  1. I have a Rocky, which you adjust by turning the hopper, which just screws the two sets of burrs closer together - very easy to understand. how does the Mahlkonig Vario - or any other grinder of that style, achieve the adjustment. There are coarse and fine sliders on the front, but what's the mechanics of the adjustment inside? purely for curiosity reasons
  2. Hi, As I've posted in the "What did the Postie bring you today" thread, I received a MC2 today. I've been dialing in my coffee beans and had a few questions. Is there a rough rule of thumb for adjusting the fineness setting? I've noticed as you adjust it it clicks as you go round, does anyone know the ratio of clicks to seconds for extraction time? Just because I've noticed the adjustments are very fine and it took me a long time to correct (wasting a lot of beans). I've also noticed there is quite a lot of residual grounds stuck in the chute when it finishes grinding, so I'd imagine a pu
  3. Hi, I was just wondering how you dial in a bean with your mignon. I tend to start with 1/2 settings I.e. 0, 1/2, 1 on the dial. Then fine tune it to the nearest 1/4. Is it worth trying to control it to a finer level?
  4. I've just taken delivery of an E8 from BB with red speed burrs. After running 1.5kg of coffee through I've started dialling in and I'm on about 10 on the scale which puts the adjustment arm around the back of the grinder. I'm not sure if the 0 mark has been set up as genuine zero. I have not got my head around the parallel system yet and I can't tell from the manual, my question is: can you adjust the orientation of the adjustment collar or is it fixed? The manual says it needs to line up with the locking shoe but until I take it apart I don't know if that can be moved as well. Also seems
  5. I've just bought a used Eureka Mythos off a forum member. So far so good (very good) with the results. I would like some advice on adjusting the grind. I've read on the forum that in general you should adjust the grind on a grinder whilst the grinder is running, however, I have watched this video of the Climpson & Sons head of training, and noticed that he doesn't run the grinder when he adjusts the grind, and I couldn't see mention of it in the manual. Thanks in advance
  6. Dear Coffenistas, I have a pressing issue on my mind that I need weeding through. Thought you all could help me out. I have heard so many conflicting views that I don't know what to believe anymore What is the traditional difference between the single and the double shot? Is it simply the size of the basket (deeper for a double shot) -or- adjusting the grind (coarser for a double) -or- the number of portafilter spouts (same extraction time, just split into 1 or 2 shots) -or- perhaps the most controversial... THE EXTRACTION TIME! Can you often customise and combine any of the me
