Our Saeco Vienna Superautomatica sounds like it's grinding beans but keeps running until the red 'bean' light comes on and we have to shut the machine off. Any suggestions?


The grinder is timing out and stops if the beans do not enter the grinder. This happens because:
1- The grinder outlet is clogged and fresh beans cannot pass through the burrs.
2- The grind setting is too fine and helping clogging in the grinding chamber or the ground coffee outlet.
3- Operator may have been using dark roast oily beans. Like it or not, the dark roast oily beans do not make stronger espresso. Please stop using such beans in fully automatic espresso machines.
4- The grinder has already made over 2000 grinds and the burrs are blunted and not grinding beans as needed.
To solve this malfunction, clean the grinder. Make sure the grinder outlet to the doser is cleaned. This outlet passage is about 2 inches or more. To clean it, lay the machine on its back (water tank side) to allow better view of cleaning the doser and the passage of coffee from the grinder to the doser. Use the link below to find instructions for cleaning the grinder and replace the burrs.

Talea ring the grinder will not stop gringing


The Talea model is with a Ceramic grinder system. This can happen when the grinder outlet is clogged with coffee grounds. Fresh beans cannot enter the grinder as the outlet is clogged. Remember, the grinder in any machine is a grinder. It does not shovel the coffee grounds out and clean the outlet when it is clogged.
1- Check if the grind setting is too fine (powder like). If so change the setting to coarse. Fully automatic machines do not need fine grind. Keep the grind fineness like the table slat grain.
2- Check if the beans are dark roast and oily. Oily beans are a slow poison for any fully automatic machine. Change the beans to Non oily medium roast type.

When I try to make a coffee the griner sounds but it sounds like no beans are making it through to the grinder (it makes th esame sound as when the bean holder is empty) and the message shows to fill the...


This machine doesn't like oily, sticky beans. Most coffee beans purchased at a grocery store (even Starbucks or Peets - etc.) are roasted pretty dark with an oily sheen. Also most coffee beans from the store are very old - no matter how fresh they pretend to be. For example, at Safeway you will see a sign over the Peets coffee that says "roasted fresh, delivered daily" - that makes you think the beans are only a day or two old. But in reality they only remove the beans that are over 3 months old. The only way to get truely fresh roasted beans (unless you roast them yourself) is to find a roaster where you can buy beans that were roasted right there (many coffee shops pretend to be roasters but, in fact, they only buy more beans when they run out).

I have great luck buying beans directly from a roaster who will ship to me the same day they are roasted. RedBird Coffee has a delicious Espresso blend, the price is great and the beans are roasted just a little less dark so they are not oily and sticky. My Titanium works great with these beans. RedBird ships out the same day he roasts and you have your coffee about 2 days later. Very fresh.

In the meantime, you can lift the lid to the bean hopper and stir the beans with a popsicle stick or a chopstick and then they will grind for one or two coffees before you have to stir them again.

When choosing a coffee - don't buy Italian or French or Vienna roast - those dark roasts are oily and sticky. Ask for a Full City or Full City Plus roast - this is just slightly less dark than a Vienna Roast and shouldn't be oily looking. But freshness is still the key - any coffee beans that are several weeks past roasting day will start to become sticky and oily on the outside.

This is where I buy and I'll never go back to buying coffee at grocery store

It keeps saying that it is out of beans even though its not. I think it is having trouble grinding...


This machine doesn't work well with oily beans. Most coffee beans you buy at the supermarket are quite old and stale with sticky, rancid oil on the outside of the beans. Even if you are buying Starbucks or Peets and the sign makes it appear that it is fresh roasted, if you read the fine print you will see that the beans were roasted up to 90 days ago.

You want freshly roasted beans that are not roasted so dark that they are shiny and oily. Don't buy Italian or French roast as these are too oily. Get a FC or FC+ roast or lighter.

To workaround, until you get some less oily beans, you can stir the beans up with a chopstick so that they work their way down into the grinder. You will probably have to stir before each coffee and maybe even stir twice to make one coffee.

