minimum dose size?

I use the Hario switch to brew my coffee and am trying to reduce my caffeine consumption. Hence I would like to brew smaller cups of coffee. I am currently using 10g of coffee with 160g of water. (1:16 Ratio) I am wondering if there is a minimum amount of coffee...

Hi all, so basically just got into specialty coffee, before this I'd only ever had instant and over roasted coffee from big chains, since I live in a country with no specialty coffee shops.

My set up is, single origin guatamalan beans (freshly roasted a week ago). I grind in an electric blade grinder (burr is on the way) and brew in my mokapot.

I've been tinkering around with grind sizes temperatures. First brew was too fine and tasted ultra bitter, made one that was coarse and had too much sourness. Now I'm at somewhat of a mid-point, but I'm not sure the sour I taste is supposed to be there (bean tasting notes say that it has tart fruit) or if I'm doing something wrong.

Keep in mind I don't like black coffee, I usually add frothed milk to make a latee. The milk makes the coffee really enjoyable, great fullness mouth feel. It gets rid of the sourness but I can still taste the coffee itself.

So yeah, is that just what black coffee is supposed to taste like and I just don't enjoy it or is it something I'm doing wrong.
