Wow. What a great coffee site. I have done a lot of reading on your forum.
My family loves their coffee first thing in the morning. We only use only two formats: French Press (my daughter

Lots of fresh bean in Vancouver...

JJ Bean, 49th Parallel on West 4th, and others...

The current Baratza Virtuoso does all grinds well -
I know as I have 3 of them.

Thanks for the kind words.

Have you tried the Capresso Infinity grinder? It seems to get good reviews on the internet. I did not see much discussion on the coffee crew forum. Just curious...
Thx

Not a big fan -

what I have tried that is at a similar
price-point is the Bodum Antigua--

about $100 -- and yes I need to review the
one that bodum-USA gave me.

We bought the Virtuoso and picked up fresh roasted beans from 49th Parallel (decaf & signature blend). We accomplish our first new year

Ah. Tough question.

answer: Experiment!

French press = coarse ground --
I am not at home so I cannot even recall
how the Virtuoso is calibrated -- uses symbols
I think...

Hmmmm... coarse coffee is sort of the
consistency of Instant coffee crystals -
if that helps... lemme see...
drip coffee is kind of like coarse sand.
Espresso, when ground properly, clumps
as it comes out the grinder exhaust.

To me more technical? Uhm. You could
google \"coffee grind\" to see if there
is a photo tutorial of what the
different grinds look like.

Gives me an idea for a article
for when I come back from Hawaii.
