Posted Sat Jul 28, 2012, 8:03pm 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)
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.
In real life, my name is Wayne P. Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!
