I noticed that in yesterday's brew, the particles were so fine that towards the end of the brew, the water literally had to drip to pass through the density of the grounds, so I increased the grind size, and wow, it was such a sweet cup! I'm guessing with less surface area, it didn't extract some of those bolder solids.

I will admit, I prefer a slightly heavier body because the cup today tasted thin, but the flavors were amazing. I think I will increase temperature by 1º at the same grind size and ratio to see if I can get a bit more, but I feel like I'm in the zone!
