We often have customers come in for beans and tell us they can’t get the ‘crema’ on their coffee. And then ask, what grind setting should I use? Unfortunately there’s no magic number setting for all grinders. Although grinders all work in a similar way some have different adjusting direction and without seeing the grinder it’s difficult to answer. You need to understand the principles behind espresso and grinding, and then make adjustments accordingly.
If you’re in this frustrating situation you can read our blog on ‘How to find the right grind for your coffee machine’. If you’re still struggling your welcome to book in a training slot.
