On the Starbuck's Solis model (apparently no longer available), the finest and the next to finest setting are about the only usable settings. I would expect to start at the second or third to finest set point and work from there.
I think an inexpensive 0.1 gram scale is a nice tool for newbies... it helps control one variable so you can keep dose consistent or controlled. For example, if the finest setting and 14 grams is too fast, you could try 16 grams, etc.
Thanks jesawdy, that's the kind of response I was looking for. As I stated I had done an extensive search and was unable to find where anyone had posted the settings for the combo I have. Your response is about where I'll start, probably around 3.
I have a scale in the kitchen, hadn't thought about using it.
Excellent idea, thanks again.
