My first attempt produced a cup that is surprisingly sweet, clean, and syrupy, but lacking some depth (using a washed Yirgacheffe). My total time was around 2:30, including 1 min of preinfusion, so I'm thinking I need to tighten up the grind and press a bit slower.
John can you provide a description of your grind? Closer to FP grind or the V60 side of the brew spectrum?
I'm still working on the grind parameters. For my first two attempts, I simply tightened the grind from where I'd had it for the Espro, to where it might work well for a Chemex. I won't know if that's optimal until I try some variations on either side of that setpoint (although the press stage would indicate I'm close, since there's substantial resistance without stalling).
