    What does all that sugar coated beans do to your grinder?

    HI saoye

    Nothing. The sugar has caramelized and burnt into the bean. When you grind the blend, you are grinding normal roasted beans and a 10-30% by volume mix, so it does not affect your grinder at all. If you were to heat the beans to melting point, then you would have an issue.

    Dont forget 95% of coffee served in Spain Portugal and France is Torrefacto. They have no grinder issues.
