La Pavoni Europiccola (post mill) and 1zpresso K-pro hand grinder


Recommended Posts

Afternoon

I have the above combination and am struggling with getting the grinder dialled in using a dark roast bean from Rave, would appreciate any comments or suggestions from people with a similar set up

Cheers

I guess the question is too fast or too slow? What's the resistance like? I've found dark beans need to be much closer to zero on my aergrind than I would have imagined. How are you tamping? (And are you sure it's an issue with grind size not channelling etc) 

Did someone say coffee?

Thanks, I have tried it on setting 2.5 on the grinder, the lowest 1zpressso recommends for espresso, with a light tamp and it is just on the edge of choking with a light tamp, went up to 3 with a light tamp and it is still on the sour side , GH is at 85-90c, purged false pressure with a 15 sec pre infusion and 25-30 second pull

Go hotter and see if that helps.
