Coffee Snobbery: Get Your Grind On

The most important thing to know about coffee grounds is it's best to do it at home. Grinding coffee releases all of the wonderful flavors in the bean. The longer it sits the less fresh it will be. A coffee grinder is a pretty inexpensive tool that every coffee snob should own. Now on to the grinds and how to use them.

Extra Course Grinds - best for cold brew systems

Course Grind - french press

Medium-Course Grind - large pour over brewing methods such as Chemex

Medium Grind - Drip pots such as your home coffee maker

Medium-Fine Grind - pour over cones (this is a single serve pour over method) and vacuum pots

Fine Grind - espresso

Extra Fine Grind - Turkish coffee (creates an almost muddy consistency)
