Breville - BCG820BSS - The Smart Grinder Pro $159.20 + Delivery (Free with eBay Plus/C&C) @ Bing Lee eBay

Original Coupon Deal

Ozbargainers favourite grinder.

The perfect coffee needs a precise amount of freshly ground beans. But adjustments in grind size require different grind times to achieve a consistent dose.

Breville's conical burr Smart GrinderTM uses Dosing IQ technology to automatically adjust the dose whenever you change the grind. Choose between 'cups' for French press or Filter, and 'shots' for Espresso to get the right dose for your coffee's needs. You can even tweak for taste.

The Smart GrinderProTM still has an LCD display, 450g removable hopper, and comes with two grinding cradles for dosing directly into 50-54mm or 58mm commercial espresso filters. In addition, there's an air-tight storage canister, suitable for plunger or filter coffee.

  • was waiting for this one, thought Myer might have it but was listed at 299 there haha even with their discount still way overpriced.

    Just bought and was going to post this deal. Anyone use this with the Breville Bambino Plus and have the best settings for it?

  • Can anyone using this with the Delonghi Dedica Espresso Coffee machine recommend the optimum setting?

    • play around with the espresso setting
      it will vary, and it should not be set and forget because of the following:
      the type of beans you use
      the type of roast the beans are
      the temperature of the room
      how hard to tamp the grind

  • Thanks for the post OP, I got one as a gift for the missus.

  • Just bought before seeing this post, thought I should post here but you beat me to it.

    I have a Mazzer Mini but have been eyeing this due to it's more consistent settings. Hopefully it will stay cleaner than the Mazzer as well. Has anyone else made a similar move?

    • I thought the Mazzer being a specialist brand would be better.

      • My thoughts exactly - it's like someone with a DSLR eyeing a point'n'shoot in hope that a would produce better results.

        • Well I did have a Nikon DSLR and sold that to move to mirrorless and happy so far. I won't sell the mazzer yet, but auto settings on the breville look good. I'll try to post my review when I get it.

          • @haji: Let me refine my analogy - the full-size Mazzer is the DSLR, the Mazzer Mini is the mirrorless and the Breville is the point'n'shoot - a very good one but still a downgrade from what you have.

            Presets are good for beginners but I always adjust my grinder settings until I get that perfect pour.

  • Smart Grinder Pro + Delonghi Dedica vs. Breville BES878? I read on a forum in which a coffee snob said a grinder makes the coffee not the machine.

    • Why would you need a grinder when you have a 878?

      • Curious as well.

      • They're asking which produces better coffee

        Smart Grinder Pro paired with a Delonghi Dedic
        OR
        Breville BES878

        • I've used a few Delonghis and hated them. I generally endorse Breville's new range of machines for most home users. A friend just bought the Barista Pro and I was blown away by the thoughtfulness in design. The only issue (for me) is that although it's a bigger portafilter, it's not a commercial size one. I wish they had just upped it a little bit to increase compatibility with other things.

          If you're going for a coffee machine under $1k, I'd generally recommend either the Rancilio Silvia, one of the upper-end Brevilles (or on a reallllllly good sale the Dual Boiler), or potentially a Lelit, though they aren't the greatest. The Breville Barista Pro has a really nice feature set for the cost, and is a great size for benches. Particularly in an apartment.

    • I read on a forum about a coffee snob that was a bit grumpy in the morning. He then made a coffee for himself and then was a grumpy coffee snob with a coffee.

    • Definitely correct.
      Grinder is more important than the machine

  • Amazon's lowered their price for this at $168.20. With CB, will save you a couple of dollars.

  • I've had this for a few years. I'd absolutely recommend it. I'd love if they switched it over to ceramic burrs, but this thing is so versatile and handy. I use it with a Rancilio Silvia and a 22g VST basket on a bottomless portafilter. I aim for roughly 9.6-10 secs at grind size of 9-11 most of the time with Single O Yeehah blend beans, do a knockdown, and dose again at the same setting. Gives around 24-25g (I like to overdose the shot). My sister bought the Malkohnig/Bezzera Vario for much more. I hated using it - the belt drive meant you could only really change the grind settings while in use, and even then it was annoying. It died after less than 2 years, and she switched to this same grinder and loves it. If you need a grinder for any kind of coffee, it's worth it.

    • In a similar boat.

      Across two dwellings we have a Breville 920 and a Rancilio Silvia as coffee machines + Rancilio Rocky and Breville (Smart) as the grinders.

      I prefer the Breville 920 and Rancilio Rocky as a pair (Canberra) - but space constraints mean that it is the Rancilio Silvia and Breville Smart doing duty in the smaller of the two kitchens (Melbourne).

      For an inexpensive grinder the Breville punches about its weight AND it takes up far less room than many of the grinders that do a better job. As Radiopej says, better burrs would make this a killer machine!

      The Rancilio Silvia is not a cheap machine and is less tolerant of my inadequacies as a coffee maker - but it too has a small footprint making it the easy choice in a smaller kitchen.
