Ian's Coffee Stuff
I've just re-read the Clive coffee owners manual on my Duetto and it looks like the factory default offset setting is 18. No idea if that's Fahrenheit or Celsius - presume it's Celsius - which would make it about 32F. That's a fair more offset than you are measuring - though I realise comparing this across machines is complete nonsense.cafeIKE wrote:
Display temperature reads 217°F for current coffee, Tony's Classico. Eric's thermometer reads about 195°F mid shot. I like medium roasts and adjust temperature by taste. Range on the display has gone from 210° to 225°F for outlier coffees. I seldom measure or use Eric's thermometer.
