How to Clean Capresso Infinity Burr Grinders

The Capresso Infinity burr grinder is designed to custom-grind your coffee beans to perfection.

The Infinity grinder uses conical steel burrs and a slow grinding speed for quiet performance and optimal aroma retention. With regular use, the Capresso Infinity burr grinder builds up coffee oil and debris and, when left to sit, it can turn rancid. Clean the burrs periodically, and the grinding chamber on a daily basis to keep your coffee fresh-tasting and aromatic.

Turn off and unplug the grinder. Wait for it to cool completely before cleaning.

Turn the upper bean container counterclockwise until the black dot moves past the "Coarse" grind setting. Lift it up and off of the machine.

Remove the lid from the bean container, and lift the burr and soft collar out of the machine.

Brush the burr, grinding chamber and inside of the feeding channel with the cleaning brush to remove any coffee debris. Push the debris from inside the feeding channel into the ground coffee container below with the brush.

Fill a sink with warm water, and add 2 tsp. of dish detergent. Place the ground coffee container, bean container and lid into the sink.

Wash the containers and lid thoroughly with a sponge, and rinse them with clean water.

Dry the containers and lid completely with a towel.

Wipe the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth to remove any residue or debris.

Place the upper burr and soft collar into the grinding chamber.

Set the bean container onto the grinding chamber, turning it slightly until it sits securely in place.

Place the lid on the bean container, and slide the ground coffee container into place at the bottom of the grinder.

Plug in the coffee grinder.
