Subject: grinder settings for different roasts
 

been using a local espresso blend roast date unknown but i was told roughly a week. seems to be good through my vario. however i picked up some black cat 5 days off roast and am having a hard time dialing in on my vario. completely different on the grind time and seems I have to set it at least a macro lever finer. pour seems to start out good then quickly speed up and blonde out instead of uniform pour throughout. starting to wonder if it is the grinder. I have had it break once when the calibration screw seemed to come up missing after trying to re-calibrate. is it normal to have such a huge variation between roasts?

Yes, it is. Or at least, it can be.

Different roasting levels, different coffee beans, different age of beans...
