Slightly off topic - for those interested in trying a burr grinder but don't want to over commit, I recommend trying a manual (hand-powered) burr grinder first. I got an off brand one from Amazon (probably some China made brand) for like $25 and it's served me well for the past year. The coffee grind comes out pretty consistent and even my french press taste great. I used to go to McDonald's but now I just stay home and make my own because honestly it tastes better.

And then when you're ready, I guess move up to these electric ones? Personally I don't mind the daily grind (pun intended), it's only a minute or two of hand spinning. Bonus exercise even.
RFD: Pick any two.

Wondering if I should upgrade to this from the Bodum burr grinder I've had for 3 months...

Maybe I should just save up for the Baratza Encore. I don't know!

What's wrong with the Bodum? Mine has been reliable in the almost 8 years of using it daily.

For those who bought. How much space is there from the discharge chute to the bottom? Just wanna see how big of a container can fit under there? Right now grinding into one of those reclosable instant coffee container thing so hoping that will fit under this.

You're right, the Timemore C2 @ $100 and the 1Zpresso JX @ $180 (better build quality than the Timemore) would be great choices. If you want to use your grinder for espresso too, get the 1Zpresso JX-PRO @ $218.

Bodum burr isn't a bad grinder for the price (especially when on sale). For drip coffee and such it's fine and no sense "upgrading" unless you're unhappy with the bodum.

I've debated the same, but the bodum has served me well for ~5 years, and I think I paid like $60 for it.

I should have added to my last post, sorry - given the open design of the front you can grind directly into your filter (or filter in brew basket, if it's removable) or your own container.

~11cm of space under the discharge chute, and you can also remove the drip tray to add ~3cm more.

you grind directly into your filter, container, or portafilter (but would not actually advise using this one for espresso)

no, would not consider this a real upgrade. for all applications but espresso, the bodum and this level of grinder are good, and pretty similar

this will easily fit up to a 32oz container, but will depend upon shape. the height is good, but not crazy tall. the offset of the chute from the machine gives you a fair amount of space to play with, but you may find yourself angling the receptacle in under the spout.
there will still be static issues, depending on the bean and receptacle used.

i have been using this as my main, non-espresso grinder in the house and am quite happy with the results.

setting the dose and pushing the button to get the same, repeated dose is super handy in the morning. i have used this for french press, drip, pourover, and re-usable keurig.
once you find the amount per dose that gives you the coffee you want, it is pretty much foolproof.
the only adjustments needed might be between beans, if you switch varietals or significant roast differences

This is very promising! How much maintenance is required with the grinder, how often do you clean it?

because i don't have it set particularly fine, and don't use darker roasts with more oily beans, there has been almost no maintenance needed.

the burrs have not had enough cycles to need adjustment, and cleaning with a product such as 'grindz' has not yet been necessary. if you are attempting espresso/turkish grind, or really use oily beans, then ymmv.

no noticeable degradation in 2+ years of use. . .knock on wood,

Thanks OP. I ordered last night in Barrie and just got back from picking it up. I accidentally ordered it from the south end location where it was $240 but managed to cancel the order and switch to the north location for the right price.

As I would expect from a store clearance, the box for mine had a bunch of dust on it. I'm looking forward to using it (the grinder, not the dust).

I just moved from the Bodum grinder to this Breville I bought last night. For me it was worth the upgrade:

- Anecdotal, but it seems like at espresso grind, the Breville can go a little more fine and consistent.
- The fine tuning of grind level is very useful
- The ability to stop and start a timed grind is nice.
- A lot less messier as I can grind straight into my portafilter or drip filter. I found static in the bodum glass to be a pain
- My bodum is orange. I've had it for about a decade and the rubberized finish gets REALLY dirty and impossible to clean. Ends up feeling really sticky. It was looking pretty gnarly at the end of it even though it still works okay.

No clue if it’s worth the upgrade but my Bodum burr started to have a loud grinding sound. I opened it up last night and looks like a screw came loose and hitting the gears to turn the burr. I tightened it up and it’s “less noisy” now but still a loud grinder (but that doesn’t bother me).

It was mentioned, but i believe worth repeating : activate your CT Triangle point offer.

I had 20$ back on anything over 80$! Made me pull the trigger!

Thanks op and everyone for their answers. Got the 2nd last one at Airdrie and at the same time a employee was picking the last one for a online order. So Airdrie officially sold out.

If anyone in Calgary is looking for this, let me know. I got one of the last one(s).

I fixed my Bodum last night so I don't need it.

At cost $151.13

Otherwise I might just cancel and someone will get it eventually since it looks like all of Calgary is Out of Stock now.
