My Sette comes with two burr shims, but already has one installed. How many more can I add?

My Sette comes with two burr shims, but already has one installed. How many more can I add?

The Sette’s cone burr is shimmed in order to reduce the distance between it and the ring burr. This is done because the Sette, after an initial seasoning period of 8-10 lbs, will grind coarser overall at each setting. Adding a shim under the cone burr moves the grind range back, allowing for fine grinding at low settings. Most users only need to install one or two shims after seasoning, but if you need to install a third, that’s just fine! Each user will require different shimming depending on their use, coffee, and espresso preferences.
