breville smart grinder at minimum for expresso.

      Thanks for the review, but it’s espresso not expresso :)

    •  

      I just received mine from this deal and can confirm it does not grind nearly as fine as my Breville Smart Grinder Pro. I bought it for work, so I guess I'll use it for my Aeropress as it's too coarse for the espresso machine here.

  •  

    bought, tks OP!

    $78.99, can't go too wrong with that amount of money.

  •  

    Damn I bought the Breville Smart Grinder for $159!

  •  

    Deal over? price back to $199

  •  

    Have owned this grinder for six months, works fine grinding beans for expresso, i use it set at number 2-3 all good. Definitely a bargain at this price.Has worked well with any brand beans i have tried.

  •  

    You would reckon DeLonghi, being an Italian brand, would be suitable for Espresso.
    Thats what nearly everyone would want.

  •  

    Thanks to OP. Bought one. Great price.

  •  

    Got it! Thanks OP. Hope it will go good with my Breville BES840.

  •  

    It also depends on the beans you’re grinding too ie dark vs light roasts - coarser vs finer grind. Also if you have a pressurised or non pressurised basket (less forgiving).
