The achievements in coffee technology of the last decade have led to a reexamination of best practice in brewing across the common brewing range. A result of this has been the redrawing of some boundaries. A specific modernisation of the new cCCC is the shifting of the extraction goal posts to the right. To ensure this chart is inclusive of regional preferences that often traverse deeper across the extraction spectrum than has previously been recognised, we are asking for your contribution. In particular we are researching your preferences for, drip, plunger, cupping, cezve/Ibrik, stovetop, and pod/capsule brew methods to better position these brew methods on this chart.
Here's the plan:To correctly place the brew ratio margins for each brew method we need to hear from you on what your highest and lowest ratio is for each brew method style. If you can communicate you answer in terms of Dose of coffee and Total Brew Water using grams, with measurements accurate to 0.1 of a gram. We also ask that you don't include the unit of measurement. Numbers only please.
Pay special attention to when we ask for beverage weight, as distinct from brew water weight. We're using the metric system for this survey so answers in grams only. Can you please let us know your answers correct to a tenth of a gram when necessary. And there is no need to use any symbol of measurement for your responses. Just write the number. All your responses feed into a spreadsheet and it only understands numbers.
We think this is a really exciting advance for coffee making and we thank you for taking part.To the boundaries of Coffee.
