Water temperature used during extraction is a major factor in how bitter or weak your coffee will taste. Ideal brewing water temperature is between 195-205 degrees
4 Reasons the coffee you make at home taste weak or diluted.
#1 - Insufficient coffee Beans!
If you’re using a french press, it’s recommended a full 2 Tbsps per 6oz of water.
#2 - Brewing time is too shot . . .
As coffee has only 2 ingredients, the flavor and strength of each brew come from the interaction of heat, time, water, and the quality of the beans and under-steeping resulted in a weak coffee
#3 - Brewing temperature . . .
The brewing temperature of the water used is a major factor in influencing how bitter (over-cooked) or weak the coffee will taste.
#4 - Your coffee beans size . . .
The bean size consistency you use is the primary factor in coffee brewing.

OCM (OnCoffeeMakers.com) was started in 2007 with the first webpage about coffee machines. And for a number of years, we focused on helping people find their desired coffee machine (we still are helping folks with that! So, if you are looking for coffee machines for office or restaurants - check out the link).
In 2010, we started getting enquiries on restaurant marketing and we start to help food and beverage brands with their marketing. Below are campaigns and events that we have done over the years:
OCM's campaigns: F&B Marketing Ideas by OCM
OCM's Events: F&B Industry events by or with OCM
Check out this restaurant marketing guide to learn more about the many campaigns and companies we have worked with.
Since then, we have also created many marketing workshops and classes for the F&B industry. Many of these modules are still running in tertiary institutions such as Temasek Polytechnic Skillsfuture Academy and also ITE College East COC classes, below are some snippets of our lectures and workshops:
