The coffee on the left is lighter than the coffee on the right. The coffee on the bottom is the ground version of the coffee on the top (with greater difference for lighter coffees than for darker coffees)
@neal I saw the root of the thread but couldn't figure out how your description applied to it!

Sorry about that. Thanks for the explanation!
