    Baratza encore grind setting for a 3 hole melitta pour over dripper

    Hi guys.

    I've been looking all over the internet but couldn't find information on this. I see posts regarding grind settings on the one hole melitta dripper or the bee house 2 hole dripper. But has anyone used a melitta 3 hole dripper. I actually have the kalita 102, which is the same as the 3 hole melitta.

    I have a baratza encore and seem to be having a hard time dialing in the grind size for this 3 hole pour over drip. Has anyone have ny experience regarding this? Should i go finer on it or coarser?

    I think experimentation is your best bet on this. The grind seeing you use will depend on your personal taste. I don't have a melitta dripper, mine is a Hario, when I use it I generally set my encore to about 12 but that's just me. It might give you a starting point to work with.

    thanks flphotog. did you ever try opening your encore to see where your calibration was? i wanted to ask this just so i might have an idea which grind size you have (because the encore has more calibration settings for coarse, neutral, and fine, which gives it way more settings then usual)

    I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, the only way to tell the grind setting is by the setting on the top under the hopper. To open it up you unscrew the hopper which of course invalidates the grind setting.

    There's an internal adjustment too, that shifts everything finer or coarser too. But yours is stock since you bought it new, which is fine for everybody, but the extreme geeks that have to putz with everything.

    lol that is quite true peter. well i'll play around with the external grind settings a little. i tried flphotog's setting and it was too strong for me, so i'll adjust it a bit coarser with every brew that i make. thanks a lot guys!

    Thanks Peter, didn't know that. I never looked, I guess I just figured I could muddle by with the 40 choices I already had.

    I'd have to check with Baratza to see if this internal adjustment is on the newer models, and which models. It was used by people who either couldn't get it to grind fine enough for espresso, and/or coarse enough for press pot. But they've added some more increments to the grind settings, and I'd think the average user can leave the grinder as it's set from the manufacturer.

    The thought that occurred to me in this thread is to understand the correlation between grind setting and steep time/flow rate of a given filter holder. Since a 1-hole will drip slower than a 3-hole, it would make you think the coffee could be ground finer. The paper filter used can affect that as well. The over-riding consideration however, should be to change only one variable at a time. Keep one grinder setting, and play with the water:coffee ratio - get that down, and see if changing the grinder has any effects. Maybe I'm just lazy, or maybe I did enough geeking out in my earlier coffee days, but my Virtuoso never changes; it stays on 12 for press pot, pourover with a screen filter, Yama vacpot, etc. Sometimes I wonder if the minute improvements we're always chasing are really discernible.
