Cuprajake I’m sure the sentiment is right, but this video doesn’t help. As a newbie and someone who likes data this just asks more questions than it answers. He pulled 2 entirely differently set up shots that tasted different and happened to look different.
If the message was do what’s best for the taste and ignore the look, much like people say don’t fixate on the 30 second mark, then make the point with similar setups. Alli want to know is about the weight difference, the filter paper, the puck screen on the impact of the taste.
I get perfect even appearance of drops on my vst with thorough wdt and a level bed that I tamp with leveling tamper. No need to pack more on the edges. So what’s the take away? I need to look at all the other variables that were different in his video to get a better shot?
