Coffee grinding tips

1. Grind only beans you will immediately use
for freshest-tasting coffee.
2. Adjust amount of coffee beans and
grinding time to suit your own personal
taste. Shorter grinding times result in
coarser grinds. Longer grinding times
result in finer grinds, but can overheat
the coffee grinds and valuable coffee
flavors can be lost. (For optimum grinding
results, do not pulse top cover.)
3. KitchenAid does not recommend using
this grinder to grind beans for pump
espresso-type machines.
For automatic drip coffee makers and French press machines*
Fill to
12-Cup Fill Line
10-Cup Fill Line
8-Cup Fill Line

*French press machines require a coarse grind. For optimum results, process beans
continuously until desired grind size is achieved.

the KitchenAid recommended amount of
beans to grind for 4, 8, 10, and 12 cups
of coffee. Fill the bowl to your desired
cup size with 4 cups minimum or 12 cups
maximum level. Various bean blends and
bean sizes can cause differences in fill
level and grind times.
