The espresso grinder needs to be cleaned every day after the store closes.
To clean the espresso grinder:
- Slide the hopper chute arm (Figure 1) to the closed position. This will stop any more beans from falling into the grinder.
- Use a portafilter to press the dosing switch (Figure 2) and grind the remaining beans that are in the grinder. You may need to do this a few times until all of the beans have been emptied through the grinder.
- With the hopper shoot arm closed, remove the hopper from the grinder by pulling it straight up from the grinder.
- Place a zip lock bag around the hopper chute and move the chute arm to the open position to empty the beans into the bag.
- With the hopper empty, clean the hopper using hot water and a clean towel. Do not use soap or any chemicals to clean.
- Clean the top of the grinder below where the hopper sits (Figure 3) with a bar brush or damp towel.
- Clean the Burr housing (Figure 4) with a bar brush (Beans can harden around the edge of the burr housing. You may need to use a plastic knife to scrap hard beans off the edges of the burr housing).
- Remove the base plate (Figure 5) and clean with bar brush or damp towel.
- Clean the sides and back of the grinder.
- Move the grinder and wipe the counter under the grinder.
- Place the hopper back onto the grinder and move the chute arm back to the closed position.
- Place your sealed bag of espresso beans in the hopper for the next day.
