This may spur a tangent conversation but IMAWriter said that fresh roasted coffee can be frozen.  I have personally never had success freezing coffee but I was living in South Carolina the last time I tried.  Maybe the humidity had too much condensation.  I don't mean to cause debate or anything but would just like to hear others opinion on the matter.  Every time I have had coffee that we frozen it has tasted "damaged" (for lack of a better word) even if it was vacuum packed or sealed in an air tight container.

Not a tangent at all.  I've been wondering the same thing.  I've researched and found ample confirmation on both sides of the argument but nothing definite.  Interested to hear more for sure from the pro's.

Actually, it IS a bit of a tangent, but as my thinking has been tangential since having double cataract surgery, no problem the tangent stops HERE. :>D

Our own Mark Prince had very favorable comments about the excellent drip/press/vac pot grinds from the Preciso, with MORE than a favorable comparison to the Vario.
Back on topic, one thing to remember when using the permanent filter (an excellent filter, IMO) is grind slightly coarser, especially with beans fresher than 3 days post roast. This will eliminate any chance of over-blooming.
I suggest just a bit finer than Kosher salt to start with. YMMV
