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 time results 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.
4. The Suggested Grinding Chart shows
recommended grinding times at various
levels for automatic drip coffee makers
and French press machines.
5. A scale is provided inside the bowl for
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.
