Adjusting your grind

You’ve received your Ratio and you’re ready to brew your first coffee. But what grind setting should you use to get the best cup? Here’s a quick guide to getting your grinder dialed-in, using some of our favorite grinders.

 

Baratza Encore Baratza Virtuoso Baratza Vario Fellow Ode
Starting Setting 20 20 10A 5.5
Half-batch (20oz) Dose 35 grams (7 level tablespoons of ground coffee) 35 grams (7 level tablespoons of ground coffee) 35 grams (7 level tablespoons of ground coffee) 35 grams (7 level tablespoons of ground coffee)
Full-batch (40oz) Dose 70 grams (14 level tablespoons of ground coffee) 70 grams (14 level tablespoons of ground coffee) 70 grams (14 level tablespoons of ground coffee) 70 grams (14 level tablespoons of ground coffee)
If your coffee is tasting sour Adjust finer - try settings 18-19 Adjust finer - try settings 18-19 Adjust finer - try settings 9L Adjust finer - try settings 5
If your coffee is tasting bitter or astringent Adjust coarser - try settings 21-22 Adjust coarser - try settings 21-22 Adjust coarser - try settings 10L Adjust coarser - try settings 7

 

If you have another grinder, your ground coffee should be about the same size as sugar-in-the-raw. This will usually fall in the middle range. Also, If your coffee is tasting very sour, try adjusting your grind finer. If it’s tasting dry or astringent, adjust your grind a little coarser. If you need help - just call us.

    Do you have a recommendation for the Breville smart grinder pro? I have a Ratio 6 and have both the Ratio 6 flat bottom paper filters, as well as Able Kone filter for the Ratio 8 thermal carafe. Thanks!

    @Zac We recommend starting with a setting between 5 and 6 on the Ode!

    Recommended starting settings on the Ode for the Ratio 6?
