Using MoJoToGo to Maintain Equipment

Posted on August 16, 2010 by

You can argue that with burrs this worn I should have figured it out sooner, and you’d probably be right. But in my defense, this sort of damage doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a gradual process, with nearly imperceptible changes occurring very slowly. MoJoToGo noticed though, and quickly isolated worn burrs as the cause of poor extraction. Which just goes to show – science tastes good.

    out of interest, how did the mojo work that out…?

    Consistently low numbers, despite my best efforts. Others using the same coffee had no issues, so I tried a different grinder.

    Hey mikenis that for espresso? If not have you used the mojo for espresso? If yes how have you liked it. I’ve only been using it for coffee.

    Hey Rich, this is from my filter setup. I haven’t spent much time with espresso, but I’d definitely like to.

    Thanks Mike. Yeah me too. It seems like a daunting task but I’ll get around to it. I first used it to dial in our brewer and now am using it to practice pour overs. It’s an amazing tool. I have found best results with mid 1.3′s and extraction about 19.5-20%. Strength level is sufficient and it keeps the coffee juicy with a very clean finish. I had trouble getting consistent readings until Vince explained to me that I needed to clean it with an alcohol swab after several uses and recalibrate every week.
