Howdy. I'm going to take one for the team on this one and tell you what I found out from Bosch. They say nothing is ever to be put in the coffee grinder area except coffee. They understand that while it is a popular home grinder tip to clean with rice, that does not include integrated coffee systems like the Benvenuto. Sadly, they went on to tell me that they had no suggestions at all for removing the residue from the workings of the machine. I had thought that eventually, over time, it might rinse away. am very sorry to deliver this news and hope someone somewhere has a better answer for you.
Best regards,

I was trying to clean my coffee grinder and when I took the bottom off a clear plastic came out and I can't get it back in.

see the steps:God bless you
  • Unplug the coffee grinder and wipe out as much residue as possible with a paper towel or clean cloth.
  • 2 Plug in the grinder. Add a little dry, uncooked rice to the grinder and turn on the grinder. Grind the rice until the grinder no longer has an odor or until the rice is finely ground. Repeat this step if necessary.
  • 3 Unplug the grinder and remove the ground rice completely. Wipe again with a paper towel or clean cloth.
  • 4 Hand wash any removable lid to the coffee grinder with dishwashing liquid. Allow to air dry.
  • 5 Clean the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth or paper towel

    Have a grinder and it is full of coffee and stuck. It seems the beans were more oily and now I am trying to figure out how to clean it out. Please help

    • Try to grind all the beans through.
    • Put some uncooked rice inside the hopper and grind it, it is very good at cleaning if you don't have Grindz. Get Grindz if you can to grind and clean the burrs.
    • Try to take the grinder apart and brush off and clean off the burrs by hand.

    Cleaning burrs of oily residue

    There are many ways to clean oily residue from your burrs. You can order a grinder cleaning tablet from online stores called Grinds by Urnex. Some people use white rice but if you don't get it all out you will have rice in your coffee. You can take them apart and clean them manually but if you don't reassemble it correctly you will not get a good grind. I think the easiest way is to get some cheap light roasted beans ( doesn't matter if they are old ) but never use shiny beans because shiny beans have lots of oil.
    Set the grinder to a very coarse setting, on a Rocky 7 higher that you currently use. You can turn it to a larger # any time but it has to be grinding to turn it to a lower #. Pour a cup of cleaner (beans, or rice) into the bean hopper and turn the grinder on. Grind the whole hopper through the machine. If you use grinds just a couple of #'s higher is all you need. Once you have cleaned the burrs you will need to grind some of you beans to purg the cleaning debris for the burrs and chamber. When you see no more cleaning compound you can turn the hopper back to where it was leaving the motor run. Once you get it back test with your beans.

    I clean with rice and it grinds coffee beans. Then I have to grind moRE RICE TO GET IT TO GRIND COFFEE AGAIN

    Instead of rice, fill container about half full with regular table sugar. Grind that for 10-20 seconds. You should not only get coffee flavored powdered sugar but the sugar will soak up the flavors from your grinder.
    Then simply clean as you normally would. Works great!

    H owdo you clean the machine using the tablet ? Thanks

    1. Turn machine off.
    2. remove group head (portafilter)
    3. place single or dual cup filter in group head.
    4. place rubber bung in group head.
    5. place one tablet in space in bung.
    6. replace group head in machine.
    7. This is where the instructions lead you astray.
    9. Press & hold 1 & 2 cup buttons simultaneously, on their own.
    10. Now press the power button while still holding the 1 & 2 cup buttons.
    11. Cleaning cycle will start, and will take around 5 mins to complete. Book says it will beep 3 times when finished haven't heard this yet. Just wait a couple of minutes extra and all should be well.
    12. Clean me light should be out and tablet disolved if not repeat steps again until tablet disolves.

    Burrs spin but no grinding

    Try this, remove the bean hopper, and vac out the burr chamber, then put 1 tablespoon white rice in the burr chamber and cover with hand and turn grinder on, if the rice grinds, then your grind might have been set too fine. Turn the grinder towards fine until you can barely turn the burr nut, you will feel them touching, then turn course about 16 notches (do not use numbers, use the small notches around the rim), that should give you a great starting point for your grind.

    Coffee does not go from grind to brew basket. Plugs..must clean every time

    Try running some unflavored panko breadcrumbs or rice through it. That will clean it up and remove any oil that's causing sticking. Try to use less oily coffee in the future to avoid this.

    How can I clean my Gaggia burr coffee grinder?

    For parts you can see, use an artists paintbrush. If you want to clean the internals, grind some panko breadcrumbs or raw rice grains, then run some coffee through it a few times before using.

    I have a gaggia syncrony logic.The coffee beans are not going to the grinder so the grinder is just spinning,we have cleaned the machine and cant tell if something is stuck in it or what. cand you help?

    This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
    a. Pour all the beans out the top.
    b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
    c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
    d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
    e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).
