It is hard to get the last gram over that hump without tapping the jar, which then loosens the fines stuck to the glass. I would like a second jar that is thinner and lighter, with very straight sides, and one made from a hard plastic Lexan for travel (no breakage) would be awesome. Anyone have a good link to a place on the www to buy jars that fit?
^^^^^^^This! I'm finding the same issue, but very, very minor in the grand scheme of things.
Really loving the Lido so far. I have a feeling my Rocky grinder is purely going to be reserved for times when we have a lot of folks over at the house drinking coffee and speed is paramount.
I have been playing with the Aeropress, French press yesterday when the folks stopped by, and espresso shots and it has been fantastic in each regard. Still getting use to the optimal settings, but so far all the grinds look fantastic. As others have mentioned previously, for the same amount of beans, the Lido grinds faster than my Hario Minimill.
Today I have probably had my best cups in the Aeropress going with Jeremy's setting above ---> 1 and 3/4 turns from zero and the same coffee...Guat. Huehue (albeit the caffeinated version and a little younger @ 1.5 days post roast - City/City+). Inverted/17g/230ml/1:15 steep + 30s press. Smooth and oh so sweet cherries and apple!
I can't thank Doug and Barb enough for answering all my annoying (pre and post purchase) emails and questions on the phone. This is my first OE product purchase and it will most certainly not be my last!
Lastly, as Sam stated above the Tech video is very useful and helped give me some additional insight/background on my " going below zero" related question.
