So, I've been loving the combination of the Ode and Ratio Eight. Recently bought a Fellows XP pour-over set to give that a shot (you never have enough ways to make coffee). I was watching video by Fellow about using the pair, and they recommend an Ode setting of 1.

Huh? A setting of 1?

Now I'm confused. I've always used it set at 6.5 for the Ratio. I'll try it both ways, but an curious about others' experience.

Thanx in advance.

James Hoffman recommends grinds at the lower end of the Ode for the Hario V60 anyway. So far, I find myself using an Ode setting of around 3.0 for the Stagg, most of the time. For one cup.

In general, those settings make sense. You're going to want a finer grind for the Stagg XF than you would for drip coffee.

I took my Ratio Eight back home from my little office brewing setup, (where my Ode is also). I've used the Stagg XF a little bit, but the suctioning of the paper filter to the bottom of the brewer makes it a no-go for fine grinds unless you use something like a Cremina showerhead or something similar to float the filter off the bottom a bit.

A setting of 1 on the newer burr design will choke the brew and make a mess, probably regardless of (reasonable) dosing. It's easy to pause while manually pouring water in a pour-over, but take your eye off a auto-drip like the Ratio just for a second, and you can easily end up with a big mess!

I bought an Ode for my wife to use because she's afraid to touch my monolith. I figured I'd give it a try and it surprised me how fine I had to grind.

For my PO with Origami + Kalita wave 185 filter I had to grind at 2 or 3 to get a comparable grind to what I use with my monolith if that helps.

If I thought the Kafatek was too expensive, I am sure I would be very happy with the Ode.

I'm getting darn close to extremely coarse espresso grind settings on my Monolith Flat with the Tricolate.
