    Double layer grind

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,

    I have stumbled onto something, just wondering if I am wacky or there are alike out there.

    Basically I fill 3/4 of fine ground coffee and 1/4 coarse one. *I smooth the fine layer with a fork before adding the 2nd coarse layer, AND tamp it real hard. *

    I get less channeling problem this way. *My theory is the coarse layer provides hundreds tiny passages to the fine layer so that water goes thru coffee evenly. * What do you think? * Thanks.

    Sounds like a bit of stuffing around, what sort of Grinder and machine are you using, are your beans fresh, and what are the shots like?
    Has channelling been a problem? :)
