Thanks for the reply.  I use about 35g to 1 liter of water.

Posted November 25, 2013 link

This ratio is VERY low. I will typically use 1:16 or 1:17 as a starting point for drip or vac pot (that's 59 to 62.5g per liter). Even for the Krups  Moka Brew, which is about the most efficient brewing method I've used, my normal recipe is 37g per liter.

 
Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

+1

18:1  coffee:water for drip.  55g:1000ml water.   If anybody is wondering I have always gotten good results with this ratio. I know hot water changes in weight but g:ml has always worked well. :)

Capresso Infinity grinders aren't a bad choice for the price but they do retain grounds more than other grinders. You can get the Baratza Encore for $129---that will give you a better consistent grind and far less grounds  retention. There are 3 Infinity models---they are identical except for the exterior casing. 1 has a Stainless case $140, other 2 have plastic cases... Chrome finish $100 or Black $90. These are retail prices---last yr I picked up an Infinity w/blk case $72, using a 20% off coupon in a local store. I use a Baratza Virtuoso daily but the Infinity came in handy for backup while waiting for my Baratza replacement grinder.

A great choice and biggest bang for the buck is definitely the Baratza Encore. If your budget is realiy tight then go for the Infinity Black case for lowest cost.

I picked up a stainless unit ($90) and it works great for drippers (I use the Brazen), as previously mentioned it does retain some grounds but I just lean it forward to a bit to drop all the grounds in the hopper.
