Setting up your grinder

Screen Shot 2023-02-20 at 2.39.50 PM-1Dialing in your grind

  • If you elected for Clive to dial in your grinder, we recommend pulling a shot before making a grind adjustment. 
  • To adjust the grind size, move the hopper lid clockwise for a finer grind or counterclockwise for a coarser grind. 
  • We can't stress this enough — to have success at dialing in an espresso grinder, you need fresh coffee. If your coffee bag doesn't have a roast date or is older than one month, you can order some directly from us and have it shipped to you at your desired frequency. Check out our coffee selection by Mistobox.
