  1. Hi all I have a Hario V60-02 server set and my pouring kettle only arrived last weekend so this past week I have been using it properly for the first time, and as you have probably guessed from the title my results have not been good. I saw this video on youtube it is one of almost thousands of V60 videos available but the only one where I know the person is using the same grinder as me, a Hario Ceramic Slim. I contacted the user and he said the grind setting he uses for V60 is, turn the adjustment nut as tight as it will go (finest) then unwind it 8 clicks. This I used as a starting point but in all my resulting brews I am getting a strong/dark taste to the coffee which is not smooth at all and it makes the coffee bland in that I cannot "taste" the coffee. I started using the usual 60g/1L so 12g/200ml and I have tried everything from up dosing to 14g/200ml and even changing my grind from 5 clicks up to 12-13 clicks but I just cannot escape this dark taste. I have always left my water standing for however long it takes me to grind the coffee and it is standing in a glass serving vessel for probably 30+sec before I transfer it to my pouring device so I have eliminated scorching the grinds. My timing is pretty good I finish pouring 200ml in 2min and it comes through anywhere between 2 min –2.20-2.30 I have seen so many V60 videos and in all of hem it looks easy(ish) but I must be jinxed or something. I was just wondering if anyone has any idea what the hell is going on here as I have just about gone through a whole 250g bag of beans without 1 decent cup and it is frustrating. Many thanks HLA91
