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.

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?).
