Coffee extraction is the process of dissolving soluble compounds, such as oils, acids, sugars, and caffeine, from the coffee grounds into the brewing water. Proper extraction is crucial for achieving a well-balanced and flavorful cup. Factors like grind size, water temperature, brew time, and brewing method influence extraction, affecting the concentration of flavours, acidity, body, and overall taste experience.
