Ascaso i-Steel I-1 Mod

After a quick lesson from our local espresso guru in Nijmegen, I concluded that my espresso grinder was just not grinding fine enough to pull that perfect shot.

The grinder was already on its finest setting, so I was tempted open it up and see what adjustments I can make.

Very interesting read!
