Grinding coffee is one of the most basic tasks that must take place before we can brew great coffee. However, this simple task often gets overlooked as one of the most important ones along the route to great coffee. What exactly happens when we grind coffee? How can different types of grinders and burrs change the grind profile?

Question
We just replaced a 20-plus year old Bunn drip coffee maker.  We replaced it with a VPR-VPS coffee maker, pour-over style with 2 warmers.  The dispenser (carafes) are 12-cup capacity.  If we make a smaller batch (i.e. 6 cups) will this cause a problem with the next full batch?  Our old maker would sometimes either overflow or short the next full batch.
Thanks

Many thanks,

I recently purchased a BUNN Home Brewer from my local Wal-Mart. Very pleased with the excellent coffee flavor that this brewer develops. I use about 2.5 oz of coffee to brew a 10 cup pot. I was using 100% whole bean coffee at first but the brew basket would overflow. I now use about 60% whole bean and then put about 40% pre ground coffee on top. At that ratio I find the

Are you likely to produce something to rival the Clover Brewer? Is there a way to successfully reduce brew contact time to under
2 minutes and still get a rounded brew flavour profile?
