Reading time: 2 coffee sips ☕☕
Should I grind my coffee? But why? What equipment do I need? Can I even do it? How? Too many questions? ... I need coffee. Read our short grind guide and enjoy the best possible coffee, no matter the brewing method.
All those questions ... But don’t worry, we GOAT your BAA-ck.
First of all - of course you should grind you coffee! There's no other way of making a good brew but to grind your beans just before brewing. You see, as soon as you grind the beans, they will start losing their flavor and (oh my!) the seductive aroma ... therefore every second counts.
So get yourself a grinder with adjustable grind levels and let’s get started. There are (of course) more than 50 shades of ground coffee in practice. But to help you out, here are the 7 Types + Devices that will put all this on some scale:
- Extra Coarse: Cold Brewing (like Cold Drip with GINA)
- Coarse: French Press (and GINA for immersion)
- Medium-Coarse: Chemex (and GINA for pour-over)
- Medium: Drip Pots
- Medium-Fine: Vacuum pots and siphon brewers
- Fine: Espresso, Moka Pot
- Extra Fine: Turkish Coffee
Find the type that suits your exquisite taste best ... we suggest ALL of them.
