HOW TO GRIND COFFEE
KNOW YOUR GRIND
Your coffee grind has a big impact on the quality of your brew. What's the right grind size? It depends on how you brew your coffee! And since there are a lot of different ways to brew a delicious cup, we decided to make you this handy guide so you could explore them all.
We suggest using a burr grinder, which is great because it gives a nice consistent grind. But if you only have a blade grinder, don't despair - just get as close as possible. We've heard that giving a blade grinder a good shake while grinding can help even things out.
DID YOU KNOW?
The oils that give a coffee its most beautiful notes evaporate very quickly after you grind the beans. So, for the most delicious cup, try grinding just enough for what you're about to brew. Grinds in bold are available for purchase, however we always recommend buying whole bean and grinding at home for best flavor.
