heheheh made a grim on my face, so 19grams then, running out of beans but then its worth it to test hmmmm

so the 38wet here is less than 2oz right? will the ratio follow if i increase the volume?

Posted December 5, 2012 link

Yes, the ratio applies across the whole range of doses that fit the Breville basket.

I sometimes use beans two days after roasting if that's all I've got. These are just guidelines, not unbreakable rules.

Posted December 5, 2012 link

Illy is good for a year, it's packed in inert gas.

Not a fan of pre-ground coffee, I was talking about the whole bean.

It depends on the bean and the roast.

I mostly rest it for 3 - 4 days and drink it well before 14 days, because I roast 12 oz. at a time and it runs out.

But I've had some older coffee that was pretty darn good too.

Anyhow, I'm done for the day, have fun.

You've discovered the other reason for a heavier puck, they don't stick. At 18g you'll get a lot of stuck pucks. 19g pucks never stick.
