Fellow Ode brew grinder review

Thanks for making the video. Well done. It appears to confirm the many reports from V60 users who can't seem to get the Ode grind fine enough to induce more than 2 or so minutes of contact time.

Canadian Roaster Recommendations (Was - How to grind for Italian blends)

Thanks for the suggestion. I've heard of Gold Star but have not tried them yet. I only drink straight espresso shots and don't enjoy light/drip roast for Espresso. I think you raised a good point that is a factor for a lot of people which is cost. That isn't my primary concern, taste is. I want the best tasting cup...
