1st-line “Michael” Espresso Coffee Grinder

1st-line’s Michael espresso coffee grinder is a workhorse. Featuring large flat burrs for high production grinding, a large hopper to cut down on refill time, and a doser for back to back shots. There is also a built-in tamper on the front when you are in need of a quick tamp. The catch tray is designed to be larger than most since spillage can occur in a fast-paced environment.


Grinding adjustment
  • Micro-metrical Stepped – Adjustment dial is located underneath the hopper. The entire dial is numbered so you can remember your current grind setting easier. Turn clockwise for a finer grind and counterclockwise for a coarser grind.
  • Setting lock – A setting lock button keeps your current setting. Prevents users from accidentally altering it and spending time to find your correct setting again.
Grinding burrs
  • Flat burrs – Large size at 64 mm. The larger the size, the more of a grinding surface, resulting in faster production.
  • High rpm – Fast spinning rate at 1400 rpm. The higher the speed, the faster the production, which can increase efficiency and reduce wait times.
Ground coffee doser
  • Precision dosing – The ground coffee will always fall in the right place in the middle of the portafilter.
  • Dosing adjustment – Located in the center of the doser. Turning it clockwise decreases the amount of coffee dosed. Turning it counterclockwise increases the amount of coffee dosed. In order to turn clockwise, you will have to hold the sweeping arm.
  • Dosing counter – Located on the left side of the doser. Gives you an estimation of your usage.
  • Tamper – Located in front of the doser. Great for a quick tamp. Tamper size is 57 mm.
Grinds catch tray
  • Large capacity – The tray has a 1/2″ depth. This will be able to catch and hold a lot of grinds.
  • Removable – The Michael has a rim that the tray slides onto. Easy to install or remove.
Bean hopper
  • Large capacity – Meant for high volume. Can easily hold a standard kilo bag of coffee.
  • Set screws – There are 2 screws located under the grinding adjustment. This helps secure the hopper to the grinder. Prevents users from quickly removing the hopper, spilling beans everywhere.
  • Finger guard – Prevents users from “accidentally” putting their fingers in the grinding burrs.
  • Tinted – Helps to avoid premature deterioration of beans from light sources (such as sunlight).
  • Stopper – A door near the bottom of the hopper can be pushed in to close the opening. This allows you to remove the hopper with beans inside so you can easily change the beans. There will be some beans already passed in the burrs which will have to be ground out first before removing the hopper.

Espresso Grinder Warning

  • CLEANING WARNING: We recommend using grinder cleaning agents. We do not recommend any removal of the burrs or burr carrier for cleaning as re-assembly can cause damage.
  • ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso grinder which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. The lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso grinder can be damaged at the power switch, the capacitor, the motor, or the wiring.

  1. Changing grind settings: As with all coffee grinders, it is very important to only change grind settings when the unit is powered ‘on’ and the burrs are in motion. If you do not do this, the burrs will ‘gunk’ up and require cleaning by you every time this occurs. Changing the grind settings when the burrs are not in motion will render the grinder to only produce very coarse grinds or no grinds at all. If this result occurs, this will be considered operator error for lack of following directions, and not be classified as a defective grinder.
  2. Finding coffee grinds in a new grinder: We have confirmed that the manufacturer tests EVERY grinder with coffee beans before it leaves their facility, but they are not always able to get every trace of coffee out of the grinders after testing. As a result, you may find coffee beans or grinds inside your grinder, or there may be grinds in the packaging when you unwrap it.
  3. Static issues: There are static issues with all grinders, even the highest quality models. We firmly believe that the static comes from the coffee beans. If you are having static problems with your coffee grinder, trying using a different blend of beans.
  4. Replacing burrs: NEVER use a flat head screwdriver and hammer to wedge under the burrs for removal. This could badly damage your grinder.
  5. Electrical cord: Please note that the electrical cord is placed between the packaging (foam or cardboard) and the underside body of the grinder. During shipping, it is normal for a bend or insignificant blemish / slice to damage the cord.
