Here are the links to latest manual and tips and tricks for your Monolith grinder:
Getting Most Out Of Your Monolith Grinder.
About MAX and Monolith Flat
Monolith MAX and Flat with Shuriken burrs are pre-seasoned by us before they are coated so you do not need to run tens of pounds of coffee to season the burrs. You can use grinder right out of the box, but if you wish to run some coffee 1-3 pounds of coffee is enough to get you started and smooth out the coating applied to the burrs.
If your grinder is not grinding upon starting the motor, flip the motor direction switch on the side panel since this might get moved during cleaning and packaging. See manual below for the switch location. If motor is not spinning at all, flip the side controller switch from Stand By to Run.
About Monolith Conical
Monolith Conical with Mazzer burrs can be also used right out of the box, however to fully season burrs 5-10 lbs of coffee through the burrs is needed. Exact amount varies from the burr to burr and it could be up to 25lbs especially with Alpha coated burrs. Seasoning coffee should be ground at #9 on grind scale. Grind about 300-400g of coffee at the time then rest the motor for 20-30 minutes and repeat. As burrs season you will see you have to grind finer and finer for same coffee/dose/flow. This is normal and expected and indicates that seasoning is progressing. Movement of half a funnel turn or more to finer side is possible, particularly for TiN coated burrs. Its normal and expected.
