    it tasted pretty good. i may have to play with tamp and grind to get it a bit quicker but it tasted ok.
    just tried 2 clicks coarser and it was way too fast i also tamped the crap out of it so i'll try one click in and if thats still too coarse ill have to go back to the previous and tamp lighter shot looked nice though super flufy crema

    Nice video. Got lots of crema, was the shot as good as it looked?
    If you grind a little less fine, can you increase the amount of coffee used on your delonghi?
    I need to try this India Mysore bean.

    most i'v ever managed to stuff into the basket is 13.5g and that was no headroom for the head. maybe if i could take the plastic disc and the gasket out and not crush the filter disc i could squeak maybe 1-2 g extra but thats not possible i'v tried it and it bows the filter. its a known fact that the delonghi baskets only hold 12g or so. annoying but its all you can realisticaly get in them.

    and yes the shot was awesome. and heres where i got the mysore http://www.greenbeanery.ca/bean/cata...d416fb4c784e0d they were cheap so i ordered a 1lb of them.
    aparently the rowanda AA is "bourbon"
