How to Use: OXO Brew Conical Burr Coffee Grinder with Scale

Words OXO

A great cup of coffee starts with the beans and for better results, we say grind your beans at home. Conical burr grinders create uniform grinds, which results in better flavor.

About Grind Size

Grind size is key to controlling flavor extraction and strength of coffee. The finer your coffee grounds, the easier it is for the water to extract flavors because the water soaks into the smaller pieces much faster than larger ones. This is why fast-brewing methods like espresso call for a much finer grind size than those that need to steep slowly for the best flavor, like pour-over or French Press.

Follow these steps for using the OXO Brew Conical Burr Coffee Grinder with Integrated Scale:

5. Turn the dial to select a mode: cups, grams or manual/portafilter. See below for more info on each mode.

Cups Mode

OXO recommends using approximately 8 grams of ground coffee per cup (5 fl oz). In cups mode, the scale will measure and display the number of cups in the ground coffee container.

1. Turn the dial to select the total number of cups you would like  

2. Press the OXO button to grind.

Grams Mode

If you already know how many grams you need for your favorite brewing method, you can grind by grams by selecting your desired quantity: from 1 to 125 grams. In grams mode, the scale measures and displays the number of grams in the ground coffee container.

1. Turn the dial to select the total number of grams you would like.

2. Press the OXO button to grind.

Manual/Portafilter Mode

In the manual mode, the display selection is disabled: you cannot select cups or grams. Once manual mode is selected, you can grind into the grounds container or a different container, or you can remove the ground coffee container and place a portafilter under the chute. 

1. Press the OXO button to start grinding.

2. Press the OXO button again to stop grinding.

Whether you like strong or mild, espresso or drip, French press or pour over; the right Grinder can help you get the grind you need to make your perfect cup.
