Hey everyone.  So I have a CC1 and I am still always experimenting.  Getting better and better results as I go on.  I was doing some experiments with temperature last night because my shots were sourish.  I just cranked the temperature from my usual 202 up to 206 and BAM! Sourness gone and really good shots.  I might actually even try to go higher with it.  This is with Metropolis Redline Espresso (about 5 days old)

So Anyways.  Is my CC1 just not calibrated correctly?  Is there something I can so to make the temp readout more accurate?

I ended up setting my P9 offset to -12 when I had a CC1. I know the out of box setting was very low so it is possible. I think the guy that bought mine turned the offset down to about -10 or so if  remember correctly.


Here is the thread where I first discussed my issue:

Yeah I feel like 204-205 is where mine operates optimally. I feel like lighter roasts benefit alot from 205, and since i do alot of SOE's I usually just leave it at that. Not sure if its something about the Brazils, but those and darker roast styles seem to play nice with 200-202 to maintain their acidity; they seem to be overextracted much easier (pourosity?).
