    Ive used my BCG450 with a dripper - cant remember the brand. While the 450 is too course for good espresso I found it ample for a dripper. Dont go too fine or it will block up, but practise will tell you that.

    Also make sure you use freshly roasted beans as with everything. I found the taste a bit lacking (weak and under-"extracted"), possibly because of the slightly inconsistent grind from the grinder, possibly because I didnt have enough time to experiment, possibly because I was using an espresso roast, not a dripper/plunger blend. I only tried a couple of batches.

    Let us know how you go!

    I use a Breville BCG450 at work to grind for my Clever Coffee Dripper brews and does a good job. The grinder is set to the Fine (Filter) setting which appears to be about right for the CCD.

    Im sure you will find it adequate for your Breville coffee maker. Just make sure you buy good fresh coffee beans
