The Capresso Cool Grind Blade Coffee Grinder is ideal for drip coffee makers, French press and percolators. The large stainless steel grinding chamber reduces heat build up to preserve more of the coffee’s flavor and aroma. It also does an excellent job for grinding spices and herbs. Grinding fresh whole bean coffee immediately before brewing is the first step to achieving the best tasting coffee at home. Ground coffee interacts with the air around it and, within hours, loses a great deal of flavor and aroma. The longer the ground coffee is exposed to air the more flavor is lost and the rich, full-bodied taste of the coffee cannot be obtained.
