    Interesting concept, I sometimes use an espresso blend or single origin and add 25% lighter roast and mix them together and then grind, produces some interesting results!!!

    Good in theory if they will extract at the same particle size.... Out with the refractometer to see what's actually in the cup ...

    Hope you're well gm...

    You certainly don't. You just need two bags of beans and a bowl in which to mix them on different days

    Now I'm a full hopper guy (weighing after grinding, not before), so that's why this method works for me.

    Sure. I don't single dose, but I only put enough in the M4D for the day's use, plus enough surplus to ensure that the last grind doesn't popcorn. In fact, I'm 'dynamic blending' presently as I had a bit of a Garry while roasting the Indonesian C's and am experimenting with the best use for them.

    Goes back 20+ years, but nevertheless good fun... I recall experiments in cafes I played in back in the early 90s with 2 grinders used to deliver half-caf...

    I couldn't help myself this morning Paul. With all this talk of Yemen going on I cracked open my bag of Ismaili at day 9. As suspected, it hasn't rested enough. Needs 14 days I find. Closed the bag up and back to the Limu Kossa! First world problem if ever there was one!

    and the first gram or two of the 5g from one grinder is probably yesterdays grind....... I would run an empty hopper mix what you like and then drop them in as others have suggested already
