    Weak Coffee

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I seem to associate with a group of wimpy coffee drinkers.

    (one of them is my wife)

    most of them say this coffee is too strong.

    any suggestions other than just add water?

    find a new crowd and ditch the wife before you get too attached.

    what sort of coffee do you make them at the moment?

    Gee your harsh get rid of 20+ years and kids over coffee.

    They have all sorts one woman said she liked strong coffee so I made her a long black, I then diluted it by 3 times (about 33%) strength and she thought that was nice. The final drink was diluted 1:10 this was using a stove top

    the group at work I brought in some coffee for a drip machine I expected them to use all the coffee I provided and they used 30% of it they thought it was nice I thought it was very thin.

    I have been roasting my own beans from various regions.

    I find when I make coffee, I put a 30mL shot in 120mL milk for a cap, and its perfect for me. For my guests, I generally put the same 30mL shot with 190mL milk, and they normally are happy with it.

    I would assume people who like long blacks etc would be expecting a 30mL shot in around a 250mL glass if they dont like it overly strong.
