Coffee extraction is a balance between grind size and time. It is so important to have a consistent particle size when grinding coffee beans into smaller pieces. If the grind is inconsistent it will cause some of the grounds to be over extracted, while others are under extracted. These are many factors that affect the coffee extraction process, including the type of coffee beans used, the grind size, the dose amount and tamping pressure.
