I'm hoping to bring something to the table that will shock and awe the entire population of coffee geeks in Minneapolis. I thought about doing some magic tricks to start the night off and then progress into the whole "science" thing.
Tuesday night will include these exciting topics;
- The Scientific Method (how to define and control variables)
- Bimodal Grinding (grind profiles which use various particle sizes)
- Clever Brewing Method (I don't like the Clever Brewing method... I absolutely love it!!)
- Setting the Grind (recommendations for various brew methods)
We will conduct an experiment using testing sieves to control grind particle distribution. We are planning to brew with the Clever, blind taste the results, and discuss how particle distribution affects flavor in the cup. Our second experiment will focus on steep times.
