Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.

Appears to be coffee ground buildup. Are your beans typically covered in oil like a dark roast or some type of flavoring? If so I would recommend a bean less oily or more routine cleaning.

You should be able to remove the burr and clean the residue out with cotton swabs or paper towel.

Hi, is not the beans. I try with differents origins/brands and the same thing always happens, i think it is something mechanical .

Check the bean exit path/chute is not blocked. Maybe there's build up preventing the beans from exiting so it ends up regrinding all the beans in the chamber.
