Coffee Log 24

Good morning and welcome to the first October Edition of the Coffee Log. Right to it then. Today I made my cup with 4 Tbsp of grounds, just for the fun of it, with everything else the same as always. Things were a little slow to get moving, with the first drips coming down around 3:44”, but I watched the chamber fill with similar speed, finishing in just 4:01”. This could have been due to filling the bottom chamber up just slightly more than usual (I didn’t bother pouring any back out when I passed the mark).

Today I set out to discover whether 3 and a half tablespoons was really the ideal amount of coffee grounds to use in the Moka Express. Well, if the magic number isn’t 3.5, it’s awfully close.

Good Thursday morning to you all. Today I started my day with the expected light roast, which I brewed in my Moka Express set on a gas burner on medium heat (setting 5) and 2 and 2/3 Tbsp of coffee grounds. It took 3:17” for coffee to start pouring out into the top chamber, and 3:28” for the brew to complete.

Welcome back to the Coffee Log. I’ve had a couple skips in the last few days. Yesterday, for instance, there was no post because I didn’t make coffee in the morning (yes, that’s the first time since starting the Log that this has happened). Although, I still had a cup a little later from the machine at work, so I suppose I could have written about that.

Exciting changes are afoot for the Coffee Log. Starting this past Saturday, I’ve been using my brand new Trader Joe’s light roast Arabica grounds. I was expecting to be able to make a direct comparison to the medium roast and proclaim definitively that I prefer one to the other, but to be honest, the flavor profiles of these two roasts are so different, it’s apples and oranges.
