How to use the Mignon Single Dose grinder

Grind Adjustments

Adjust the grind setting by turning the small dial on top of the grinder. The grinder is infinitely adjustable, with the numbers serving merely as reference points. This means the dial can rotate 360 degrees several times until the burrs touch or the dial unthreads. Turning the dial clockwise (towards smaller numbers) adjusts the grind setting finer, and turning counter-clockwise (towards larger numbers) adjusts the grind setting coarser. When dialing in for espresso, make small adjustments, in increments of 1/4 - 1/2 a number at a time, as this mechanism is very sensitive. 

Using the grinder for drip coffee and pour-over will require a large adjustment, likely an entire 360-degree rotation or two. When moving from espresso to pour over, i.e., fine to coarse, it is okay that the grinder is not running. When making large adjustments back to espresso, i.e., coarse to fine, it's best to have the grinder running so that it does not jam. 

If at any point coffee does not come through the grinder, this could indicate the setting is too fine, or it's jammed. Open the burrs to free the coffee by turning counter-clockwise and making the setting coarser.
