This has been pretty much my exact workflow as well for the last week. Except with the Lido 3, the basket fits inside the grounds cup when screwed on. So I grind directly into basket, oe leveling tool, and press fit screen on. Super simple and my shots have tasted just fine.mborkow wrote:I've been using the rake (happily) since I got it but I don't WDT *or* tamp anymore; I funnel the ground coffee from catch-cup to basket, rake, press fit the screen on top of the bed, and add water.
