Hi all, I've looked around on many blogs and I can't seem to find an answer to my question... It seems that many of us choose the dose to be a fix quantity (depending on the basket size), and we adjust the grind size to change the extraction time. I'm wondering, what's the difference between grinding coarser and putting more coffee, or grinding finer but putting less. Both options can give you the same result in the yield and time. I can keep my grind size the same, only changing the dose and I will get different extraction time.
I first tried those when I was getting super long first drop, and then, super fast extraction. I questioned the quantity of coffee and tried many scenarios.
Now I'm wondering, why do we only calibrate grind size instead of changing the dose?
P.S.: I'm using a Linea Mini, Forte AP grinder, 18g IST basket.
