  • Breville Smart Grinder grind question

    so just got the Smart Grinder™ Model BCG800XL - my first grinder.
    My question has to do with the grind - i just did a few tests adjusting the grind from most course (tick #1) up to tick #4 and then tick #7.
    I can't tell the difference between the grind. Even when closing my eyes and feeling the grind i can't tell the difference.
    Shouldn't there be an obvious difference between these?
    I called customer support but they didn't really have an answer for me...
    will probably return it to Bed and Bath and try another one or maybe just go with a baratz - for now using for pour-over but maybe one day will get into expresso...

    CRB, you will not be able to tell the difference by feeling the grinds. There will be a change in coarseness/fineness. Try it and see using your V60, Clever Dripper, Kalita or Chemex. Use taste & extraction time as a guide to grind setting. This grinder does a very good job for manual brewing.
