You might find a bit of a reduction in your usual grinds dose make a lot of difference. Just 1/2g did in my case.

Not doubting you, John, but can you elaborate on why, please?

The grinds out of Niche seem to expand more or take up more space when the water goes in. Same bean, same batch, same roaster, same basket and i had been using 14g for ages. Dropping to 13.5g produced a much stronger drink. When I initially mentioned this some one else found a reduction did the same as well.

My birthday today so my lovely wife bought me a porlex mini grinder to take to work where I use an Aeropress.

It will save me grinding coffee in the morning to take in and then ending up with either too much or not enough.

First coffee tried today using my home Aeropress. 17g of coffee ground 7 clicks back and is much coarser than my normal Espresso grind I use as I dont adjust grinder setting normally.

The coffee is smoother and cleaner.

Hand grinding is hard work.

Saw these guys mentioned like 3 times in the space of a couple weeks and saw they were reasonably cheap and only 3 euro for delivery to germany, so went for it. Just picked up from the neighbour, will report back

Arrived from Ebay a short while ago and after a strip down to assess its condition, I am now waiting for parts.

Hopefully have it up and running for Xmas...…..

Today my new scales (old ones drowned) arrived and are not as I expected - hopefully to be sorted soon

Shame. Are they definitely faulty or do they just need to be calibrated?

Calibrated several times - they act very strange - made a video, but too big to post.

 

After calibration (PASS)

1. Tare

2. Place calibrated weight on scale - shows random amount e.g. 245

3. Take off weight and shows as e.g. 50g

4. Place on weight again - shows as  e.g.154g

 

I'm at a loss...
