I have never used it for press, but figure that 1/4 turn = 1 "click" on the porlex and try this guide (starting from tightest setting or full clockwise): Extra Fine (Turkish) = 1 - 2 clicks Fine (Espresso) = 3 - 4 Medium-Fine (Fine-Medium?) = 5 - 6 Medium (Filter) = 7 - 8 Medium-Coarse = 9 - 10 Coarse (French Press) = 11 - 12
Damn you.
Yes. And a mini-scale for travel.
Pour over is only weak or under extracted if the person doing it doesn't know how to do it right. The same applies to espresso. There is nothing wrong with either method, but both require attention to detail. In contrast, French Press, CCD, etc. are almost impossible to eff up and require minimal, if any, attention span.
Not if done right.
I have used up to 18g in the Panama Mill I linked to. I don't use it for coarse grind, so I can't comment. I only use it for Chemex or Aeropress.
Go with the Zass. Much more stable and consistent grind size.
The best if cost doesn't matter is the Lido - http://www.oehandgrinders.com/OE-LIDO-2-Manual-Coffee-Grinder_p_14.htmlFor about 1/2 the cost of the Lido, I prefer the Zass Panama Mill over the Porlex - http://www.clivecoffee.com/product/Zassenhaus_panama_coffee_grinder.html
As noted by TweedyProf, the pattern matching at the shoulder is impressive.
Yeah, that's probably my best bet. I'd like a nice A1 with buttons and all leather (no elastic).
