INTRODUCTION

The LPGA will store up to six pounds and the LPGA-2E will store up to three pounds of whole bean coffee in each of two hoppers and grind it to a preset grind and amount into an awaiting funnel and filter from most commercial drip coffee brewers. The equipment is only for indoor use on a sturdy counter or shelf. Adequate space must be available above the grinder to raise the lid when adding beans. Use only with whole bean coffee.

The grind is preset at the factory to drip specifications as set forth by the United States Department of Commerce and adopted by the Coffee Brewing Center of the Pan American Coffee Bureau. Adjustments may be made to alter both the amount and grind from the factory setting.
