Subject: Does anyone know of a link to some detailed instructions for a mod
 

I've decided to improve my coffee though my budget and the fact that there just aren't any coffee machines or grinders available in India and my budget is still limited is causing a lot of problems.

I plan to modify my Bodum Bistro Burr grinder to get a finer grind fit for making a real espresso. Does anyone know of a link with a video demo or detailed instructions of doing the same. What I've found is the basic DIY guide, I really don't want to s** up my machine trying my experiments. And after a mod can the grinder still be used to obtain fairly rough grinds (for a filter for instance)

HI,
I typed " Bodum bistro burr grinder" into the little link you get when you click on the mag. glass (upper left of screen, it is labeled "SEARCH ") and I got this, Click Here (www.coffeegeek.com)

which took me to:
"Bodum Bistro burr grinder MOD for fine/espresso"
all in less time than it took to answer you here. Please do search for answers before asking again.

But to answer here again, yes you can get it to grind more fine. Yes it will still grind coarse, NO it will NEVER be a good espresso grinder, there are just too many plastic parts inside and you will nevewr get the consistency you need when grinding for espresso.

Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!
