Graef coffee grinder CM 800
The CM 800 electric coffee grinder from Graef is a high-quality entry-level model for the home. It is suitable for filter coffee and espresso, but we recommend it especially for espresso beginners, because in this price segment it is the only one with a high-quality aluminum housing and included filter holder. In addition, the performance is very constant, especially with fine grinding stages, and is more than suitable for espresso. We find: A unique combination.
The grinder is equipped with a stainless steel cone grinding mechanism, which is electronically regulated to grind more quietly and gently. This not only reduces the volume considerably, but also prevents the grinder from heating up, which would lead to a loss of aroma in the coffee. The grinder is also visually impressive: its aluminum housing makes a very high-quality impression. With its compact, space-saving design, it fits into any kitchen. Rubber studs attached to the base additionally ensure a firm stand.
Finding the optimal grinding degree can be so easy
The CM 800 lets you choose from 40 different grind settings: From coarse to fine – filter coffee to espresso. The grind is adjusted simply by turning the aluminium mill neck. The scale below the bean container shows the selected setting.
You can choose between two operating modes: „ON/OFF“ mode and „AUTO“ mode. In the first of the two modes, the machine grinds from switching on to manual switching off. To do this, flip the switch on the right side of the grinder. With the auto function for sieve racks, the coffee can always be ground fresh on demand directly into the sieve rack. The CM 800 grinds only then and only as long as the contact switch on the front side of the grinder is operated.
The CM 800 impresses with its scope of delivery and solid functionality
The Graef CM 800 coffee grinder is also included in the scope of delivery: A coffee container for 250 g, a bean container, a small as well as large sieve holder, a storage mat, a cleaning brush and the filling funnel. The sieve holder holders are particularly noteworthy, because if you are an espresso lover, you can grind directly into the sieve holder.
Another very useful feature of the grinder is the self-closing bean container: when you want to remove it, it closes automatically so that no beans can fall out at the bottom. This is particularly practical for cleaning the grinder or for changing the beans.
All in all, the Graef CM 800 is an easy-to-use and solid electric coffee grinder, which convinces with its simple design and good performance.
