The Blair Witch Bean-Grind Project
Time is to replicate the quantity that is ground.Btw, on top of being able to adjust grind size, it also has an adjustment for time. Is the time adjustment simply for how quickly I want to handle the amount of grinds coming down, or does it effect the quality of the grind as well ?
I don't have my portafilter yet, the machine comes tomorrow. But I can do the rest tonight.Time is to replicate the quantity that is ground.
Grab a scale.
Tare it so that the porta filler reads zero
Grind 12 seconds and weigh.
8 grams is a single shot
15 grams is a double.
Record the amount of time it takes to get both 8gr and 15gr.
You can grind a double or single every time using the time setting for each.
That way you don't have to go to the scale every time.
I "believe" your machine is going to be a semi-automatic where you "program the pulls".I don't have my portafilter yet, the machine comes tomorrow. But I can do the rest tonight.
Thanks for the tip
Mike is right; Adjusting to a coarser grind is okay with or without anything in the burrs, but adjusting to a finer grind should be done when the burrs are empty.
I made sure I went to finest before loading beans so I could move course from thereI don't know about the grinder but be careful when getting finer. What I mean is it is safer to adjust the grind when the grinder is empty.
I'm certain someone else can say this better than I can.
Breville Cafe Roma? I bought one in August 2017. The rubber gasket is now gone (replacements are fairly cheap), and it no longer heats very well (bigger problem). Seems to me these things should last more than 2½ years.Breville Roma checking in!
Had it a year, daily use: no complaints.
