Topic: Mazzer for Turkish coffee (4 msgs / 85 lines)
1) From: Irene and Lubos Palounek
What is the proper method of adjusting Mazzer mini for Turkish coffee?
I usually adjust our Mazzer "just a little bit" for the 25 seconds 
espresso brewing time.
Foe Turkish coffee, the beans should be ground as fine as possible, 
correct?  What is the proper method of Mazzer mini adjustment for 
Turkish coffee?  (Could I adjust the Mazzer so "fine" that I would 
damage the burrs?)
Thanks for your tips, Lubos.

The smooth perimeter edges of the burrs touch without the actual burrs 
touching.  So if you hear a rubbing sound, don't worry.  I'm not sure a 
Mazzer can grind that fine though.  I've always used a Turkish hand mill. 
No harm in trying.  Maybe it'll get fine enough.

On the Major, it's not possible, Lubos.
When the burrs actually touch, it's on the flat rim at the OD of the burrs.
They're designed so they can touch without harming the cutting edges.
My burrs had been replaced 10years before I got it, and the previous owners
had done a Lot of superfine grinding, since the flats at the rims of the
burrs were shiny.
It literally made coffee dust at that "Zero" setting. True to Domenic's
word, the burrs were very serviceable, not brand new.
Since the beans only "see" the burrs, they think the grinder is brand new
now. My "home grinder" will be a kitchen sentinel for many years, and no
further expense.
Well- maybe I'll add the CO2 or N2 flush all the sooner.

It's not the grinder...

why don't you make it a N2O2 flush,  that way if you somehow tank a
batch of coffee, at least you can laugh about it .....  sorry.... Ill
shut up now.
