Subject: What grind settings do you use?  (Capresso grinder preferred)
 

I just bought a Capresso Infinity burr grinder, and am looking for the best settings for each of my brew methods.  What settings do you guys use?  Currently, my favorite machine is the Bialleti stovetop espresso machine that I just picked up.  Second to that is a french press.  I also have a Cuisinart drip machine with gold filter, and an old Senseo pod machine.

If you have a Capresso Infinity, it would be great if you could tell me specifically which of the 16 settings you use for each of your coffee/machine methods.  It's new to me, so I'd like to start with suggestions from experienced coffee geeks!

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try the middle of the fine settings for the Bialleti, middle of the Medium settings for the Cuisinart, and the middle of the coarse settings for the press - then adjust each for taste if needed.

 
I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Thanks, I'll try that.  Nice signature, by the way!
