Yemeni Coffees

Gevi 2-in-1 grinder & pourover

Hi, There's a FB group where Gevi is answering some questions: {link} Fabian is one of my favourite coffee youtubers. He has promised to do an espresso focused follow-up. The grinder and burrs are probably optimised for pour-over. It's a stepped grinder with 10 steps in the espresso range, so that might be a bit limiting. My drink of choice...

How much ground espresso do you recommend using in the double basket, I've heard anything from 14.5 up to 18 grams of coffee. Just thought I would ask the experts, thanks in advance for your help.
