Everything was going fine until I got some ultra fresh beans and now the setting that worked is giving me a fast and thick pour with crema that doesn't last. I tried tightening it up a bit and choked the puck. I am having a hard time finding the happy medium. Any tips?
Option 1: Set to the second setting from 0 and tamp lightly maybe 3-5lb with 14g of coffee.
Option 2: Go out and buy a Nylock nut to replace the stepped mechanism. I currently have my set to about 10 o'clock from 0, 6 o'clock facing me. If you have a digital caliper I can give you an exact measurement setting. For .75 cents it's a great steppless mod.
PM if you need more info.
