  • Milk based Coffee. Best grind setting

    Hi everyone.
    I own a Jura 9 and only ever drink Fifi's Blend, Organic from Coffee Snobs. I drink a double shot flat white and have the Jura set at 2 of 3 re grind"
    Is finer or courser better for this bean type of blend milk based drinks?
    Hope that's not a "How long's a piece of string" type question.
    Thanks for any advice.

    the grind should be the same for all drinks.
    Whatever setting produces 50-60ml of espresso in 25-30 seconds

    While not familiar with the entire Jura lineup I assume it's a one-touch does everything machine (refrains from inserting personal opinion...)
    So I'd programme it to just pour a double espresso shot and see what it does.

    Those machines measure the quantity of water passing through so you should always get a 60ml double
    But if the grind is too coarse it will probably pour too fast,
    And too fine will pour too long.

      Is there anything you don't like about the current coffee your machine makes? The best way to find out is to try it yourself. It could be worth a try going a little finer with the grind. A slower pour should produce a stronger shot which might cut through milk better but might also add some bitterness. Why not try a different blend such as Espresso Wow or try the Tanzanian Machare Estate?

        Thanks

        Thanks Robbks and Flynnaus for the informative replies.
        Yep, I suppose I should just try the grinds myself. I was just wondering what the general consensus is.
        Re trying other blends, I really enjoy Fiefy's blend so didn't want to stray. Nothing ventured nothing gained though eh.
        Thanks again folks and best wishes.
