How to Set 1Zpresso Grind Settings?
1Zpresso (Easy-presso) Grind Settings Tutorial
Greetings, fellow coffee-lover.
This tutorial allows you to learn how to read the 1Zpresso grind setting reference.
All the burrs in the grinders were calibrated by the 1Zpresso team to ensure maximum stability over time.
As the outer ring and the burr were built through precision finishing, tolerance is expected and the outer ring and the burr would touch at the first few clicks. Constant touching might damage the burr set.

How to find the Zero Settings
It is intuitive to adjust the external adjustment design as you could just note where the red dot points.
It is quite easy for the internal and top adjustment design as well. Adjust the adjustment dial clockwise till you feel resistance, and that’s the zero setting.
These three kinds of adjustment design share a common point of the zero setting: at the click which the crank handle is unable to move drastically.
