Using the right grind size for your brew method
Grind size and grind consistency are pillars of a great and consistent brew.
A fine grind will cause coffee to extract at higher rates and a coarser grind will extract at slower rates.
Follow our brew guides for recommendations on what size of grind pairs best with which brew methods.
As a general rule, filter brewing methods with higher ratios of coffee to water, and longer brew times, will benefit from a medium to coarse grind, and espresso-like methods of brewing which are shorter in their brew times (manual or semi-automatic espresso machines, stovetop) require finer grind sizes.
