I did the side-by-side using Starbuck's Sumatra. I ground the same amount of beans for each cup, using a fine grind. In the first cup, I poured water when the teapot had it at a rolling boil.

I noticed very little difference, except that the second cup seemed a tiny bit weaker. I figure that was due to the boiling water removing a bit more from the grounds in the first cup. I'm guessing if I ground a few more beans for the second cup, they would have been just about identical.


Do another test someday with some beans that haven't been scorched..... Smile Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a very dark roast from time to time. It's difficult to detect nuance when drinking the Aussie Shiraz of coffees.... 2 Cents
