2. The bean container (6) will hold about 8 oz. (225 g.) of coffee beans. Place beans in container and replace cover (7) to preserve the
beans’ freshness.
3. There are 34 grinding positions that correspond from “very coarse” (position 34) to “very fine” (position 1). Select the correct grinding
position (9) for your coffee maker by grasping the container and turning to the left or to the right stopping at the appropriate number.
Selecting Coffee coarseness:
1. Using freshly ground coffee is the best way to make a deliciouscup of coffee. The grinding coarseness of the coffee depends on the
machine that you are using.
2. Espresso pump-machines require a fine grind, typically somewhere between position 5 to 10. You may have to experiment with the
degree of fineness that is best for your espresso machine. (If coffee flows too fast grind may be too coarse - if coffee flows very slowly,
coffee grind may be too fine). Refer to your espresso machine instructions for more information.
3. Different kinds of coffee beans may require different settings. Blends are composed of several coffee beans having different
characteristics of roasting and hardness. The grinding position may have to be changed to give you the best results.
4. Suggestion: When grinding coffee beans for the first time, grind only enough to make 2 cups. Adjust grinding position as required for
the proper flow of coffee.
1. After selecting grinding position, turn “on” by depressing switch (1) IMPORTANT: Grind only as much coffee needed each time because
ground coffee will loose its flavor and become stale.
