I was looking over specs for the Solis Master 5000 and it says for dryer beans use a finer grind and for oilier beans use a coarser grind. When making espresso's wouldn't you want to use a fine grind no matter what the roast?

Instructions? You mean this thing has instructions? That must be what's in that bag of stuff still in the box! I adjust my grind bases on the drink(s) I'm going to dispense without regard to the bean's complexion. John - who is going to read that book someday
John, you have the idea. Reading instructions is for those who are prissy and panty-wastes. Now, there's an old term I haven't heard in years. Being blind, I get out of reading instructions, and it works just fine. [grin] I'm sure my Mazzer SJ had instructions, but why read them and spoil the fun of learning by doing?

From: "Mike & Tonya Connell" <Snip> Yes, but to achieve the same shot time grind will vary. Degree of bean roast being one of the variables...

Be careful about reading that book John. You know how it goes, "To whom much is given, much is required." Being able to claim ignorance (and in my case, quite convincingly) can be a real asset. Politicians have a whole doctrine around the concept and look how well it's served them!
