Tech Tip: How to Clean the Rancilio KRYO 65 Commercial Espresso Grinder
This entry was posted on November 1, 2013.
Designed for high capacity commercial environments, the Rancilio KRYO is an espresso-grade grinder that enables you to craft shot after sumptuous shot. With its 64mm stainless steel burrs, dosing chamber and unique aluminum fins (that dissipate the grind temperature) it quickly grinds up coffee for your double shots. But one key element of consistent shot flavor is to ensure that you're using fresh coffee, and not inadvertently melding flavors with a built-up melange of old coffee grounds.
To avoid that, we highly recommend that you clean the grinder on a regular basis -- at least monthly, if not weekly. Getting into it, taking it apart and then getting it back together again can seem a bit overwhelming, however, so we've filmed a how-to video for you! Hopefully, watching it will give you the confidence you need to take this project on.
Watch as Brandon walks us through the whole process, gives us tips on best practice and even tutors us in the ways of knowing when it's time to replace the burrs. Even if you don't want to dive into the full cleaning every week, doing it each month will improve your coffee flavor, and your customers will definitely dig it!
