1. It is De'Longhi a brand that seems to make really robust products
2. It is very easy to operate, fill with beans, set the coarseness or finest of the grind and the quantity and way you go
3. The fine setting creates a very fine grind perfect for my stovetop Espresso pot
4 The coarse grind is perfect for my cafetière creating good coffee and no sludge
So, this is a very well made, engineered product that creates a consistent grind.
I do intend to put rice through it every month to clean it, as the burr grinder can get clogged with oils from the coffee.
Overall I could not be happier with this grinder.
It is also very good looking!
The only downside is the plastic round holder in the middle of the bean compartment always comes loose.
It is meant to stay in place but more often than not just moves out of the way by the motion of the beans. This makes the machine sound funny as the beans are not grinding properly. So what i do is manaully start and stop the machine after 3 or 4 seconds, do that say 4 times.
Its a bit of a pain then as you have to tip the machine upside down to empty the beans, re-insert the plastic holder then re-fill with beans again.
As you can see from the pic, I have it set on medium and 6 cups.......I did get medium ground coffee but I got 13 cups worth. The first time I tried it I had it set on course ground but yielded the same amount of coffee ground. 13 cups.
I mean it's not wasted, it'll get drunk, but what if i had it set on anything higher. It would trip out the machine or overheat........
So to compensate i have to have it set on half the amount of coffee needed......not a travesty, but a pain never the less......
As for the machine itself, its a nice looking grinder. Fits well with our decor and grinds coffee as it should. Just too much.....lol.
UPDATE: Ok, I've just re-read the instructions and it appears that the machine does grind the stated amount per cup.....1 Tablespoon.....really?
My last grinder, a Krups, did one heaped teaspoon per cup. I thought this was the norm. Is a tablespoon of coffee the correct amount these days?. I know it's all down to personal
taste, but I would've thought a tablespoon per cup would be too strong....
UPDATE: Well i've been drinking coffee with the settings this machine does...1 tablespoon per cup. Yes it's been stronger than i'm used to, but now i'm enjoying the strength. So i have changed my rating to 5 stars as i'm a happy bunny...........
Be careful when cleaning - DO NOT use excessive force to remove and replace the removable grinding attachment! Turns out I had done that and over time this caused the internal mechanism to eventually jam up. This was fixable after following a video on Youtube showing how to disassemble the unit, with no damage caused. This was completely my error and not necessarily the fault of the manufacturer.
Otherwise it's maybe a little noisy and doesn't always stop grinding when all the beans are done - I believe the front dial just controls the grinding duration.
Worth the price paid for a superior grind to normal blade grinders!
A coffee blend for a machine that I have should take 20 seconds from start of pump to finish (Professional machines should take 30 - tip if you fancy a coffee before you order, time the machine the Barista is using, if it takes less time than approx 30 seconds, walk away, the coffee will be bitter. This, on the finest setting took less than 10 seconds producing a very bitter taste.
Ever wondered why people say they don't like coffee, it tastes bitter? This is just bad coffee :-)
I use this to brew the following methods at home:
GINA by Goat story
It grinds suitable sizes for all of those methods listed above.
It however is not suitable for my Turkish pot.
Look up "HowTo: Make A Cheap Electric Espresso Grinder Using A DeLonghi KG79 / KG89" for the fix.
This would definitely be a 5 star product for the price, if it came properly adjusted. But I've dropped a star because they've been overcautious on the adjustment, presumably to reduce the likelihood of user error, damage, and returns.
