    White dots in my grind

    Hi there!
    I have been buying Lazzio dark roast from Aldi for a while now. It is decent and better than some $40 a Kg I used to get from my local roaster.
    I had a packet at the holiday house that must have been a couple of month old. Used it anyway with some average results. Mainly weak coffee not surprising. What I don't understand is the white bits I can see in the grind. it's like I have ground chalk with the coffee beans. if I look at the grind in the basket, I can see a white dot every 5 mill or so ... ???

    Could be bean chaff - usually its a light cream colour. Won't hurt at all.

    Doesn't look like ground chalk though...
    Very mysterious.

    You haven't ground any dry rice or similar in recent times, have you?

    Hmmm.. I know with my grinder if I remove the top burr assembly for cleaning then screw it back in, I get some metal shavings coming through the chute (must just be too tight...). I don't suppose it might be something like that?

    Since the beans have been sitting in a holiday house for some time, is it possibly something like moths in the beans?

    I think you are right, it is light cream not pure white. So no worries?
    And no, it's not metal, and if I had done rice that is how it would look I suppose. Getting to the end of that packet and with all the visitors we had this week one kilo goes so fast!
    The grinder is a rossi commercial grinder. I used to know the model name and I probably described it in older post when this was a novelty ... ha ha.
