If your coffee is too strong or weak

Check your grind

A finer grind results in a higher extraction and strength. A coarser grind results in a lower extraction and strength.

Check your coffee-to-water ratio

Too much coffee can result in a brew that is too strong and sour. Insufficient coffee can result in a brew that is weak and bitter.
