Is it worth the effort to grind your coffee?

coffee grinds

Yes, if you want to enjoy a nice cup of coffee, grinding your beans is the first step. Fresh is always better, as a result freshly ground coffee is better. Aside from the wonderful fragrances and flavors that fresh buzz provides, you’ll be able to choose the size, which has a significant influence on flavor.

What is the significance of grind size?

The size and texture of your grind are vital because the more water contact your coffee gets throughout the brewing process, the faster it will be extracted. You may accidentally inhibit extraction because your grind is too fine for your brewing procedure. Moreover, water may travel through your coffee too fast if the grind is too coarse, resulting in a weak, bland cup.

Is it possible to grind coffee without a grinder?

Yes, if you don’t want to ground them by hand, you may use a blender or food processor. Use a hammer, mortar, pestle, hand mincer, or rolling pin to ground beans by hand. You may make the grind as fine or coarse as you desire with any of these options.

What’s the best way to get started on grinding your coffee?

To get a consistent medium-fine to fine grind, use a mortar and pestle. It will take some time and effort, but the end product should be fantastic. To achieve the correct texture, pulse the beans in a food processor. Try blitzing a scant 1/2 cup of entire beans at a time for more consistent results.

Words of wisdom from #gloocoffeecommunity

coffee grinder

“I got into the coffee during the pandemic and invested in a grinder as soon as I could as I understood it to be one of the most important factors in brewing coffee. Investing in comandante c40 and beginning my coffee brewing journey was one of my best decision.

I started with a french press and gradually bought an Aeropress, v60, origami, Kalita sagan, syphon, Moka pot, and finally a flair pro 2 for espresso.

My usual preference is making pour-overs. I grind at 24 clicks (medium-fine/medium) and tinker with the grind size according to roast profile, taste, and type of coffee grounds. I grind a bit coarser when it comes to washed coffees as they tend to clog the filter. Grind finer if it is sour and coarser if it is acidic.

I am still new to espresso and until recently made terrible brews. However, after watching a lot of videos on YouTube by Lance Hedrick, Aramse, James Hoffmann, etc,”

Aramse Hand grinding guide!

“I have been able to significantly improve my taste. I typically grind between 10-14 clicks depending on the roast profile, effort it takes me to apply pressure on the manual lever, taste, etc.

For the grinder’s longevity, I clean the grinder regularly especially if am using oily beans. Each click is 30 microns.”

Have a great cuppa joe!

Coffee grinder

I got hooked on good coffee because of a friend. My drink is black coffee with no sugar, so French presses are ideal for me. The main reason I opted to get a grinder is to try out different types of coffee beans from different sellers. I usually get about a half kilo in one go, to brew for over a month. A month is really bad for pre-grounds, they lose flavor and start to smell stale no matter how you store them. So, I’m choosing to grind my coffee instead of putting time, energy, and shipping costs towards buying every two weeks or so.

I’m only really in the tryout phase for grinders and entry-tier manual ones the guys on the group recommended are best. The next batch of coffee I get, I’ll be able to spring for small packs of different varieties without worrying about them going stale too soon. If you are like me, it’s better not to add too much complexity, so get roasted beans. Medium roasts from saltoro and Devan’s are my favorite coffee grounds, I love some of their blends.

Happy Brewing!
