Brewtality Coffee Barista

The backbone of great coffee is using the correct coffee grounds for each brew method you choose. Don’t underestimate the importance of grinding. Your grounds are your most valuable and overlooked tool in your brewing arsenal! If you cannot grind at home or do not have a good conical burr grinder we can ship your coffee to you in your preferred grind size.

What are the popular coffee grind sizes?

The following grind sizes are all you’ll need to brew a great cup of coffee within a range of different coffee brewing methods. You can't just choose one grind size and use it for everything. Different grinds are best suited for certain coffee makers and methods. Yes, you’ll notice some coffee brewing methods fall under more than one grind size category, this is because you can control the outcome of your brew with your grind size as well as the brewing time for certain brewing methods. Remember the goal of this is to get perfectly extracted coffee every time.


Coffee Grind Types 

Lets take a look at the grind sizes that we offer and what they are best suited for:

1. Whole Bean:

Not a grind per say, but an option we offer that lets you, the customer keep your coffee as fresh as possible. If you do grind it yourself, we recommend a conical or flat burr grinder. Just say no to blades!

2. French Press Grind 

This grind resembles sea salt and is most recommended for a French Press, percolator or chemex.  This particular grind works well with "traditional" style methods because the larger size of the grinds results in a more rounded cup and smoother mouthfeel.  Also the larger size of the grinds results in less particles in your brew, leaving an overall cleaner cup.

3. Auto Drip Grind

The middle of the road as far as grinds are concerned. It basically looks like beach sand in consistency and is perfect for flat bottomed drip coffee makers, cone-shaped pour-over coffee makers, the AeroPress (With 3+minute brew time) and siphon brewers.  With drip coffee makers the contact time between the water and the coffee is relatively short so with the smaller size of the grind it is possible to achieve maximum extraction with limited bitterness.

4. Espresso Grind

The finest grind that we offer, our Espresso grind is slightly smaller than table salt.  The fine consistency offers maximum extraction which makes it perfect for espresso and the AeroPress (with a 1-2 minute brew time).
