I agree on getting the Monkey but tend to disagree and suggesting a bunch of
different Single Origins for someone's first learning pulling shots. At
least, Christina's grinder post said "my first foray into espresso". I
believe it's easier to first learn PF technique fill, distribution and
tamping and needed grind adjusting etc to get proper shot flow & timing
sticking with just one. I whole heartily agree Monkey Blend is a great
forgiving blend to start with. Though starting with a Brewtus will make SO
shot temp management a breeze.
OTH the first week I had Miss Silvia I was pulling shots of anything and
everything I had roasted:-)(Or maybe it was even first day I don't remember
for sure, going on 5 years ago...)
Rocky grinder wise if currently happy with the Inifinity for non-espresso
duties I'd do a comparison of the same bean same brewing method each
grinder. If then still happy with the Infinity use it.
