    Elusive god shot.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Despite all the expense and effort, the god shot remains elusive. Even the gifted baristas among us, only manage them occasionally. With all our technology, what's stopping us from getting a better strike rate?

    Ps just wondering.

    Ps 2 do we even want a god shot everytime?

    99% strike rate here. Izzo Pompei and Monolith Conical.

    In response to PS 2- yes we do!

    That's all well and good, but what are you doing wrong the other 1% of the time?

    I would say it’s the combination of lever and Monolith. The Monolith helped me to go from a strike rate of roughly 75% to 99%

    Happens occasionally when swapping beans if I forgot to adjust the grind setting

    What grinder did you have before the monolith?

    and did you get the tin coated burrs or running with the standard burrs,

    Immediately before the Monolith I had a Robur set up for single dosing which was still excellent but the Monolith is definitely a noticeable step up in terms of consistency and taste.

    I have the red speed burrs.
