My comfort blend for espresso at the moment is medium roasted low altitude Vietnamese Caturra. Compared to the light Ethiopians which I do with V60, the sound of grinding is alarmingly different. You can definitely hear the grinder working out harder with denser beans

Thank you for the info. Still early days for me, before any good or bad habits yet to be set in stone. It's a nightmare when you have to unlearn something from muscle memory
so I might as well make it a habit to run it before dosing.
