I was preinfusing at 2ml/s until hitting 4 bar. This was a bit slower and longer pre-brew than my standard method. Then wait 30 seconds with no flow. Then a medium-high pressure (9 bar) extraction until I hit the target weight.
I find it very interesting that my ratio was much less than 1:2, others have enjoyed a bit over 1:2. Not much in the middle.

Their coffee might be on the pricey side, but always wait for their specials, which seem to happen almost weekly. They just won another award...Roast Magazine winner ...2019 Roaster of the Year...for what it's worth.
My favorite from them is Crema Dolce. It's a more forgiving bean and almost as much complexity and enjoyment as Leam Hammer, without (in my experience) the difficulty in dialing in.
