GRINDING HOW TO
Grinding is one of the most critical steps to producing an amazing cup of coffee.
Here are a few tips:
1. Always grind right before brewing.
2. Only grind what you need each time, because the minute you grind your coffee, it loses flavor.
3. Purchasing pre-ground coffee, whether in a bag, can or pod, is not recommended, but sometimes the convenience outweighs the loss of flavor. You get to decide what works best for you.
Adjust your grind for the type of coffee:
Fine ground for short brew cycles (like espresso machines)
Medium ground for longer brew cycles (like drip machines)
More coarse for press pots (like a French press).
The Grinder is Key! The best type of grinder to use is a burr grinder, as it produces the most consistent and exact grind. Blade grinders are the worst - producing coffee grounds of boulders and dust - robbing you of your coffee's best potential flavor.
