(Mirror Daily, United States) – Coffee beans probably make the most famous drink throughout the world, even more than beer or tea. Furthermore, the statistics have shown that around 80 percent of the United States adults drink coffee.
Thanks to its popularity, experts have always tried to find the perfect brew. Coffee has a large variety of flavors, and many countries have their own type of coffee. Plus, the market has plenty of brands so that people can choose whatever they want.
Nevertheless, there are a few secrets that give coffee a higher quality and one of them it’s grinding. The latest study has shown that chilling coffee beans may benefit the coffee flavor.
According to Christopher Hendon, Ph.D. Student at the University of Bath and lead-author of the study, his team wanted to see what happens to the grinding coffee beans if they chill them from room temperature to -196 degrees Celsius.
Based on the results, it turned out that chilling roasted coffee beans had better yield thanks to the fact that smaller particles were produced during the grinding process. In other words, people might benefit from a flavorful and strong cup of coffee from just a fewer grains and a lot faster.
According to Hendon, the process of chilling the beans gives higher extractions with less flavor variance. Therefore, you can get more grinding coffee from the same amount of beans and also brew the coffee faster.
Furthermore, researchers underlined that consistent grind can only be achieved if the beans’ temperature is constant. In addition to this, the surface of the coffee beans maximizes at very low temperatures explaining why you can get more coffee from the same number of beans.
These findings will open a new door for the coffee industry as companies will now be able to produce a coffee that has better taste in larger amounts. In other words, the quality of the coffee will increase.
Plus, people will now be better informed about how to store, use and drink coffee every day. Plus, there will be no waste of coffee beans during the grinding process. In addition to this, the grinding technology might also change thanks to the new findings.
All in all, coffee will probably become even more popular from now on.
