Ok, I ran a pound through it this morning and actually pulled a couple of shots with it once I ground through those old beans.More H-B info here on the dosered version.
Some very initial thoughts, this is only my second grinder after my Le'lit Pl53.
Hopefully the lack of a removable spill tray won't bug me. The built-in tray is actually very rounded and easy to wipe grinds out of.
I dose into the basket by itself so I removed the portafilter holder.
After just one pound the output was pretty consistent, I dialed the double-cup time and grind to 17 grams and got 17.1, 17.0, and 17.0 on the subsequent 3 doses in 6.5 seconds per the grinder's timer. I'll do more tomorrow after I dial in my grind a little closer, those doses were a little coarse. With no beans in the hopper, just some down in the throat of the grinder, there was enough popcorning to make the timer useless.
As a newbie I didn't know the adjustment collar was spring-loaded, no big deal, just a surprise.
This has stepped adjustment which in my limited testing out of the box today resulted in too big of steps, or at least there was a significant change in grind when changing two steps, from 5 down to 4 1/3. Perhaps once step adjustments will be ok. I assume I can adjust the coarseness/fineness of the steps on the Quamar?
