Choosing Your Coffee Grind

Cafetiere Grind

coarse grind is perfect for brewing cafetière coffee. Using a coarse grind for a cafetière allows for a slower extraction which is ideal since the coffee grounds steep in hot water for several minutes. A coarser grind reduces the risk of over-extraction and bitterness. 

Filter Grind

filter grind designed for pour-over coffee or drip such as the Chemex or V60. This grind size allows hot water to flow through the coffee grounds more slowly than with a finer grind, facilitating a balanced extraction.  

Fine Grind

A fine grind is ideal for stovetop espresso makers and the AeroPress. This size ensures that the water, which is not as forceful as in an espresso machine, can still efficiently extract the coffee's flavours in these brewing methods. The AeroPress, in particular, is quite versatile, allowing some flexibility with grind size, but a fine grind can produce a rich and full-bodied coffee.

Espresso Grind

An espresso grind is a very fine grind, almost powdery. This grind size is specifically designed for espresso machines, where the coffee needs to be finely ground to ensure that water can be forced through it under high pressure to create a concentrated and flavourful espresso shot.
