Mathematicians are their analytical skills to what makes the perfect cup of coffee. It might odd that a team of mathematicians is to establish what is behind the perfect cup of coffee until you that coffee consists of over 1,800 chemical components. If you these with the different ways of brewing coffee, it makes sense because there are a lot of numbers involved. Mathematicians from universities in Ireland and England some complex calculations to how to make an ideal cuppa. Researchers Dr William Lee and Dr Kevin Moroney on what happens to coffee as it through a variety of filter coffee machines.

The scientists their research will the way coffee machines are made. Dr Lee told the BBC News: "Our overall idea is to have a complete mathematical model of coffee brewing that you could to design coffee machines, rather like we use a theory of fluid and solid mechanics to racing cars." In the near future, coffee lovers might able to adjust many of the variables that the taste of the coffee as it is filtered and brewed. These how hot the water is, how fast the water , the size coffee beans are into, the length of time it is brewed, and more. The research is in the journal of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
