    How do I adjust the grinder setting of my Philips Espresso Machine?

    Published on 2022-06-22

    You can adjust the grinder setting of your Philips Espresso machine through the grind setting knob. Read below to find out more information.

    Changing the grinder settings

    The grinder setting of your Philips Espresso machine can be adjusted by using the grind setting knob inside the bean container. In some machines you will need to use the back of the handle of the pre-ground scoop as an adjustment key:
    1. Open the lid of the bean container. 
    2. First place the adjustment key on the grinder adjustment knob (see image 1), then press down the grind setting knob and turn it to the left or right. If there is an adjustment knob (see image 2) no extra tool is needed, you can press it down and turn it left or right. 
    3. Turning it a notch left or right, adjusts the setting. There will be either dots or numbers to indicate the grind setting. A smaller dot/number equals to a smaller particle size. 
    4. Try brewing two to three cups of coffee to taste the difference. The sensor will make the adjustments to the amount of time the grinder spins to make sure that the correct amount of coffee is being ground and as a result you will have an optimal shot of espresso.
