What Grinder for Pour Over??

I have not yet tried it with coarser ground size as for pour over... speaking of which, what ground size do you guys like best for pour over with a paper cone filter? I'm approximating, of course; but I guess I try to shoot for something fairly coarse, perhaps .5mm in size? What say you?

Its probably a tad finer than that, you invariably get some powder, but I usually set the size for pour over as 'fine as possible' until I get a little bitterness in the cup, then go one coarser... is that what you guys do? but its tough to quantify the size...


I grind to a size that gives a 4-5 minute brew time (including a 30-45 second steep period). I steep until the bloom starts to collapse which is different with each origin, then 3.5 to 4.5 minutes of brew time.

I've found that each pour over filter requires a bit of a tweak to the grinder settings to stay within this time frame.
