Coffee Grinds

Grinding coffee to the right particulate size is a key to making great coffee - if the grinds are too large your coffee will be under-extracted (weak) and if they're too fine it will be over-extracted (bitter) or you may get coffee grinds in your cup.

Coffee grinds are associated with a numbering system, with lower numbers being fine and higher numbers being coarse. Here are our common coffee grinds and the products they're associated with:

  • Turkish - #1
  • Espresso #4
  • Cone Filter #6
  • Espresso stove top #7
  • Flat Filter #9
  • Percolator #11
