Topic: Finer drip grind? (3 msgs / 116 lines)
1) From: Paul Goelz
Anyone tried espresso grind for drip?
I don't drink enough espresso to roast separately so I have been 
making espresso from my regular (full city) roast CRLM.  Since I only 
have one grinder that can do espresso, I tried using the same grind 
for espresso and drip and WOW!  The drip coffee made with espresso 
roast is deeper and more flavorful than with my regular drip grind.
Maybe this does not apply to brewers that use water at the proper 
temperature but it sure improved the coffee made in my $35 Mr Coffee.

I've maxed this out and caused clogs..so be careful.
That said, I think there is a "dialing in" appropriate for brewing machines
and there is a difference.  I prefer my brew to be ground very fine--when I
do Aeropress, I go espresso fine and only let the ground extract for 5-10
seconds before pressing it out.  For brew, I back it off just enough where I
would get a really bad 5 second shot if I put them in my pf (maybe a little
further)..  I also noticed a difference in flavor going from a "profiled"
whirly blade grinder to the Mazzer.  The Mazzer-ground coffee somehow has a
crisper taste profile to me that that ground by a whirly.

At times, when I've ground a little too much for a shot, I will mix  
it in with the drip grind for the Technivorm.  The TV seems to be  
very forgiving of uneven grind and of grinding the night before  
(which I do because my early bird hubby wants only to have to stick  
the carafe under the filter holder and flip the switch in the  
morning--and I am a night owl).
