I pulled one double-shot with the new Blue Bottle beans. Here are the results; I'm going to hold off on everything until I get some feedback from you guys. Thanks again for all the help!
first extraction results:
- Blue Bottle Hayes Valley - Roasted Sept. 11 and rested since Sept. 13
- Blue Bottle sent a card recommending: Dose - 20g, boiler 201.5F, extraction 32s, yield 20-20.5g
It's not the worst thing I've ever tasted, but i would not describe it as "good" either. For those who are familiar with the Breville I used a grind setting of 24.
- Dose (automatic) 23g
- Extraction time 32s total, including 7 seconds pre-infusion at 60% pressure
- Yield - 46.5g (I stopped the extraction sooner than blue bottle suggested because this yielded close to 60mls)

by the way, thanks guys for all the replies and help. i am really excited to get this machine dialed in -- as best as possible, anyway -- and appreciate the feedback.
