Is this what you expected for episode 2? Maybe? Probably? Who knows!
Do share any links in the comments that you think might be relevant and I will keep the main body of this post up to date.
If you want to run a simple test for yourself:
Dial in your grinder as normal.
Microwave some coffee beans until they’re hot.
Grind, pull a shot and check the brew time.
Now adjust the grinder. For reference, my Niche needed to go three steps finer, which is a lot. You can pull a shot straight after heating the beans to check your setting, but these won’t taste great even if the brew time is good.
Microwave some coffee then grind.
Let the grinds cool to close to room temp. Don’t put in the fridge or freezer though.
Pull your shot. Taste and enjoy.
Now - share your thoughts!
