While we recommend grinding your coffee using a home grinder, we offer numerous grind settings for customers who would like us to grind their coffee before shipping. Our standard options for grinding span from 2 to 5 in half-point intervals, though we offer all grind settings upon request.
The following Coffee Grind Options Chart is a list of the more common methods of coffee preparation and their corresponding grind settings.
Some General Guidelines on Choosing a Grind Level
Try to match the grind of your coffee to your method of coffee preparation. Grind your coffee as fine as you can without clogging the holes of your coffee maker or filter. The finer the grind is, the more surface area of the coffee is exposed to water, leading to greater flavor extraction. Be careful not to use coffee ground too fine in your French Press Maker because the grounds could slip past the screens and end up in your cup. Coffee ground too coarse, on the other hand, will lead to under-extraction of flavor.
Brew time is also important. Depending on your brew method, the amount of time your ground coffee is in contact with water can vary between 30 seconds and 12 or more hours (cold drip). A longer grounds-to-water contact time calls for a coarser grind. Consult the grind recommendations of the manufacturer of your coffee maker for a good starting point on the proper grind level for your coffee. Experiment after that.
