Sometimes my V60 will clog up super quick. Like on the first pour. Even grinding on a medium setting.
I have a fellow ode grinder, a Kinu m47 and generally drink Africans.
What am I doing wrong?

One cause might be having a higher percentage of fines in your grounds. These would tend to clog the filter paper. I think conical grinders generally produce a wider range of grind sizes than flat burr grinders, and this includes more fines from a conical at any particular grind size setting. The Ode is a flat burr grinder and should produce a more uniform sized grind. You probably need to grind a bit coarser, and I suspect you will have better luck fixing your problem dialing in the Ode rather than the Kinu. I really am not sure, since I have used neither grinder. Just a guess based on the two types of burr sets.

What is your typical recipe?

I find Ethiopian coffee in particular pushes me into using coarse grind settings but without detail of the recipe itself it is hard to help troubleshoot.

Indeed look at the post mentioned above. Also the Kinu does a very bad job at pourover even with the pourover burrs.
