sounds good Barry. Took a quick video of a pour this morning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzK49tfnz_o&feature=g-upl

I emailed Baratza tech support about changing grinder settings while briefly hitting the pulse button (on an empty grinder) and they said it should be fine since it's only for a few seconds.

I single dose my Preciso, usually press the pulse button when making macro-adjustment but don't run the grinder when making micro-adjustment.

For the CC1, do you set PID higher than 200 to compensate for the drop in temp from boiler to grouphead?

More knowledgeable people than me may have more info but I believe the software uses an offset so that it measures the boiler temp then essentially estimates the grouphead temp.
I believe this offset is actually adjustable.

What I would do is not worry too much about the number and go by taste.
I usually use 200, but, for example if a coffee is pulling too sour, I might go up on the temp.

Also, I don't always pulse if I'm doing a small micro adjustment.
I also don't pulse going from finer to coarser as I believe there's no issue going that way.
