Hi thanks, I hadnt seen the above links, perfect I got into the grinder and took it out and managed to separate it enough to remove a fairly hard round ball that wasnt coffee bean nor stone, but was obviously jamming the grinder, all back together, good clean and just enjoying my first brew, Many thanks again for the help.
One last question, where should the dial on the grinder be set. 1 to 7?

I have it about 2.5

remember to only change the grinder knob when it's actually grinding coffee

I love my coffee from this but I’m overdoing it on caffeine a bit. Does anyone have any recommendations for pre-ground decaf that I could use in the middle when I don’t want more caffeine. I’m currently using PS coffee roasters for my main beans

I'd say that 4 cups is fine personally....

Caffeine affects people differently - some are more sensitive to it than others

Less chance of affecting your sleep if you consume mainly earlier in the day -> caffeine has a half-life of about 7 hours

Another thing is that Robusta coffee beans contain twice as much caffeine on average as Arabica beans

I've tried these - they work pretty well in the De'Longhi

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

not going to be roasted last week amazing but decent and a fraction of the price.

compares favourably to say Lavazza Rossa but cheaper.

(smoother than Lavazza Rossa - medium roast -> 3.5 / 5 intensity I would put it at)

Recently, the ground coffee beans in mine are looking a bit damp when the are done. So when I open it to empty the machine, some of the ground beans are still clinging to the inside of it meaning its way harder to clean.

I have changed to a different brand recently, could that have made a difference?

that's always been the case with mine, there's sometimes a bit of mould on the grounds at the bottom of the container. How would they not be damp, they have steam forced through them in the machine. I just rinse the container under a running tap.
