Topic: uneven grind (4 msgs / 80 lines)
1) From: Les
I went to the Mazzer Major to grind for a couple of shots.  As I
flipped the grinder on I noticed it was set for Vac Pot, so I just
cranked it down to my espresso setting as it ran.  I was going to
pitch the two shots, but I thought, "Why not see what happens."  Becky
wasn't home, Luke my autistic son can't talk!  So I loaded up the
triple basket, gave it a very awesome and careful tamp.  What a way
cool display of coffee shooting in about 40 different directions.  Now
I know what multiplex channeling looks like!  Now I hope Becky doesn't
get suspicious with the floor being so clean!  I corrected my grind
and I am enjoying a very fine shot of post roast blend of Harar Horse,
Brazil 143, and El Salvador Miel.  I was taught again how important an
even grind makes or breaks the shot.

Les,

"The espresso machine is an accessory to the grinder, not the other way 
around."

I was waiting for him to say taht he had some new
espresso epiphany, that a grind distribution was
better :)

Sounds like it was quite exciting! (BTW, just in case you'll be setting up 
your Spaniard outside during PNWGIII;-)
