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.

Welcome to the casual Friday edition of Coffee Log. By casual Friday, I mean I didn’t do any strict measuring, and that there isn’t a whole lot to say about it. I finally used up the medium roast; the remainder of the bag filled the filter up most of the way, leaving maybe the width of three quarters between the top of the grounds mound and the lip of the filter. Brew time was ~3:20”.
