Using fresh, good quality beans is the foundation to a perfect cup of coffee. Grinding coffee beans is a crucial part of the brewing process, as grinding the beans, immediately before brewing, helps to retain the delicate oils and aromas contained inside the beans. Its also important to have control of the coarseness of the grind so you can adjust it to suit the type of beans and the coffee maker you are using – this has a huge impact on flavour.
When we brew a cup of coffee, we are extracting soluble flavours from coffee beans with hot water. This is called coffee extraction.
There are many variables that can alter the coffee extraction and the taste of your cup.
Each brewing device requires a unique grind size. For example, an espresso shot calls for a finer grind, while a French Press requires a courser grind.
