Regarding your Cord Set:A. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify the plugin anyway.

IMPORTANT: The grinder was tested with beans during assembly. Despite cleaning, traces of ground coffee may be found in a new machine.

  2. Clean all loose parts with a dry cloth. NEVER clean any parts of the grinder in the dishwasher. NEVER get the burrs wet.
  3. To remove any dust that may have accumulated on the removable parts during packing, wash the ground coffee container, its lid, and coffee bean container lid with warm water and a mild liquid soap solution. Rinse and dry.Important: Do not use harsh or abrasive agents to clean these parts.
  4. Allow parts to dry completely before use.Warning: Putting wet parts back onto the grinder can damage the machine.Caution: Do not immerse the grinder or the removable upper burr in water.Important: Do not place the ground coffee container, its lid, or the bean container lid in the dishwasher.

  9. Do not place your hand in or near the burrs.
  10. Any servicing other than cleaning and user maintenance should be performed by an authorized Capresso service representative.

Important: Burr grinder will not operate if the coffee bean container lid, ground coffee container, or ground coffee container lid are not properly in place.


  1. Place your Burr Grinder on a flat, level surface.
  2. Ensure all parts are locked into place as described in Before First Use.
  3. Plug the grinder into an outlet.
  4. Fill the bean container with coffee beans and replace the lid.The bean container can hold up to 10 ounces of coffee beans.Note: Only coffee beans should be filled into the bean container. Never fill any of the following into the bean container: sugar-coated beans, syrups or other coatings, and instant coffee. Never fill water or any other liquid into the bean container.
  5. Set the cup selector dial to the number of cups of coffee you want to grind by turning the dial to the number of cups you will brew.Note: These numbers are to be used as a guide. The amount of ground coffee varies quite a bit depending on how coarse or fine you grind and whether you use light, dry beans, or dark, oily beans. After grinding a few times, you will find the correct grind amount position for the amount of coffee you want to grind.Note: Never grind more coffee than indicated by the “MAX” fill line of the ground coffee container. Overfilling the ground coffee container can cause clogging in the grinder chute and can damage the machine.
  6. Set the fineness selector to the desired setting (see Section “Guidelines for Fineness Selector Settings”).Caution: Never change the fineness selector setting while grinding!
  7. Push the On/Off button down to start your Capresso grinder. The grinder will begin grinding the whole bean coffee directly into the ground coffee container. It will stop automatically.Attention: Beans may stick to the wall of the bean container, preventing them from falling into the burrs. You will hear a high-pitched noise from the motor when this happens. Gently shake the grinder so that the beans slide down into the burrs.Note: If you need to turn the grinder off before the grinding cycle is finished, simply push the On/Off button.
  8. Be sure to unplug the appliance after every use.Note: Coffee beans can stay in the bean container for up to 1 week before they will start to lose their aroma.

Guidelines for Fineness Selector Settings


Brewing Method

Fine Pump Espresso Machines
Medium / Fine Drip Coffee Makers / Steam Espresso
Medium Manual Pour-Over Coffee Brewing
Medium / Coarse Percolator
Coarse French Press

The fineness selector knob has 15 different settings to control the size of the ground coffee. The smallest dot corresponds to the finest setting and the largest dot corresponds to the coarsest setting. The medium setting has a line to easily distinguish the medium setting, perfect for drip coffee. From the medium setting, turn the knob counterclockwise to set the level finer, or turn the knob clockwise from the medium setting to set the level coarser. The fineness settings are approximate guidelines. When using dark, oily beans, use a coarser grind; with light, dry beans, use a finer grind. For espresso pump machines: if your espresso brews too fast, try a finer setting. If your espresso brews too slowly, try a coarser setting than the ones recommended above.Note: The finer the grind setting, the longer it takes to grind the coffee.Grinding Tips

  • Never grind in advance, only grind the amount of coffee you will use. Ground coffee loses aroma and flavor quickly and attracts other odors.
  • Do not grind for more than 75 seconds at a time. Let the machine cool down for 5 minutes before grinding again.
  • Empty the ground coffee container before it is completely full, otherwise, ground coffee can back up into the grinding chute (Fig. 1) and block the grinding Prolonged use with the ground coffee container full can damage the grinder.
  • Before removing the ground coffee container, tap the machine a few times. This will relieve some of the static build-ups which occur during grinding.

CleaningAlways unplug your coffee grinder before cleaning.

  • Remove the ground coffee container, its lid, and the bean container lid and clean them in warm water and mild liquid soap solution. Do not place these items in the dishwasher.
  • Empty the bean container. The transparent part of the bean container can be wiped on the inside and outside with a damp cloth. Do not clean the bean container with water.
  • Remove excess ground coffee from the grinder chute with a small brush.
  • The base of the grinder can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
