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
  • Bodum - #13
