    Grind size influences strength?

    Good afternoon,

    While developing a new coffee machine I was wondering whether the strenght of the coffee can be controlable influenced by changing the grindsize and grindtime. (using a burr-grinder).

    Than it would be possible, while using the same amount of coffee beans, grinding coarse for weak coffee, grind medium for medium strength and fine grindsize for darker coffee.

    Does this make any sence? What is your opinion on this matter?

    Thanks in advance

    Robert

    hi there

    the size of the grind does influence the strength of the coffee.
    beans of the same roast can be used for different types of coffee....as you already know.
    the finer your coffee, the more contact it makes with the water...the coarser your grind...the less contact it makes with it...
    you can have a realy strong roast but if your grind is wrong you can make a realy weak cup of coffee.

    lol...size does matter
    some people have pearly whites.....others drink coffee!

    Grind size

    oh yes, size certainly matters! Small grinds make stronger brews.

    Here's my take on it. I like to grind the finest I can get by with for a specific extraction method and adjust the strength by using more/less water. Later!
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!

    to some extent it does but the amount of water, brewing temp. & time matter most.
