60 Grind Settings: 60 precise grind fineness settings provide ultimate versatility, making the BCG820BSSX suitable for all of your coffee grinding needs from drip through espresso. We tested the Smart Grinder Pro here at Espresso Zone, and found that it could even grind fine enough for commercial style espresso machines; we were able to pull a thick, creamy shot on our Rancilio Silvia, then quickly change the setting to brew drip coffee.
Backlit LCD Screen: Provides all the information regarding your current grind settings, including the grind fineness (with ranges noted for various common brewing methods), grind time and cups/shots setting.
Large Coffee Bean Hopper: Holds 1 lb. of coffee beans, and is easily removed for cleaning.
