I have a sunbeam em6910 I would like an price on a in home lesson on how to achieve to best possible coffee, the machine does has a 58mm portafiller and is supposed to be the flagship of the range
where I see I fall down is maybe in my grind as I grind about two days worth of beans than store in a air tight container place in the freezer. my bean are bought from Zarerafas but you paying 22.00 per 500g witch are also store in the freezer.
I do notice on the day when I crind is there day I get my best cup of coffee, so may be i am not getting the best results from my beans. the grinder i have is only $30 dollar ginder and i dont know if i am storing my coffee correctly as you hear so many conflicting reports on how you should store your beans i presume there is a cheaper way to buy fresh coffee

Drop me a PM as I do get down that way, and there are a few other CSs around.
1: Ya grinder is not up to the job. Good for spices maybe... Min requirement is an EM0450 and then start looking beyond.
2: Ya beans need to be fresh and grind as you need..
3: Lots of debate - but I do not recommend storing in Freezer.
Note: Without a good grinder and fresh beans you will gain little from and training as it can not be done with inferior products.
See about doing the Sunbeam training that is offered with new EM6910 units...
Before hand read teh following...
Then read any number of teh EM6910 posts on Coffee Snobs.
Sleep is overrated
Re: storeing coffee
quen welcome to Coffee Snobs.
You are correct; you will get the best out of your beans on the day you grind them.
In fact the best is just after you grind them.
By the next day they are well and truly stale.
A $30 grinder is not up to the job.
I use a 6910 at work and can vouch for it being able to produce a good coffee if paired with a decent grinder and fresh beans.
I dont freeze my beans as I drink 500g fast enough.
How long does it take you to use up a 500g bag?
As AM said, arrange to take the free Sunbeam course.
Also budget for a grinder; the minimum being the Sunbeam EM0450.
If you can afford a better one, go for it.
