Question about Starbucks Saeco Italia Digital Barista Coffee Machine
Saeco Italia SUP021 YR. Machine runs for 30 seconds but no coffee dispensed. Red light #29 on solid (Empty bean container/full grounds drawer) - not empty/not full. Help please.
Comment on oily beans - try not to use them. If you are looking for a stronger flavor coffee, an an extra shot to your drink. Oily beans cake inside the grinder, brew group + components and strains them potentiallu causing malfunctions.
Also dark beans are usually over roasted which makes the makes real coffee flavor lose. Espresso coffee beans should have very little to no oil and be unifrom in color.
Another approach if you are looking for stronger coffee flavor. use less water instead of more coffee. Two shots of 2 oz. espresso (made with 7 grams of coffee) are more flavorful & sweeter than one shot of 4-oz. espresso made with 14 grams of coffee.

Ensure that you are putting the grinder and upper burr at the correct position and that if you are following the grinding cleaning instructions, you are aligning the arrows as it is indicated in the instructions, then re-setting your grinder. This problem is common when the grinder is set at too fine- thus no beans come out and the machine works hard but nothing comes out. Clean the channel from the grinder to doser door too as that could also be clogged with very fine coffee- it is too hard for the machine to push through too fine coffee. Then, make sure that you re-set the grinder correctly. If you are following the exact instructions but still no coffee coming out- then do the following.
Adjust one notch the outer ring in either direction and see if it makes a difference, if not try two or three. Sometimes, as the grinder gets worn out ( more commonly with oily beans and coffee that is kept in refrig/or freezer), you may have to play with the re-set (outer ring) until you begin to get coffee.

Not clear on "Empty bean container/full grounds drawer) - not empty/not full. " But I gather that coffee is not being dispensed. Most Likely the grinder needs cleaning + brew group needs cleaning ( filter ). Do you get water/steam?
