Background and Identification
The Breville BCG800XL Smart Grinder is a coffee grinder with a conical burr that uses Breville’s Dosing IQ technology to automatically adjust the dose of coffee whenever the user changes the grind. Users can choose between ‘cups’ for French press or filtered coffee or ‘shots’ for espresso, and the grinder chooses the right dose depending on the grind setting.
Users can choose between automatic and manual grinding modes and can adjust the grind using a wheel on the side of the machine. Users can view and change their selection using the liquid crystal display (LCD). The grinder includes an ‘Adjust Amount’ knob that can adjust the dosing if users prefer stronger or weaker brews. It also includes an ‘Amount’ button that allows users to choose between one and five shots of espresso or one to twelve cups of coffee. The ‘Start/Cancel’ button can be used to begin or stop the grinding process. To manually grind coffee beans, press and hold the ‘Start/Cancel’ button.
The Breville Smart Grinder model BCG800XL was sold in a silver color and includes a digital display. The grinder can hold up to 450 grams of coffee beans and features 25 different grind settings. According to a review of the BCG800XL model from Whole Latte Love, 25 grind settings might not be enough for users who prefer micro-adjusting their grind fineness.
