Hi everyone, well after looking around at some used grinders, i took the plunge and got a 2013 baratza vario. I was trying to get it dialed it tonight. I used a scale to measure out about 7 grams of ground coffee. at 4F on the setting, it seems to make a nice shot. I wanted to get your opinions on these settings? it seems that most people go maybe 1 or 2 clicks from the "espresso" setting...i'm a bit courser at 4. When i do grind the coffee, it manages to just cover the bottom surface of the single PF basket...is this too low? not enough coffee?? any advice would be great.thanks fab
Advice? RTFM, read the freakin' manual!! LOL That is a mantra on CG, as is GRINDER FIRST! Calibrate your empty grinder as suggested in the manual. That should give you a great starting point for 50/75% of all FRESHLY ROASTED QUALITY/SPECIALTY coffee. Not supermarket, canned junk.
