Hi all,

I recently calibrated my Baratza Virtuoso (586) and made it grind finer. Unfortunately it seems to me like the grind is less consistent than before; especially for the coarse grind settings. I recognized quite a lot of fines.

Has anyone experienced the same issue?

Cheers,
Silvio

Silvio,

When I check out my Baratza grinder, I do a little cleaning between 'settings'.  Otherwise, there will be some carryover from the previous setting that mess up the test.

However, if you grind consistently at (say) 24 and you still see an uncommon amount of fines, then you have an problem.

Hi,

thanks for reminding me to clean my grinder from time to time =) I set to a coarser setting, did some cleaning and my grind was far more consistent. But I am still wondering whether the calibration can effect the consistency...
