Timed Pulse-pouring

Pour over methods have another level of control called “Timed Pulse-pouring”. Altho it may seem a little tedious, it works really well and provides a more consistent extraction. It also gives you another way to experiment and experience your coffee.
The first 1/3 of the pour is going to control the intensity of the notes and the last 2/3 are going to control the strength. You could now for example do 5 pours of exactly the same amount/time (1.a) or 3 pours of variable amounts/time (1.b).

Following the second example will give you a tea-like cup, more diluted in taste and the notes will be less intense.

Adjusting Grind:
Too Slow & Little Yield
Adjust grind coarser will make the shot run faster, giving you more volume in the same amount of time.
Too Fast & Large Yield
Adjust grind finer will slow down your shot, resulting in less volume in the same amount of time.
