Hi there: I have just bought a new Sylvia together with a "Rocky" grinder
and wonder waht the right grind should be. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

When I get a new roast, I usually set my Rocky to 10 and adjust similar
to what Harry described above. I seldom have to adjust out of the 8-12
range for a 25 second 1-1.5 oz shot, and my Rocky goes burr to burr at
3.5.

Mine is usally 10, 11, or 12 depending on all the aforementioned
variables.

The right grind will depend upon the freshness of the coffee, the humidity,
the temperature, and other variables. One author includes the alignment of
the stars. But set it a few detents above the finest setting and try it.
Adjust to get a 25-30 second double shot. I have to adjust mine almost
daily when the humidity changes like it has the last two weeks. For
example, the setting I used yesterday to produce a 25-second double shot was
too fine today and resulted in a 40-second shot of slightly under 2 ounces
[50 cc].
