To request a coffee serving, simply place the filter holder in the space that corresponds to the desired
serving (right for single serving, left for double serving). When using the grinder for the first time, or any time
it is completely empty, request the serving three times so the dispenser fills properly and to ensure you
obtain the correct serving.
!
Warning:
- Do not pour ground coffee into the beans
hopper.
- If you are using the grinder to grind continuously, let it
rest every 30 minutes to avoid overheating.

Note: Grinding point
To change the grinding point significantly, turn the knob at least one full rotation.
Never turn the knob in the fine direction (clockwise) more than 1 full rotation without grinding again, as this could
lead to a blockage in the grinder.
