How do I remove beans from the machine?

I want to remove the beans already in the machine and replace them with a different kind eg. Decaf beans. I don't want to mix the beans and just top up the bean container. My hand cannot fit in to get them out, maybe there is some kind of small vacumm gadget that will not render the removed beans inedible?

How to fix jura not coffee sign?


It is wanting grounds dropped into the trap door on top. If you open that trap door there is a sensor on the hindge that causes it to expect ground coffee to be dropped in there. This is how you would make a decaf cup with caffeine beans in it or flavored with regular bean in the grinder.
Check to make sure the door is closed. It should return to "ready" in about 10 seconds. If not cycle the power by pushing the on/off button or pull the plug.

Not a problem more of a question. Is the Franke evolution espresso machine a water processed machine? Also what does that mean for it to be water processed? THnak yOu


the evolution is a super automatic ,im not sure what you mean by water processed? but i do know you need water with a low ppm of hardness or you risk ruining the machine. water processed refers to the way beans are prepared, usually decaf.

Keeps saying fill beans container when already full


The machine understant that there is not any beans in the container by the mesuring how easily the grinder motor rotates. If there is not any beans in the grinder motor rotates freely. In your case means that the beans from container are blocked to enter down to the grinders disk plates or they partialt enter, so the motor runs more freely and machine understant that there ae not enough beens. So you need to remove the beans and container and by the use of a vaccum cleaner remove all remainings from the grinders entrance and funel. You can also use a brush to remove any coffe oils and remianing so the bean can easily slide inside the grinder.

The bean grinder doesnt grind, only water comes out


If it is working before, probably the coffee chute is clogged up. You can remove the bean hopper and see where the coffee drop into the brew unit.If the chute is still attached just clean the blockage, if it is broken you will have to remove the grinder and replaced it.

Grinder is not functioning, apparently, resultant brew is between tan and clear.


HOw oily are the beans you are using ? cause oily beans will clogg up the grinder causing none or little to come out. Try running some really dry beans threw decaf beans are generally drier than most. If the amount of coffeee being ground doesnt increase then the grinder will have to be taken apart and cleaned out.

Want to have a coffee using the 2nd coffee grind dispenser


no one has helped me yet. It made a half cup, but I think that may have been a fluke. The 2nd time I tried it to fill up 1 cup of decaf, it again failed. I just can't find my manual.sigh...

Heat


Hey Nashville,

I have a few suggestions/questions for you. I've had the Innova(Ascaso) Dream for several years now and use it at least twice daily. I would trust your own senses before sweating the gauges too much. If you're really worried about it being a temperature problem, my first question is whether or not the espresso is actually hot when it comes out.

But my best guess is honestly your beans and grinder (or lack thereof). The problem with using pre-ground beans is that even on the day you open the can, they won't be nearly as fresh as truly fresh ground beans you grind yourself. And the problem gets dramatically worse every day after they are opened.

The key to a thick, crema-laden espresso is very fresh beans that you grind right before making your espresso. You can certainly confirm that the machine is working with any old coffee grinder and a bag of *really* fresh beans from a local roaster.

You really need all the oils that come with really fresh-roasted and fresh-ground beans. And the beans really need to be ground very fine for espresso.

I keep a can of pre-ground Illy decaf beans around for the rare occasions I need to make a decaf, and it's like night a day between that and what I drink daily.

If you try the fresh beans and grind them yourself and can see the obvious difference, then you may want to invest in a good-quality burr grinder (as opposed to the spinning blade kind that most folks use for drip coffee). The reason is that with a burr grinder you can get consistently-sized particles every time. So once you get the setting right on your grinder you can keep pumping out the shots time after time. With a rotary blade grinder you get some big pieces, some little pieces and the water flows through too easily -- or you grind it longer and (1) burn the beans from the heat, and (2) end up with some particles that are just too small -- essentially dust, that will actually clog the process.

So, my best suggestion would be to find a local cafe/roaster and buy a half a pound of beans from them and grind yourself. If you don't have a grinder or want to eliminate a variable, ask them to grind it for you for an espresso machine.

Again, if you can see the difference (and I think you will), then you can consider getting yourself a good grinder.

Good luck!

Tony

Magic Comfort machine won't make one cup of decaf coffee


Make sure to use pre-ground coffee only (MEDIUM
ground) and not soluble coffee.
Question- check to see where the coffee is going- did it end up in the brew group- but you did not get coffee? Then, the filter is clogged. Clean the filter. If you have used oily beans, they can clog filter easily.

Incanto de Luxe always tells me there are no beans in container


I do have the same problem.

I have removed and cleaned the grinder mechanism.

Being an electronic technician I did have a look and tried to find what method they use to detect that the new beans reservoir is empty and I did not see any kind of detector.

I suspect that they monitor the motor current to do this. If it is so would'n it be possible to desable this fonction since it is more then evident when the reservoir is empty or about to be?

Any body knows how they do monitor the status of the new beans reservoir?
