The revival of this thread has been very helpful and there is just one obstacle and that is when I reduced the amount from practically 20g down to 16g my Espro Tamper "bottoms out" on all 3 of the double baskets I have.
So.... I will try to search around my minor stock of smaller diameter tampers to make sure to get the good tamp. What do you all do to avoid this ?
Secondly, I noticed my pucks are not solid on the top plain, pock marked in the center and more mushy when the puck gets ejected with the lower dose ?? This could be due to the tamper not getting completely into the basket.
One good thing is the flow is more consistent, finer and darker longer and really looks better than anything I've been doing previously, so if 16g is better, I wonder what 14g will give
Also relating back to the grinder setting, at 16g my Kony is wound way back much closer to the factory settings maybe less than 8 notches away now. Maybe I've been way off the mark about my process.
thanks guys !!
