    Re: Beans causing grinder to choke / slow

    Oops i meant to say "roasted" on the 6th.

    I have since bought an Isomac Granmaccinino and love it - Big thanks to the site sponsors Di Bartoli for their help in store.

    I think the borrowed grinder is dying a slow death as the new machine works fine with the same beans. I will have to investigate.

    thanks though

    Im having an issue with some fresh beans I just bought, in that since i have put them into my grinder they have caused the grinder to slow and sound like its choking... to the point where it does choke and stop completely.

    I have tried changing the settings but that gives me poor shots. Could it be that the beans are too soft or too freshly ground? They were ground on the 6th Sept and today is the 9th.
    Just want to clarify something - you start by saying that your grinder is choking when grinding beans, but then that the beans were ground on the 6th. Did you means roasted? or are you trying to regrind, because if youre grinding the grinds, this will explain why youre getting all clogged up. If its that they were only roasted 3 days ago - Im not sure - is it a very dark roast, maybe quite oily?

    My grinder is an old italian made grinder called... Macchina ..uh.. I cant remember... its on loan from a friend.. I will have to update later..

    But any help would be good if im not too vague that is...

    Cheers
