Grinding for more consumer machines?
I need to roast up and grind a few bags of coffee as a gift for a fella who has a consumer machine (not sure which) but no grinder. I have found in the past that the espresso grind that is perfect for my E-61 machine from the Macap tends to choke Breville/Sunbeam style machines. Any ideas how far towards a plunger style grind I'd need to head in my grind settings to be relatively safe from choking his machine? Half way?
Unfortunately There is no right or wrong answer as each day and each machine is different. When I say day as in humidity and tempreture that will affect the extraction of the coffee. Yes you can buy the pregrounded coffees from woolies but those are not as fresh as they can be. FYI each grinder is also different in terms of steps or stepless.

Probably better a little too course than too fine Matt.
go about half way between a filter grind and the grind you use for your machine, for starters
