Posted Thu Apr 19, 2012, 7:08am Subject: Kryocera Grinder, OE Lower Bearing UPGRADE KIT, and the Aeropress?
I am new to these boards but I have lurked for awhile.
Anyway, I previously made coffee in my office using a French press. I got the upgrade kit for my grinder to stabilize the burr and get a more consistent grind. From what I understand this kit severely diminishes the grinder's ability to do a good fine grind (which it apparently does well before the upgrade). After years of using my French press, the metal filter is starting to fray and I thought that I would try and Aeropress. As I understand it, the grind for the Aeropress needs to be somewhere between fine and course. Should I leave the Orphan Espresso upgrade kit in or should I take it out? Thanks in advance!
