Zenith 65e Burr Cleaning and Removal

Recommended Posts

Hi. I did clean the burr chamber after couple of kg of medium / dark roast beans. The burr chamber looked cleaner than before, because there is not so much loose space and the fitting with new setup is tighter. Bigger burrs and sweeping arms push the grounds better than with smaller burrs. I haven't done the pencil alignment for the burrs, because burrs are new. Maybe after pushing 10kg trough them I could do that - I report back. I haven't had any channeling trough coffee puck, but I use Londinium distribution tool. I don't own kruve https://www.kruveinc.com or similar to provide hard data about the output, but I like it now better.

Is it possible to help me understand when it is time go change burrs on a zenith 65e? Is it based on shots, or there is a more scientific method to design if I have to change them?

Frappe still rocks!

I would suggest to keep count of kg that you have grinded with burrs. If you don’t manage to grind stones or similar foreign object then the manufacturer recommendations of lifetime is good indicator. Different burrs have their own recommendation of kg that they should stay good. Basic steel burrs are cheap compared to coated or titanium burrs.
