How to use a JavaPresse grinder

  • Remove the lid and add a few beans. 

Use these beans to test your grind setting to make sure it’s where you want it to be. From there, adjust your JavaPresse grinder as necessary.

  • Add 10-12 grams of your favorite fresh coffee beans. 

Make sure to grind your coffee right before brewing for the best flavor.

  • Hold the grinder vertically and anchor it to the table. 

This allows the beans to funnel directly down. You may want to place a towel between the grinder and your counter to absorb noise and vibrations. 

  • Turn the handle clockwise to grind. 

Do not turn it counterclockwise, because it can significantly damage your burrs! 

How to adjust a JavaPresse grinder

With 18 click settings, the JavaPresse Manual Coffee Grinder offers complete control over the coarseness of your beans. 

To adjust your settings, simply turn the adjustment knob counterclockwise. Each click tells you how far apart the burrs are. For coarse grinds for french presses or cold brew, 13-18 clicks is best. 10-12 clicks is usually preferred for most drip coffee makers. And if you’re making a shot of espresso, 1-3 clicks may be best. 

It will take trial and error to find which grind setting is your favorite. These are just guidelines! If you use your grinder for the same purpose, like for your drip coffee maker, feel free to simply leave it at your preferred setting.
