I use a Preciso.  I doubt the settings match the Vario.  But I grind a little coarser than drip, and use 55 secs. on the Trifecta.  Have you experimented a bit with different turbulence settings?

Also, I up-dose to 30 g. coffee per 12 oz. water.

I have to say, I am thoroughly addicted to using my Trifecta!

Posted February 2, 2013 link

I have - I usually use either :45 or :50 and usually either C or D but I sometimes use A or B depending on the coffee.  I'm currently using a crappy Cuisinart burr grinder and I have to almost put the setting in the espresso range just to get a coarse drip that isn't too coarse.

It's quite frustrating but thankfully the trifecta is very forgiving.  I'm thinking once I get the Vario and get it dialed in that my coffee will taste much better.

Barkingburro,

I just think your username is easy to screw-up. If you go back to your ROASTe follow-up review for the Trifecta MB, I had asked you a question, and thinking your username was barking'burrito', I addressed you Mr. Burrito. Now that I think about it, I hope you weren't offended. But then you did reply and address me as 'russian'kiosk. Ha ha ha! Take care!

Jim

Hi all,

Just received a Trifecta MB and a Baratza Vario-W. I would love thoughts, recommendations, opinions, experiences and what you do to make an amazing cup of coffee with it. Beans, techniques, superstitions, whatever...

Thank you all in advance,

Steve

PS: Brewed up some fresh Kona beans with it over the weekend ( coarser setting, 45 sec, C agitation) and it made a pretty delicious cup o' coffee.

HI Steve,

Welcome to the club, the more the merrier! I'm a little down in the dumps today because I had to package mine up and send it off to Bunn for a 1,500 cup tune-up. Seems the shower head mechanism needs to be adjusted a bit to keep it from tilting and lifting under pressure during the press-out phase. It kept raising up, exposing the seals and then letting the air escape during press-out. Started out as a random thing a couple of months ago and became worse. Amanda said they would take care of it and get it back to me ASAP. Unfortunately no loaner :-), so I'm using the Nissan insulated french press from our camping supplies in the meantime. Coffee tastes great, but dang, boiling water and then those four minutes seem like eternity. Can't wait to get the Trifecta back. Take care!

Jim

Sorry to hear it, Jim! You're talking about the part that the latch lowers and raises, right? Wonder if they'll repair or replace?

Posted February 4, 2013 link

Actually, I don't think it has to do with the latch handle, for that stays put during the press-out. The shower head itself, seems to be spring-loaded a bit and during the press-out, just the shower heads tilts and lifts up. More so next to the brew chamber handle than next to the body of the brewer. During the press-out, I can take a flashlight and shine it in the space above the brew chamber's lip and see just the shower head slowing lifting, exposing the fins of the seal, one by one, until I hear a "pffft" and the press-out stops. Maybe the spring is fatigued and can no longer keep the shower head within the chamber under pressure. Only seems to happen with 12 oz cups, but that's all I ever brew, so is it is an issue. I'm sure Bunn will make everything well again. And since I'm in Illinois, I'm keeping my finger's crossed that my Trifecta's return from the mothership will be by Friday. I will update here on what they found. Take care!

Jim
