Two mistakes here as I see it:
1. The grinder just wont cut it. At the absolute bare minimum, you will need the matching Sunbeam grinder. If you purchased both from the same place and a sales boffin advised that the grinder was appropriate, you have received a bum steer. Take it back as it is not fit for purpose, nor the machine- unless you compromise and use the dual floor baskets which will produce decidedly average coffee.
2. The coffee. Not up to scratch either. If fact you really couldnt do much worse. The bonus is that it will act as a good natural insecticide if required in your garden ;)
Choose one of the many specialty roasters here or a roaster close to you. You need fresh beans roasted within the last 2-3 weeks.
