The larger the number the larger the grinds will be. Make sure you always change the number while grinding and allow 3 cups before changing the number again. It takes 3 cups to remove the old coffee from inside the grinder.

Hope this helps you out.

Why when grinder is on finest setting


Did you clean the grinder before using it? Did you run a 1/2 kilo or so of junk beans through to clean out any oil/grease that was in the system from manufacture? How old are the coffee beans? If you grind at a 4 and run it through the drip machine, does the coffee still taste off?

I have a mazzer luigi coffee grinder on which set is the best coffee you get


grinding setting is one simple operation but requires a bit patience:
1 turn on your grinder and continue setting to fine while burrs are spinning, you stop when you hear metal to metal touch sound(burrs maximally closed finest ginding) 2 from that point go back quarter of revolution and mark the spot where you stopped with marker to body of grinder and setting plate with one line 3 grind little amount of coffee only to fill one sector of dosser than test it at your machine(if it leaks too fast and with yellow color of cream you should go to more fine>><< if it does not leak from the filter holder or it leaks very slow you go to in opposite way. 4 you test grinding few times bit after each reset of plate grind little amount and take that in one other pot (that will provide to have pure new granulation) 5 after setting measure the grinded coffee that come out from doser it should be about 7 grams, better measurement you can get if you measure 10 doses in one place because you don't get never same amount from 6 sectors of doser.
PS: the pump pressure of coffee machine should be from 8 to 10 bar and steam pressure should be from 1.1 to 1.5 bar> depends on type of coffees you use.

Makes a lot of noise, but it doesn't gind coffee, none comes throgh


it can be 3 problems: 1 bearings old and noisy(i dont belive it it the case) 2 seting of grinding to very fine 2 trifase motor problem
solution1 you change bearings solution 2 : becouse of fine setting you have problem with output of grinded coffee>> you need to release for quorter or half revolution the setting plate and turn it on(before you do that mark the place you are at the moment with setting plate) solution 3 Trifase motors change the rotation when we change the place of 2 fases and it spins in wrong way. check the spinning and make sure that your grinder spins in way that should be spining, if he does not than simply change the rotation.
good luck

Just bought a used one, seems like the espresso grind is pretty course, is there an adjustment I can make?


To adjust this grinder turn the adjustment nob to the finest setting (ESPRESSO or TURKISH) Locate 2 small set screws on the adjusting nob. Loosen these screws (do not remove them) about one full turn. Start the grinder and, with it running, VERY SLOWLY and GRADUALLY, turn the CENTER adjustment screw clockwise until you begin to hear the burrs begin to touch (whirring sound). Back off the center screw about 1/16 of a turn, shut of grinder and re-tighten the set screws. Then try the grind on DRIP or there about for brewed coffee.

Zassenhaus knee coffee mill grinds too coarsely


I have a Zass and sometimes have a problem with it self adjusting, but when I do need to adjust it, I find that I have give it a good tap on the top to make sure it adjusts. So, just turn the knob counter clockwise as far as it will go, then give it a good knock on the top and bottom and try again. My mill offers the full grinding range, from a fine powder to large chunks.

Long time for drip coffee.


Grinder is set to too fine. Lower grinder settings. Keeping the machine at current settings with drip extraction will result in brew group clogging, gear stripping, and/or dulling of grinder burrs.

Grind setting


This grinder is really pretty crappy, I have the same one. If you want anything less coarse, you will have to grind it multiple times. My Grandmother tried using this and it ended up spitting out a few half and whole beans even after grinding. The best you would end up getting would be a drip coffee grind.
