Question about Starbucks Barista Burr Grinder

1 Answer

I took my Starbucks Barista Conical Burr Grinder apart to clean it, and now I cannot seem to get the top burr back on. This is an old model, purchased in 2000, and has been running great. I used to manage for Starbucks, and learned grinder maintenance, but I must have forgotten this trick. Just can't seem to get it lined up and flush again. Thanks!

I think when you fix the front burr then you need to loose the middle screw. Then it will fix easily.
But don't run it right away.gently tighten the screw and tight until you feel some tightness .Then start the grinder and tighten or loose it according to your grinding specification

Krups gx6000 grinder advertises removable burr grinders and there are no instructions, but is that the best way to clean them?


Hi,
the Krups instruction manual is useless in this matter but if you do have some mechanical insight this is not very hard. You will need some tools, e.g. an Allen wrench to remove the housing lid.
Anyway, you should not have to clean the grinders very often, perhaps once a year is enough. It depends on the quality of the coffee beans you use; the more 'oily' beans the more frequent cleaning is required.
I would not use water to clean it, rather a small stiff brush (e.g. an old tooth brush), but if that is not enough, water will have to be used.
If so, be sure to assemble the grinder only after the burr is completely dry.
Check the link to Home Barista where a very similar grinder is shown, that should give you an idea about what to expect during the cleaning process.
Good luck;

My Barista Burr Coffee Grinder suddenly grinds too fine.


If it is any consolation, mine just did the same thing, now takes too long to grind and it is way to fine dispite a thorough cleaning by disassembly.
