I will say that they are more capable of espresso than Cv2 ever had been for me. I installed them into my Orbit, no alignment needed and about 50 microns from touch to lock, which is the the same distance I'd aim for with Cv2 or MP burrs. Using Regalia Las Perlitas from Nov 8, I pulled 18:50 in 25 seconds with a 7 bar peak (my Bianca being set to 7.5 bar max) at about 40 microns from touch. I tried the same coffee on Cv2 in my P64 and could not generate pressure beyond 4 bars, and the same shot ran in about 12 seconds instead. Touch to lock on Cv2 is 40 microns in the P64.

I pulled Mizen Omni out of the Orbit to install Cv3 so I don't have a reference there, but my overall experience with those burrs is that they're more workable for espresso than Cv2 and tend to be able to build pressure further from touch point. I would often pull at 70-100 microns from touch, perhaps 50 at the closest with very light coffees.
How do you find the Cv3 compares to the Cv2 burrs for filter brew? I'm in the market, and seeing plenty about how the Cv3 is better for espresso, but little about how it compares with filter...

I haven't done any filter with mine yet.

Wanting to know the same thing. Will be using my DF64 equally for filter and espresso.

Has anyone here tried filter & espresso with both Mizen OMs and CV3 burrs?
