Posted Sat Feb 1, 2014, 7:40pm Subject: Help with Mahlkonig Tanzania/Guatemala grinder settings
I just bought a couple of Mahlkonig grinders for my shop and their grinder settings are just labeled 1-9 (I believe 1 is Turkish and 9 is coarse, and there are quarter settings between each number). Before I waste $50 on coffee trying to find decent grinder settings, can anybody give me ballpark settings for the following uses:
Hario V60 pourover, looking for a medium-fine setting ballpark number
Fetco CBS-2032 dual airpot brewer
Hopefully someone out there can at least point me in the right direction and let me make fine adjustments from there.
I've spent the last 2 hours googling and can't find anything.

2 to 21/2 for espresso, 4 for moka pot, 6 for most drip filters, 8 for plunger, if using generally high grown arabicas. 5 sounds about right for a cloth filter vacpot, 7 for a glass filter pot. Robusta in a blend can complicate things in unpredictable ways at the espresso and finer grind levels.
