Grindstone~Lets Talk About That Grind

The ideal consistency of your ground coffee depends mainly on what type of brewing method you are going to use. Small changes in grind size can drastically affect the taste of your final brew. Trial and error will give you your perfect consistency based on your brewing method and preference.
  • If you brew coffee that is ground too coarse, the coffee can be under-extracted (weak) and less flavorful.
  • If your coffee is ground too fine, the coffee can be over-extracted and bitter.
