A secret ingredient that will make ground coffee taste much better is named
For a long time, it has been believed that adding a little water to coffee beans before grinding them can make coffee taste much better. And recently, researchers from the University of Oregon have confirmed this theory.
According to Christopher Hendon, one of the participants in the study, this coffee preparation technique was previously used to reduce dirt during the grinding process. Dust from coffee would rise and fly in all directions. But there was no such effect with wet beans, CNN writes.
Over time, this theory has evolved into a sophisticated way to get a better drink. That's why researchers decided to test it. According to the results of the study, it turned out that adding water really does make the drink better. The fact is that grinding coffee with water avoids static energy and lumps. As a result, absolutely all of the coffee will be used during the brewing process, leaving no residue.
After reading the results of this study, Lance Hedrick, a coffee expert, decided to test this theory himself. According to him, the use of wet beans does indeed produce a similar effect. However, it varies greatly depending on the grinder used at a particular time.
That's why, he says, you really should sprinkle the coffee beans before sending them to the grinder. Even if a particular machine does not achieve the desired effect of eliminating static energy, this method will significantly reduce the release of coffee dust and the amount of cleaning.
