TDS for filter coffee – 1,4%,
TDS for us – 0.8 percent.
It is obvious that in the process of making a filter coffee, i.e., when the total weight of the ground coffee is brewed with water, the drink is more uniform in taste and extraction. And the us is just simply a classic espresso blend with water and is actually the result of conventional mixing.
