Access to grinder for maintenance
7 April 2018
Mine "broke" after not too much use (20 cups maybe). The grinder started making clicking noises and stopped grinding.
The problem here is that access to the grinder to try and see what's going wrong is really limited, after taking the other bits out of the machine, tipping it back to remove the beans from the hopper into a bowl and then turning it upside down to clear out any remaining junk. I still couldn't see any obvious block, though given the design I couldn't really get in very close to look at it. A few more beans in and same result clicking noises and the beans being spit back out of the grinder.
I'm not marking this down because of the breakdown (that happens to even the best company and this may still just be a simple blockage), but because the design means no real access to the grinder if you do get problems. I doubt I'll by the same model again for that reason.
The coffee it did produce was fine.
