Eureka Atom 65 Espresso Grinder Setup


hi I’m Charles with Clive coffee and
today I’ll be showing you how to set up here Eureka atom 65 espresso grinder
step one out of the box and onto the counter remove the grinder from its box
and place it on a solid level surface inspect the grinder for any damage if
you notice any contact us immediately insert the hopper and lightly tighten
the hopper screw to hold it in place now plug the grinder in and turn it on step
2 feeling the coffee drop some beans in
the hopper and grind them into your hand feel the grounds for espresso they
should feel similar to table salt not as finest powdered sugar and not as coarse
as sand step 3 dialing the dose once the grind is in
the ballpark it’s time to start pulling shots first grab a scale and tare the
weight of the portafilter fill your hopper and press the manual grind button
in the center of the grinder use your portafilter to press and hold the grind
button and when the basket looks relatively full release it to stop now
weigh the Porta filter add or remove grounds as necessary to get to 20 grams
if you’re using a triple basket and 18 grams if you’re using a double step for
adjustments shop time grip the tamper handle as though you were grasping a
doorknob tamp straight down and simply lean your
weight into it comfortably the amount of pressure is not nearly as important as
your consistency and ability to keep the tamp perfectly level so water doesn’t
find weak spots insert your portafilter and start the
shop we’ll be watching for the first drops of espresso to fall between 6 and
10 seconds as the shot progresses we’ll observe the total shot time our target
output is 1.5 ounces or 30 grams of liquid espresso and 25 to 30 seconds if
it falls under 25 seconds adjust your current finer if it falls over 30 adjust
coursing make small adjustments this will be easier than making big changes
and over correcting step 5 time dosing now that we have our grind dialed we can
set up the grind timer for consistent and repeatable dosing with the hopper
filled press the dose button you’d like to program to change the time press the
plus and minus buttons we find that it generally takes seven seconds to grant a
20 gram dose we recommend starting there tear your portafilter grind then weigh
the Porta filter again if the dose is too small increased the time setting
if it’s too much decreasing for more tips on coffee technique and recipe
