  • As beans get older

    As your roasted beans age what changes do you make to your brewing technique ie grind, dose, tamp, if any ????

    Re: As beans get older

    I personally only adjust the grind slightly finer....but seeing as a bag only lasts me about three days, it doesnt normally have to change much.

    I always try and keep dose and tamp the same no matter the bean. The less variables the better as far as Im concerned.

        Im with Richard on this too. As a data point (of perhaps dubious value...) - I dose my grinder with a volumetric measure and then grind.. So the volume is constant, the tamp is constant..

        What changes is the grind - and that turns out to be about a quarter of a turn on the worm drive "micro" adjuster on the Macap every couple of days. The problem with this is that someone ( ;D ) forgets to re-set when the bag-o-beans runs out and you end up with a choke on the Silvia for the first pull out of a new bag.

        Doesnt matter how many times I do this, I seem to never be able to remember!

        Cheers

          Thanks guys (and Andy), took on your advice and adjusted grind, with some great results, 23 day old Colombian Volcan Galeras pouring nicely and drinking beautifully.
