Grinding for Espresso/
The Krups Fast-touch (F203) is acceptable for
grinding beans for boiler type espresso
machines. We do not recommend using the
Fast-Touch to grind beans for use with pump
espresso machines. Pump espresso machines
require a disc type grinder such as the KRUPS
«II Barista" ref 220 or a similar, professional
style espresso grinder. This type of grinder will
prevent coffee dust which can impede the
flow of water throught the espresso machine.
• Grinding time depends on how coarse or
fine a grind you desire. We do not
recommend grinding coffee longer than 20
seconds. Longer use will not result in a finer
grind, but in overheated coffee. As a result
coffee will lose its flavor.
• The Fast-Touch (model F203) has a larger 3
oz. bean capacity for up to 15 cups of fresh
Keeping your grinder clean is essential in
achieving optimal taste results. Most coffee
beans contain oils that may, over time,
become stronger in flavor and could affect the
taste oy your coffee.
Be sure that grinder is unplugged before
• Remove all coffee after each grinding. A
small soft brush or cloth is helpful in
removing ground coffee from lid and blades.
• Wipe inside of grinder lid and blades very
carrefully with a damp cloth.
• Base unit can be wiped down with a damp
cloth. NEVER immerse base unit in water or
any other liquid!
• Lid can be washed in warm water, using a
mild detergent, or be placed in th etop rack
of the dishwasher and used on gentle cycle.
