Coffee Bean Grinding

Coffee Bean Grinding

Are you grinding your coffee beans to match your brew?  With a few easy steps you can ensure that you are getting the most from your morning cup.

  • A misaligned grind to brew can lead to an unpleasant or even bitter coffee
  • This cnet article gives some great detail into why you should grind at home 
  • Learn what each type of "grind" actually looks like to know the difference between extra coarse and fine 
  • Here's an easy and downloadable chart featured on thezenkitchen with recommended grinds for each type of coffee preparation
  • Do you need an expensive grinder? Nope even a $40 hand grinder linked below will do. However, if you are making espresso the Rancilio Rocky grinder is sweet

Pat's Note - I wish I learned about coffee earlier in life. I've started to enjoy the process of making the product almost as much as drinking it. I will warn you that once you begin to drink proper coffee, much of the mass produced product you get a local chain coffee shop WILL NEVER TASTE THE SAME AGAIN. Below  is a link to a reasonable grinder that I use at home.
