Know How To Grind Your Specialty Coffee
Having the correct grind for your chosen brewing method is important. This allows you to extract the best flavour from your beans and ensures the perfect cup of coffee! If you are new to specialty coffee, you may not know that grinding your own whole beans at home is one way to preserve the freshness on the beans.
Once you have ordered yourself some coffee beans online, you will need to get yourself a coffee grinder. The Rhino Compact Hand Coffee Grinder is a great solution for grinding coffee on-the-go, for travel, work, or even just at home. The grinder is easily adjustable for a wide range of grind types. Alternatively, you can also let us know how you would like your coffee beans ground and we can do it for you and ship ground coffee directly to you.
Now you may be asking yourself, what are the different grind types? The different methods of brewing require different coarseness of ground coffee. This is because each piece of brewing equipment has a different filter method, which is used to extract the flavour from the ground coffee. For example, something like an expresso machine requires a fine ground in order to process the grounds through the machine and extract that strong expresso hit! Check out our cheat sheet below for the grind type we recommend for our specialty coffee, depending on the brewing method. If you have any questions, send us a message!
