    Indian Monsoon Malaba AA grind?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello all,
    Got some of the above mentioned bean last month, chucked it in the ol roaster and took it to SC, about CS9, waited 6 days (because it smells like old socks before then)

    Started grinding to find the spot, now on my rocky i generally am grinding between 5-2 on the scale.

    Now i started at 3, overdosed as per usual, tamped, looked a bit coarse, pulled shot.....gusher, moved to 1......gusher, moved to -1, tamped hard, dosed some more, tamped again..... good pour, whats the go, never had to grind this fine before with any other bean, is my rocky out?

    cheers ladies and gents.....
    love this forum, so quick, ill time ya! ;D

    Nope, not the grinder

    I bought some of this pre-roasted as it was one of the best coffees Ive ever had. Took it home and had to dial the Mini finer and finer until I thought this is ridiculous. I tried it as a 10% blend and even that required a fine grind.

    I spose I should have tried an even finer grind but ..well I just didnt. :(
