Subject: Moka and Brikka Question - Preciso grinder question
 

I am curious what the optimal particle size for brewing with the Moka and Brikka models. Could anyone let me know what setting on a Preciso grinder would be perfect for these brewing methods?

Thanks!

 
My name is Kayes, and I'm obsessed with coffee.

I find that espresso grind really clogs mine up and the water can't get through.  So I would start slightly coarser and work your way up.  I have a Capresso Burr Grinder and usually grind it a few notches below the halfway mark.  I would also avoid tamping it down.  If you do, do so lightly.  This gives me a very strong cup and works well for Cafe Cubanos too.
