Coffee Lingo


The term “flowrate” is used in the industry in different ways:

1) Speed of the →water out of the grouphead, influenced by pump pressure and mechanical flow restrictors. Some people are using the term “water-debit” for this.

2) Speed of the water after the restriction of the ground beans. Both measured in grams per second.

The flowrate has an immense impact on the →extraction of our →coffee. We believe it’s the most important one and we invite you to join our religion of flow.
