Coffee Data Science

Drying Out an Espresso Shot

An experiment started by a toddler

Why not take some measurements?

It turns out that using a toaster oven to dry out a shot takes too many hours.

Data Analysis

I took Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) measurements throughout, and I was expecting the TDS to greatly increase, but it did not. It took some time for it to increase at all. At the end, I had the dry weight of the solids. There was a large error compared to the very first measurement, but that error dropped for subsequent measurements.
