Interior Features
  • As part of the Cool Grind series, the 503 from CAPRESSO can grind coffee beans up to their finest possible texture while still keeping cool. Cooling, in the case of coffee makers, is not only about making sure the user is not burnt but is also about keeping the aroma and the flavor in.
  • Operation can easily be stopped by one press of a button. This is good for emergencies.

    Exterior Features

  • The CAPRESSO Cool Grind 503 has a large capacity. It can store several ounces of coffee beans at one time. This is to ensure that the owner does not have to load the grinder with beans every time one load has been grounded. The coffee grinder can also produce a maximum of 15 cups at one time.
  • The clear, see-through safety lid allows the user to see the coffee texture without lifting the lid. This feature is designed to provide the user the convenience of choosing to put the coffee under another cycle of grinding if the texture is still coarse for his or her taste.
  • The housing is both sophisticated and functional. The shiny, modern look provides the sophistication while the stainless steel material provides the durability and strength.
