Math Helps You Brew A Better Cup Of Espresso, Here Is How

Mathematicians said that using fewer coffee beans and ground them roughly would give you more consistent quality from cup to cup, and the same strength

When mathematicians, material scientists, and physicists work together on something, you know how serious the endeavor can get. And this time, the subject of experimenting is coffee.

According to experts from Switzerland, the US, Ireland, the UK, and Australia, all we know about espresso might be wrong. They said that using fewer coffee beans and ground them roughly would give you more consistent quality from cup to cup, as well as the same strength.

As most of us believe, the fine grind has a more exposed surface area to the hot water, thus increase the extraction yield.

That is not exactly accurate as pointed out by a model developed by some mathematicians. They take into consideration the factors that the barista can control, including coarseness and fineness of the grounds, and water pressure. According to the model, things are more complex than we thought.

Fine grinding can clog the coffee bed, which in turn, reduces extraction yield and waste the raw material.

The extraction yield relies heavily on the way water flows through the coffee groundmass. However, if the mass consists of millions of grains of different sizes and shapes, users might need more computing power than Google has to solve the problem of extracting the most out of a coffee bed.

It was not until the scientists and mathematicians turned to electrochemistry that they found an answer. After that, they succeeded in creating a coffee extraction mode that can help us reduce wastage and enhance reproducibility

The mathematicians believe that their models can help people brew a better cup of coffee without wasting too much of the raw material. However, they also said that they did not want to take creativity from coffee making.
