Subject: Upgraded from Rocky to SJ - specs in grind(?)
 

Hi folks,

Iíve been lurking on these forum for ages but have always been able to find whatever I needed via the goodíole search function until now.

I just acquired a lovely SJ doser / timer from eBay to replace by trusty Rocky doserless. Aside from the obvious differences (itís a beast!) I notice that the grind seems to have more Ďspecsí of lighter colour in it (obviously comparing the same beans used in Rocky) - is this normal?

My laymanís concern is that this could be associated with in inconsistent grind, but Iím hoping someone here will tell me Iím wrong!

Burrs are fresh and, Iím using Silvia to brew.

The quality of grind from a properly working SJ (I have no reason to doubt your grinder) will run rings around the quality of grind from Rocky, in SJs sleep.

Well, the grind Ďfeelsí consistent and seems to be producing some great shots Ė so perhaps Iím over-thinking things.
Still curious about the light-specs of colour though!
