The Art of Coffee – Back to the Grind

coffee-grinds-

Hand mills have been used for hundreds of years. Effective, but with a smaller capacity, they take too much time to grind for our consumption levels today.

Coffee lovers and connoisseurs will appreciate getting the best out of their favorite gourmet coffees. The ideal grinds are evenly shaped to extract the perfect beverage.

Types of Coffee Grinders

  1. Hand Mills: typically square shaped with a hand crank and small drawer for the grains
  2. Turkish Grinders: tall copper or brass mills still used in Turkey and the Middle East
  3. Electric Grinders: blade or propeller grinder, best for smaller amounts of beans
  4. Burr Mills: the best domestic grinder using two discs for grinding

Degrees of Grinds

Beans being used by different machines require different grinds to get the best out of the bean.  Different roasts will produce different extraction rate.

  • Medium Grind
  • Turkish Grind
  • Espresso Grind
  • Fine (filter) grind
  • Omnigrind: a fine to medium grind, good for most coffee makers

    Italian Barista Tip:

    To produce the perfect espresso will alter the grinder on high humidity days to produce a slightly coarser grind.
