Posted Sun Sep 30, 2012, 6:10pm Subject: Re: HG One: new hand grinder
With fast-turning electric grinders, uniform rotational speed helps maintain grind uniformity. With my 83mm Robur, increasing the rpms from 400 to 500 makes the grind noticeably coarser. To compensate, one must set the adjustment collar about 1.5 fine lines finer.
It is possible that the HG One would be similarly sensitive to grind speed variation. But maybe not, because no one has reported that effect with the Pharos.
I weigh the beans going into the Pharos as well as going into the Versalab. With the MODs on the Pharos grounds retention is NOT an issue, there is more grounds retention in the Versalab and that is not much either. The Kony hold about 30g of grounds in the chute and chamber.
