Does anyone have experience with dropping their dose down to anything lower than 16g and using a ratio that would still produce a 34g+ yield? I’m waiting on some parts to arrive (15g VST baskets and IMS shower screens) so I can do some experimenting but I’d really like to hear if anyone else had already done this.
It’s easy to do the math and come to a caluculated guess as to what will happen based off of resources readily available however I’ve always found human experience more valuable. Cheers in advance for any help!
Did you drop your pump pressure?
Did you get smaller dose baskets?
Did you grind a lot finer?
What machine did you use?
What grinder did you use?
PuqPress or manual tamp?
Precision tamper or basic tamper?
How much money did you save?
Worth the effort?
Was there a substantial difference in taste?
Any info hugely appreciated and I’ll post up some results when my parts arrive.
We’re a cafe that’s more focused on flavour over caffeine content and I’m asking because the owners want to cut costs in ways that won’t affect wages and other silly things. Also to potentially help our equipment (burrs mainly) last longer.
