Handy Hints for Grinding Coffee Beans, Herbs and Spices

Grinding Coffee Beans
  • For a good cup of coffee only grind the amount you need for immediate use, as ground coffee quickly loses its flavour and aroma.
  • With the Sunbeam MultiGrinder II™ coffee beans can be ground to a very fine grind or a coarse grind. The required coffee grind will be determined by the brewing method used. The different brewing methods include:BREWING METHOD              GRINDTurkish coffee                              Very fine grindElectronic espresso machine        Fine grindStovetop espresso or filter            Medium grindPlunger or percolator                   Coarse grind
  • Do not leave coffee beans or grounds in the open air, always store them in an airtight container.
Grinding Herbs and Spices
  • For very hard herbs and spices, we recommend processing in ¼ cup batches to prevent overloading the grinder.


Using your Sunbeam MultiGrinder II™

Before using your Sunbeam MultiGrinder II™, wipe the stainless steel grinding bowl, blades and transparent cover with a damp soapy cloth. Ensure that no electrical components come into contact with water. Dry thoroughly before using.Important: If coffee beans, herbs or spices become caught in the grinding blades stop grinding immediately.Disconnect the grinder from the power supply and dislodge caught ingredients before recommencing grinding.

  1. Place the MultiGrinder II™ on a dry, level surface.
