Does anyone find that grind setting must be different for decaf blends, finer or coarser, or is that an irrelevant variable?

I do find that decaf needs a different grind setting, but it could be that the decafs that I have used are roasted to a different level than my espresso shots.

BTW, thanks Dan for the Noble decaf recommendation.

Yes, the Techo-Kecho was awesome. Just finished mine a couple months ago. It produced better espresso than most non-Decaf espressos I've bought from shops during travels this year.

Any options in/around Austria that you guys know of? I checked some of the USA stores and shipping is almost $35+ for a pack of beans that costs $15.

My wife is on her second kilo of the Lusso decaf and she really loves it. Her decaf friends do, too. All drink the Lusso as lattes.
