Thanks Doug. Yes I do mean the 5-cup Yama.
You may recall a post of mine earlier this month about my travails with the
vac pot. I found that going finer on the grind brought up the body and
flavor from the thin coffee I was experiencing. It was counterintuitive to
go finer. I had been using the grind I use for drip thinking that finer
would produce a stall. Not so! In fact, it drew down a little quicker. I
usually grind for drip at 14 on my Anfim grinder. Espresso is about 9. The
most recent vac pot coffee was ground at 11. I think I'll try finer until I
produce a stall, or the tell-tale bitterness of over-extraction shows up.
BTW, for me bitterness is a great way to zero in on grind. I've seen it
come and go with just a single increment on a grinder. I've had good luck
dialing down the grind until the bitterness shows up and then moving coarser
by one notch. It ought to work with the vac pot, methinks.
