  • Clean your grinder!

    I picked up a grinder yesterday.

    Took the hopper off. Saw a large amount of crap in it.
    Tipped up side down and shook. Nothing came out.

    YUK!

        And you guys actually drink the stuff that comes from this

        If these were in a commercial environment, you would be screaming about cleanliness etc etc... and the impact of flavours etc 8-)

        OPPSS.... I wonder just how many places actually do any thing more that a spit and polish.. :-?

        So sorry, had a look at the top post and recognised the pre flavoured beans from GJ ..... Oils ant oils and they sure do make a mess

        Now.. To Twitter and tel the world I am off to clean my Grinder 8-)

            So I guess the rule for Chinese cooking doesnt apply to Coffee: ie: a pre-flavoured Wok tastes better

            ;D ;D ;D

              The grinder and coffee machine are no longer in the shop. They dont have any coffee equipment anymore, its all now in my house! ;D

                    Yep!

                    Do you think that I should pry them out and put through my machine? Might be a bit stale. ;D

                    You see the stuff on top of the plastic number disc? Looks loose? It aint. I have to scrape it off. Disgusting.

                        I have some spots on the doser of the Macap.
                        Probably splashed milk.

                        Any suggestions for removing it?

                          Man, it just gets worse and worse. I dont envy you at all. I tried to find a <vomit> emoticon but there isnt one. Good luck with your cleaning...
