How to adjust grind size
To create the perfect cup of third wave specialty coffee to suit your taste, it's critical to adjust the grind size of your roasted coffee beans. Professional baristas call adjusting the grind setting to achieve the ideal extraction “dialing it in.” This process regulates the speed of hot water flowing over ground coffee to properly extract the full flavor of the espresso. The Barista Pro™ has 30 grind settings. We recommend starting with setting 15 and adjusting the grind finer or coarser from there depending on your preference. The grind dial is in the center. Simply turn the dial clockwise to adjust the grind to finer, and turn it counterclockwise to grind the beans more coarsely. With the Barista Pro™, customizable, café-quality coffee drinks are right at your fingertips!
