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:
Select fine ground for short brew cycles (like espresso machines), medium ground for longer brew cycles (like drip machines), and more coarse for immersion brewing (like a French press).The Grinder is Key!
