Total coffee noob here so be gentle. :) I've been noticing a pattern like this in my drip basket every now and then and am wondering if that's normal. I would think with the shower head design the Brazen has, this would be more even, it would seem to me I would not be getting even extraction with the way this looks. Thanks for your help!
Sometimes I see an odd pattern in my basket as well, I assumed it's due to the bloom as it's not always the same from pot to pot. Try either increasing the presoak time, or even just do a manual release on it with a bowl underneath and see how it's releasing water at the shower head. There may be nothing wrong with it at all and it could be just something odd based on how the coffee is settling.
If the coffee still tastes good and everthing else looks fine then you have nothing to worry about.
