As far a setting it, do you mean at first if you leave it set for espresso or that it doesn't keep adjustment very well? I'm pretty new to all of this espresso stuff and need a new grinder but am on a budget. I also would like a manual that I can throw in the car when weekend camping, Size is not an issue but want something quality. (Champagne taste, beer budget. Story of my life)
I have grinders that will cover my other coffee needs so this will be espresso only.
The E will hold adjustment just fine and as the adjustment ring has a finer thread you have more rotation for a given change in grind size which means it is easier to dial in. As has been suggested if you can deal with the additional expense the Pharos is the way to go. It is not a back pack grinder but it will fit in a car just fine and it will grind rocks if you want.