If you have a hard time finding a local roaster where you can buy freshly roasted beans that you like, I've been having wonderful luck with RedBird espresso blend. It works perfectly with this machine and produces a delicious espresso. RedBird roasts daily and ships daily, the price was very reasonable and I recieve my coffee two days after they are roasted. The roast date is printed on the bag. Just fantastic tasting coffee.

The shipping cost is low and the price for 1 pound is great - but if you buy 5 pounds the deal ends up being even better. You can divide up into quarter or half pound batches in ziplocks (or mason jars) and freeze them and just take out what you will use each week.

Good luck -- stir your beans for now and get yourself some fresh, non-oily coffee beans and you'll be grinding hassle free.

Grinder does not stop


I need more information to solve this.

If you mean the grinder just spins but doesn't seem to be grinding anything - and then after 30 seconds or so it tells you the bean hopper is empty - then the problem is sticky, oily beans that aren't sliding down into the grinder.

You want to buy freshly roasted (roasted less than a week ago) beans. Coffee beans from the supermarket are old, stale and sticky with rancid oil. Even Starbucks and Peets - although the sign says "roasted daily" if you read the fine print, the beans in the store are rotated out 90 days after roasting. The oils turn rancid and get sticky after a couple of weeks so you really need to get beans from a local roaster or order them from a roaster who ships them fresh.

I have been using RedBird espresso blend and these beans work perfectly with this machine. They also are the best tasting of any espresso blend I've ever tried. The price is reasonable (cheap even) and the roast date is written on the bag. I get my beans 2 days after they were roasted.

http://redbirdcoffee.com/redbirdespresso.html

In the meantime, until you get some coffee beans that are not oily, you can stir the beans in the hopper. Use a wooden coffee stirring stick or a chopstick and just lift the hopper lid and stir the beans so they slide down into the grinder. You will probably have to do this before each coffee and maybe even 2-3 times just to get one coffee.

Once you get some fresh roasted beans that don't have that oily shine to them you will be grinding without any problems.

Brand new machine. coffee beans are loaded. when trying to make coffee the machine says the beans are empty. thanks


This machine doesn't like oily beans. Your best bet is to buy freshly roasted beans that are roasted to a FC or FC+. Viena, French and Italian roast beans won't work well. Also any beans that you buy at the grocery store will be quite old (often 3 months past roasting date) and they tend to be very oily on the outside.

If you have a coffee stirring stick or a chopstick, lift the cover of the bean hopper and stir the beans and sort of poke them down in the center - that's where the beans stick and can't drop down into the grinding burrs.

If you use oily beans you will need to stir every time or every other time you make a cup. Fresh roasted beans at a slightly lighter roast will work fine.

My mazzer coffee grinder brings out medium to almost a whole bean grinds ,,,am trying to get a fine grind(for the espresso) but it's not working ,,, i've tried to move the scale to all the numbers but the...


Lets do this, remove the bean hopper, and make sure there are no beans in the burr chamber. Then looking down at the collar with the numbers back up screw if there is one on it. Now if memory serves me right clockwise is coarse and counter is fine. Look down in the burr chamber, notice the nut in the middle, turn it with your fingers that will move the bottom burr, if burr turns freely we will move on if not plug in grinder and let it grind out remaining beans. With beans gone unplug grinder, then turn collar towards fine until you cannot go no more, now try turning nut it will be hard if not impossible to move, turn collar towards coarse until you can barely move bottom burr with fingers, you will hear and feel the burrs touching, that will be our bottom setting. Now pick a spot on the grinder you can use the small notch in the middle, count out 16 notches towards coarse and turn collar to that point. Use the notches around the collar not the ones on the top next to the numbers. Your grind should be almost perfect, depending on blend and machine you might have to adjust 1 notch to the left or right after testing.

No coffee will dispenses


Hi, We had a similar problem and it turns out the beans we were using were too oily and clogging up the works. We solved it by using a slightly more coarse grind (and brewing a stronger cup), and by buying only the best beans (oily beans don't make coffee stronger, just means they aren't good beans and by roasting longer can make the coffee taste stronger). Try Barefoot Coffee Roasters (I don't work for them, just love their coffee). We also use the cleaning tablet more often than prompted, and clean the inside of the flap when we dump the grinds. Good luck. Great coffee, but finicky machine!
