Detailed Commentary

useless manual.  consistant, great product if:

  1. fill basket with 14 g. cofee (scale helps)and tamp hard
  2. get top grinder and adjust to 25 sec to produce 2.5 oz run
  3. standardize temp by a) warming up first b)running water pump till lamp relights C) wait 30 sec then shoot!
  4. Roast your own coffee so its never more than a few days old
