Synopsis: Learn how to use ground coffee on super automatic espresso machines
We get many calls about using the ground coffee grinder bypass on Super Automatic espresso machines.
 
Keep in mind, this feature is not a doser, use a measuring spoon (usually supplied with the machine) to dose the correct amount of coffee. Use a high precision scale to measure how much coffee fits in the measuring scoop. Usually one flat scoop will hold 6-7 grams of fine ground coffee.
 
You'll find the grinder by-pass usually just beside the grinder. It looks like a funnel, covered by a lid.
 
Also keep in mind you need the right grind. Use a high quality espresso grinder.
 
For espresso, you need a fine grind. If you want to make long espressos of coffee, use a little coarser grind.
 
Use fresh ground coffee. Keep in mind once you grind coffee, it will go stale the same day (3-5 hours).
 
If you use old coffee or coarse ground coffee, you will not get a good espresso from the grinder bypass. You'll notice the espresso extraction will be very short and hardly any crema on the espresso.
 
Read the User Manual. Some models require you to pre-select the grinder bypass function first. The display will then ask you to insert ground coffee. After you did this, you'll need to push the product button. Make sure the grinder is not operating after this. If it does, you did not follow the instructions. On newer models, all you do is lift the bypass lid, insert ground coffee, close the lid and the machine will produce a product from the grinder by-pass.
 
Jura Impressa and other models:
 
 
The Jura can hold a max of 15 grams of ground coffee. So use maximum 2 spoons of the ground coffee.
 
Saeco Models:
 
 
The Saeco can hold a max of 9 grams of ground coffee. Use 1 spoon full of ground coffee only.
 
Schaerer model Opal and Siena:
 
 
The Schaerer Opal and Siena can hold up to 16 grams of ground coffee. Use a maximum of 2 spoons.
