Lagom P100

Lagom P100

Depend on the burr, with HU I'm usually 10-13 notches from zero, with ULF 8-10 notches mostly and Brew 1-3 notches from zero so very close to zero. Users have reported slight differences probably caused by the individual burr set/alignment/espresso machine/beans/traditional vs. turbo flow etc

I recently got a pressure profiling machine, while I

Dosing: 14g, 18g, 19g, 20g, 21g, 22g? What do you use, and why (taste)
