Is The Core All Grind An Espresso Grinder?
The grinder has been designed specifically for manual brewing however it can grind to a micron level between 250 and 500 which many people use for espresso. The grind size consistency is more consistent between 400 and 800 microns which covers most manual brewing methods. As it can grind at lower microns we include a portafilter attachment that you often find on espresso specific grinders. Although not an espresso specific grinder it can be used for espresso but it will not have the ability to make very small adjustments to the espresso grind, this is something a much higher price point espresso specific grinder offers. For general home espresso machines the Core All Grind will work well and we have many happy customers using for espresso.
Can I Replace The Burrs?
Absolutely, unlike other grinders you can replace the burrs in a few seconds. Simply detach the main grind unit with the press of a button and clip the new one in to place. Replacement burr units are available direct from Barista & co and they can also accept old ones for recycling.
Can I Reduce The Amount Of Grind On My Surface?
As the grinder has been designed to be used with a portafilter, the storage container or another vessel you may get some coffee grind on the surface. This is often created due to static which is unavoidable with all grinders. To minimise the build up you can tap the grinder head (while holding the body) after each use to knock the grind out. You can also use the brush inside the hopper to give the disperser a quick clean after each use. As static build up is greater with plastic you can also swap out the storage container and use a ceramic or stainless steel receptacle. Keeping your grinder clean will minimise the mess and maximise the performance of the product. Please also refer to the manual for the maximum recommended grinding times as overuse can lead to a static build up. You may also choose to see the many tips on reducing static on coffee blogs.
