Owning the la Pavoni Burr Coffee Grinder
Hailing from Italy, the birthplace of espresso, the la Pavoni Burr Grinder uses tempered steel burrs to ensure a consistent and static-free grind, while giving you 9 different fineness settings for the perfect brew. But let’s not forget that some also call Italy the birthplace of style – and the la Pavoni Burr Grinder is no exception. Choose either the chrome or brass housing to match your espresso machine and kitchen décor, knowing that the grinder’s compact size (10” high) allows it to fit well into small spaces. Stylishly designed, the la Pavoni Burr Grinder creates a great coffee bar display when placed next to your espresso machine. Burr grinders, like the La Pavoni , use 1 stationary serrated burr and 1 rotating serrated burr, so beans are drawn in between them and crushed evenly and consistently for the best-tasting drink. The burrs on the La Pavoni rotate at 100 rpm. On the front of your grinder, directly above the coffee dispensing chute, is a white number wheel that goes from 1 to 9. These numbers correspond to the fineness setting of the grinder – 1 is the finest, 9 the coarsest. To adjust the setting, turn the knob located on the right side of the machine clockwise for a finer grind and counter-clockwise for a coarser one. Below the knob is the on/off switch, which starts and stops the motor.
Your coffee beans are stored in a tinted bean hopper on top of the machine, which holds ¼ lb of beans, or enough for 15 shots of espresso. The La Pavoni Burr Grinder gives you 2 choices – you can grind small amounts directly into your portafilter, or if you plan on brewing a lot of espresso for guests, you can grind beans directly into the grounds container and measure out what you need from there. Whether you’re grinding into the grounds container or your portafilter, make sure to adjust the grind setting before you turn the machine on. To grind beans into the grounds container, make sure that the container is securely in place, and turn the switch to the on position. Grinding will begin, and once you have your desired amount, turn the switch to the off position. If you are grinding directly into a portafilter, remove the grounds container and place your portafilter under the coffee shoot. Use the portafilter to press up on the protruding plastic piece located beneath the hopper, and grinding begins. Release the pressure on it to stop grinding. As a safety measure, the grinder will automatically shut itself off after approximately 2 minutes of continuous grinding, preventing damage to the motor. la Pavoni Burr Coffee Grinder.
