Question about Cuisinart Supreme Grind DBM-8 Electric Burr Grinder
I've had machine for 8+ years. Gave to a friend then got a new one, which doesn't grind coffee very fine. On finest setting I get flakes of coffee which just don't work in espresso machine.
The best solution I have was referred to me by a mate of mine who services commercial coffee machines.
Step 1. Remove the base of the grinder... this is actually the hardest aspect of this task... as there is one tamper-proofing screw... if you can't get the correct star-hex screw driver I recommend drilling the screw out.
Step 2. Once the base is off you will see the main shaft of the grinders motor. The shaft has a star washer set in behind hew nut, the end of the shaft has a slot cut into for a flat bladed screwdriver. Hold the nut with a pair of pliers & you can adjust the shaft positioning (& hence the burr attached to the motor) by about 3mm....
You will need to experiment to find the correct level of fineness as you require.
If you need further information send me an e-mail as I'd be happy to forward more detailed instructions.

Take out the bean chute, remove the burr from the bottom. Then cut a business card the size of the burr and use it as a spacer between the burr and bean chute. This will space you burrs closer together giving you a finer grind. If there is a squealing sound the burrs are touching and need to be back off a bit.

Grinding setting is one
simple operation but requires bit patience:
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.
