Subject: Coffee grind question
 

I own a Bodum Bistro electric Burr grinder. What grind setting is best for a auto drip coffee maker? I want something a bit finer then Pre-ground coffee so I can get stronger tasting coffee. For an idea of what I'm talking about I'm looking for a grind setting that would work for a Bunn coffee maker.

I'm gonna ask you the obvious question: do you use freshly roasted beans? The reason I ask is, that you compare your output to preground. If you use beans roasted within two weeks, you'll get a much more flavored coffee and experience a larger difference than with grind settings.

Yes, I use fresh roasted beans. I usually use beans that were roasted within the week. I have decided to use 1180 grams of water to 65 grams of coffee and I also do own a scale. The french press setting I use Is "4" So I would go a notch finer than that? 3?

I own a Bunn Phase Brew 8 Cup (40 oz up to "8" on carafe). It has a bigger brew funnel and taller filters. It can hold at least 75 grams of coffee max, so I should be fine. It also heats the water up to temperature and releases the water through a unique Sprayhead that spray's the water like a shower head continuously over the coffee for better extraction. I'll try that ratio and see how It comes out, thanks!

I got It as an online item at a target store for $50.00! You can get It new for $100.00 or more. I'm getting a replacement from them soon because the one I still have has a bad sprayhead and won't spray the water correctly. Since I'm getting the new one I decided to ask those questions on here so I can get better coffee with It. Where did you find this information for ratio's and extraction percentage? Trying to gain more smart's with coffee :D

I'll have to take a look at those books sometime. I could use something like that for extra information and help when I need It. Here's an update on my french press adventures (I know, wrong forum lol) I have tried setting +4 and 900 grams of water to 55 grams of coffee. Still coming out kinda bad :( Any other suggestion's?
