Sorry to jump in:) is anyone familiar with a Miele espresso machine? It's
one of those all in one things grinds and all. If so do you know if beans
with a small amount of oily sheen on the bean would affect the grinder in a
bad way?
Help appreciated.

Hi Doug, I have used a 5 cup Yama for about 3 years now without the trivet.
I use the small element at about 7-8 After filling with hot water. in my
experience you you more likely to break it with rough handling.
