Why the Breville Smart Grinder?
Making perfect coffee starts with a precise dose of freshly ground beans. How do you get the amount you need for the grind you select? The Smart Grinder with Dosing IQ automatically calibrates each dose every time you adjust the grind.
The Breville BCG800X Smart Grinder has a backlit LCD screen that clearly shows grind setting, number of cups or shots, and customized grind amount. A removable grinds catcher catches grinds that spill over, and the cord wraps around the base for easier storage. All parts that come into contact with coffee are BPA free. Smart grinder accessories include two portafilter cradles (one large 58mm and one small 50/54mm), grind container with sealing cap, and a cleaning brush for the conical burrs.
Tips for Optimal Performance
- Fresh grinds are key to making the best possible coffee and espresso.
- Avoid dark and and oily beans that can often lead to clogging the grind at its finest setting.
- Grind beans in small batches.
- Do not store beans in the bean hopper for a protracted period.
Breville BCG800XL Smart Grinder Features:
Dosing IQ technology automatically calibrates each dose every time the grind settings are adjusted, so you have precisely the amount of grinds needed no matter how fine or coarse the grind size.
The BCG800XL Smart Grinder bean hopper has a capacity of 1 pound, with an air-tight lid and locking system. The hopper is removable from the grinder base, so can easily be used to store beans at the correct temperature.
Precise grind settings
Different types of coffee preparation and different kinds of machines require different sizes. Choose from 25 precise grind settings from the finest espresso to the coarsest French press grind.
Hands-free grinding allows you to grind directly into a portafilter, grinds container, gold tone filter basket or paper filter, for more efficient grinding.
Unlike blade grinders, the BCG800XL’s stainless steel conical burrs minimize grinding heat to protect the essential oils in the coffee bean.
Want a little bit more ground coffee? Want a bit less? The Smart Grinder also allows you to manually adjust the preset amount calculated by Dosing IQ to suit your personal taste.
