Much the same advice as the previous two posts. Looks like you've got some big fragments of coffee among some more powdery grinds.
I had a Maestro+ (predecessor of the Encore). I certainly found it was more consistent at coarse grinds more towards filter ie more to "mid range".
For French Press although you want coarse you also want consistency, even if it means a finer grind to get that consistency, with possibly a shorter steep than you would traditionally associate with FP.

Here Is my setting "18" on my encore. Like I said I use this grind for my Auto-Drip machine (Flat Bottom) While we're talking about It, do you think I should use something coarser or finer for Auto-drip? How does this look for FP?
