Need a little advice on getting the best from my Rocky.
- Occasionally the grinder will stop grinding: no ground coffee comes out. I assume its stuck and suspecy maybe the grind is too fine.
- The puck is spongy after being used: Ive never noticed that before. This is despite very firm tamping and measuring about the right amount (trying to get around 18g - this is whats needed to fill the double basket for the Botticelli).
- Tendency to come out a bit watery, even if ground finer - its just a question of how long it takes to come out.
13 on the Rocky seemed about right but in last couple of days it has come out of the portafilter increasingly quicky. Tried 12, doesnt come out at all, tried 12 with lighter tamp, comes out watery.
FWIW, Ive noticed that 14g (supposed to be the standard amount for double-shot basket) produces utter rubbish results, even with various tamping styles. I regularly need to use nearly 20g to get the basket filled and the puck up against the shower screen.
